I fell in love with Banh Mi several years ago when I had my first sub from a food truck in Portland, Oregon. I couldn't get enough of those fresh flavours!
So I've taken those fresh flavours and transformed them into a unique and delicious devilled egg! These Banh Mi Devilled Eggs are bursting with all the freshness of mint, cilantro, carrots, cucumbers and onions. They are also quick and easy to make, gluten-free, Weight Watchers friendly (1 WW point on the blue plan) and make a great snack or appetizer!

Devilled eggs make the perfect egg appetizers because they are so versatile and the ideal finger food. Not only are they quick and simple to make, they can be served at any sized gathering, casual or elegant, and work for everything from picnics to holiday meals and dinner parties!
Devilled eggs also make great snacks for after school, movie nights or can be packed along in a lunch bag for school or work.
Did you know?
So many people across Canada play an important role in delivering quality eggs to Canadians. Egg farmers from coast to coast are proud to provide their fellow Canadians with local, nutritious, versatile and high-quality eggs.
- There are more than 1,100 egg farmers in all ten provinces and the Northwest
Territories working together to provide the fresh, local and high-quality eggs
Canadians want and enjoy.
- Giving back and supporting communities across Canada is a cornerstone of our egg farming sector. Like many others, recent events put a spotlight on the importance of doing what we can to support our friends, neighbours and community members.
- Canada’s egg farming sector stepped up in a big way, donating millions of eggs to food banks across Canada.
Join us in celebrating those working together to keep Canadians fed by watching (and sharing) this video featuring Chef Lynn Crawford and Canadian egg farmers who share their gratitude on World Egg Day.
Best Devilled Eggs
If you want to make the best devilled eggs, then you need to start with perfectly cooked eggs! (See Video in NOTES). Make sure you don't overcook the eggs because you'll end up with an unattractive dark ring around the yolk. This can also be avoided by running cold water over the just-cooked eggs until they are completely cooled. Then refrigerate the eggs in their shells until you’re ready to use them. Hard-cooked eggs in the shell can be refrigerated up to one week. You can read more about that HERE.
So if you are looking for an easy and fresh egg appetizer or snack, then give these Banh Mi Devilled Eggs a try or PIN IT for later!
