There are a lot of deviled egg recipes out there, so you may be wondering, "does the internet really need another deviled egg recipe?" My answer is a resounding "YES!" -the internet needs this devilled egg recipe!
I had no idea what the secret ingredient was in these deviled eggs; I just knew they were AMAZING! And when my aunt finally gave me the recipe, I thought, "it's DILL!" ~ And yes, it was dill but that's not all; there was also another secret ingredient that made them so darn delicious! These Dill Deviled Eggs have the perfect balance of dill, yet aren't too 'dilly, ' if you know what I mean? They are Weight Watchers friendly @ 1 WW point per serving on the blue plan and gluten-free!
But it made perfect sense there was dill in them. I frickin' love dill! Maybe it's the Ukrainian in me (Ukrainian's tend to cook with a lot of dill), but even my favorite Chili's secret ingredient is dill!
💭 Top tip
However, you need to be careful with dill- you can overdo it. I tried to add a little more dill to this recipe and it just did not work. You really can get too much of a good thing, especially when it comes to herbs. So even if you LOVE dill, don't add extra to this recipe!
When I told my kids that Auntie Leanne wrote down her recipe and gave it to me so I could post it AND I was making it as a part of our New Year's finger food appetizer buffet, they were sooo excited! But when my daughter said, "I can't wait to try them!" I was really surprised and confused. Apparently she had never actually tried one because they were so popular at our family gatherings, that by the time she got to them, they were all gone! I've got good reason to believe that this simple recipe will become your new favorite too!
If you're looking for different devilled eggs recipes, you'll love this because it's not your typical. And that's because it has a couple of special ingredients that make it unique. My Banh Mi Devilled Eggs are also a unique devilled eggs recipe. And if you like it a little spicy, then these ones are for you! You'll be amazed at how well the flavors meld.
I am pretty picky about eating deviled eggs. I need to know how long it's been since they were made and I need to trust the source. I have had some not-so-good experiences eating deviled eggs that weren't exactly fresh tasting
💭 How long do deviled eggs last in the fridge?
They should be consumed within two days, which is generally considered the maximum amount of timed eviled eggs remain safe to eat when stored in the refrigerator. And because eggs are perishable, they should be kept chilled at all times. Once prepared, store them in the fridge right away. You can make them in advance, but if I'm making them for others, I'm only making them the day before, at most. They taste best fresh! Although, I admit I have pushed that 2 day limit just a little, especially when I make them. I just can't bear to see devilled eggs go to waste!

Like I said, I'm pretty particular when it comes to deviled eggs and these are amazing! You can thank the dill for that... oh and one more thing....
The other secret ingredient is Ranch dressing! I was surprised Auntie Leanne also put ranch dressing in her dill devilled egg recipe. And does it ever work! So, if you're looking for an appetizer that you won't be able to resist, then give these a try.
📋 Dill Devilled Eggs Recipe
- 12 eggs
- 3 tbsp low- fat mayonnaise * I use Hellman's ½ the fat
- ½ tsp mustard
- ½ tsp sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp Ranch dressing * I use Lighthouse Homestyle Ranch (it's the best!)
- ¼ tsp dill
- ¼ tsp salt
- dash pepper
- 1 small finely chopped onion * The onion must be VERY finely chopped, especially if you are going to pipe it through a IM tip
- Boil eggs until cooked through (hard-boiled), then set in cold water for 15 minutes. ** See video in NOTES for how to make perfectly cooked eggs.
- Peel eggs and slice in half, lengthwise.
- Carefully remove yolk and place in separate bowl. Break up yolks with a fork.
- Then add mayonnaise, mustard, sugar, lemon juice, salt, dill, ranch dressing, pepper and finely chopped onion to bowl with yolks. Mix well.
- Fill a pastry bag fitted with a 1 M tip and pipe yolk mixture into egg whites, dividing evenly between all eggs. (See video in NOTES) Alternatively, use a spoon to scoop yolk mixture into centre of egg whites.
- Sprinkle with paprika
