Deviled eggs are just simply in a category of their own. I always say they're this 'worldly appetizer', because you can literally make them taste like they come from any region of the world. I mean, this article shows 50 different ways to make deviled eggs!
Classic deviled eggs are just wonderful, and naturally gluten-free if you prepare them correctly.

These are made with a twist, as you'll be adding classic dijon with a hint of horseradish. Then they're topped with cilantro leaves, which finish them off perfectly.
Now, deviled eggs are wicked to me. You know how some people just don't like eating them at all? And then there are others who absolutely adore them and just savor the taste? I'm neither of those. I'm in the addiction category. Those of you reading this, know who you are.
I could literally eat an entire plate of deviled eggs at any holiday party. Just snatch them and continue devouring. This classic deviled eggs recipe I made right after Easter and let's just say, I'm sorry. I know not what I do.
They were prepped and gone before the kids could continue admiring the colored egg shells. This was the first time I took those Easter eggs and had my way with them so soon. I usually let them sit on the counter for us to gaze at for a few days. Ya know?
Not this year. There was no will power. And it was done. And they were so good. And I did not feel guilty.
There are a few things that make these classic deviled eggs stand out:
- They're naturally gluten-free, if you're just taking about the egg part. So, use clean pots and water and lots of salt. Once it's time to make your filling mixture, be sure to stick with gluten-free ingredients. This way, at a party, you can serve these to all your guests and there is no questioning they will be gluten-free!
- You don't need mayonnaise, although I love it! In order to add some creaminess to your filling, you can incorporate a dollop of sour cream. It helps to neutralize the tanginess added to this dish. Mayonnaise can sometimes take away from the mustard flavor because of its fat content, so I prefer sour cream.
- Cilantro adds a depth of flavor to deviled eggs with mustard. I don't know what it is. But I love it. And I assure you, you will too.
