Deviled eggs are a party classic, and this version makes a great change of routine. The addition of horseradish to the filling gives the classic appetizer a spicy twist.

Horseradish is a white root vegetable from the same family as mustard and wasabi; it's typically finely grated and combined with vinegar and salt to make a spicy condiment. This recipe calls for prepared horseradish to keep things extra easy. You'll find a few varieties in the grocery store and you can use an "extra hot" horseradish for a stronger punch.

Whip up these horseradish deviled eggs in just minutes. They're an easy dish with tons of flavor—sure to disappear fast at your next gathering. Serve at Passover to mimic the bitter herb from the Seder plate, at a spring or Easter gathering, or a potluck.

  • To hard-boil the eggs, place them in a pot covered with cool water. Bring to a boil, remove from the heat, and let sit for 15 minutes before cooling and peeling.
  • You can also hard-boil eggs in the Instant Pot.
  • If you have fresh horseradish, you can make your own prepared sauce to use in this recipe.
  • For a smoother filling, use a mini food processor to blend the egg yolks with the remaining ingredients.

Recipe Variations

  • Adjust the horseradish and Dijon mustard to your preferred level of spice.
  • For a creamier mixture, add more mayo.

How to Store

  • The eggs can be hard-boiled up to a few days ahead of time and stored in the fridge. If you'd like to peel them, too, place the peeled eggs in a container of water and store in the fridge for up to a day ahead.
  • If possible, let the eggs chill for an hour before serving. You can make them up to four hours ahead stashed in the fridge.
  • Store leftover deviled eggs in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days. They are best eaten fresh.

Why Are My Boiled Eggs Hard To Peel?

As a general rule, the fresher the eggs, the harder they are to peel. Eggs that sit in your fridge for a little while tend to be easier to peel once they are hard-boiled. An abrupt rise and fall in heat can also cause the egg white to adhere to the shell, which is why many boiled egg recipes recommend you let the eggs sit in the water off the heat before peeling.

What Can You Use Instead of Vinegar in Deviled Eggs?

When substituting for white vinegar in recipes like deviled eggs, try using an equal amount of lemon juice (or to taste). It adds a similar acidic bite to the dish.
