These easy keto deviled eggs have the creamy filling of a spinach artichoke dip making this the ultimate appetiser. A colourful addition to any low carb party platter.
Deviled eggs are an easy appetiser for picnics, holidays, parties or simply a delicious snack. You can have them plain, but I like to play around with different deviled egg ideas. As I love the combination of a spinach and artichoke, especially in a dip, it seemed to be the perfect deviled egg filling. The spinach gives a colourful splash of green too.
The only problem with deviled eggs is that when you get the filling right, they are highly addictive. Is it just me, but if I am making scrambled eggs, 3 eggs is all I can eat. However, if they are deviled eggs, I can’t stop and could happily eat 20 without breaking a sweat. At 30, I have to be moved away from the buffet table with the Chief Taster looking on in shame.
Since the filling for these keto deviled eggs have artichokes in them, I found the mixture too chunky to be artfully piped and had to lose the piping nozzle in order to pipe them. Despite the lack of piping art, the spinach and artichoke filling was delicious. I served them with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and a dash of sumac. If you have any leftover filling, you had a tasty sandwich filling.
WHAT ARE KETO DEVILED EGGS?
A hardboiled egg is cut in half and the yolk is removed leaving a cavity in the egg white. The yolk is mixed with mayonnaise and other flavours into a rich paste. The egg whites are then filled with this mixture, often piped for a decorative filling. The classic filling for a deviled egg is mayonnaise, mustard and vinegar.
EASY PEEL HARD BOILED EGGS
To make boiled eggs that easily peel I place the eggs in water, bring it to the boil for about 10 minutes. I then place the eggs in icy water for 5 minutes. I either then place the eggs in the empty saucepan and shake them vigorous to get the shells cracking or roll them on the counter top to peel. My only problem with rolling the hard boiled eggs on the counter top is that my dogs will come running and beg for the eggs. They absolutely love hard boiled eggs and are one of their favourite treats.
CAN YOU MAKE DEVILED EGGS AHEAD OF TIME
Deviled eggs can be made up to 2 days in advance if you keep the whites and yolk filling separate. Store the egg yolk filling in an airtight container with plastic wrap covering the surface to stop it drying. Keep the egg whites in an airtight container. The filling can be piped into the egg whites when you are ready to serve them.
