Devilled eggs (or Deviled Eggs in America) are an easy vegetarian snack to have on hand over the Easter holidays, which, if you have hard boiled your eggs in advance, can be put together in a few minutes. Deliciously seasonal, and a welcome change from all that chocolate!
Hard boiled eggs in their shells can be kept in the fridge for about a week after cooking. To avoid confusion with fresh eggs, either put them in a tub or mark the shell with pencil. Gently roll the eggs around a few times during the first minute or so of cooking to get the yolks to settle in the middle, and once cooked plunge into a bowl of cold water to rapidly cool and to stop the outside of the yolk going grey.
Recipe: Easy Cheesy Chilli Devilled Eggs
- 4 hard boiled eggs
- 2 tbs mayonnaise
- 1 tbs chilli sauce
- 2 tbs finely grated cheddar cheese
- Salt and pepper to season
- Cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Pop out the yolks and put into a small bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Season to taste.
- Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg white halves.

These sound like a great twist on the classic devilled egg recipe :) This would go down a treat in our house!
We really enjoyed them for our lunch Nicole! And they make a welcome break from chocolate.

Oh I love the twist you put on deviled eggs. Cheese is always good, LOL.
I like your thinking Catherine. Cheese is always good!
Sounds extremely simple and yet wonderfully delicious. Hm, I never tried deviled eggs before. Why? Thank you for the recipe and arranging it on photo in a way, I felt attracted (rocket and …).
Devil(l)ed sounds so much more attractive than a stuffed egg. Although I think they should have another name for Eastertide.

Looks delicious and so cute with the toppers !
Dear Helen, I love the cheese in the filling.. These look so cute and sound delish! xo, Catherine
Thank you Catherine. It is nice to have something seasonal and egg themed by not sweet.
I love eggs, it’s a shame devilled ones have falled out of fashion, dismissed as something from the seventies… they’re so tasty!
So tasty as well as delicious, easy and frugal.

I love a devilled egg!
Simple, Fuss Free and delicious.
My mother used to do something similar at parties in the 70’s with curry I think – haven’t had a devilled egg since so really should right this wrong.The chilli/cheese combo looks lush! Love the Easter toppers, so cute, you can always rely on Waitrose for some really great merchandise:-)
They were delicious. if you used quail’s eggs you could serve at a cocktail party. But who actually has the time to peel a quail’s egg?
Wow, so original! What a great idea.They just scream picnic.
They are really cute Helen, and it’s nice to see some Easter specific treats that aren’t made of sugar!
I really am at sugar overload Janie. No more!
Cheese – did anyone mention cheese?!….YUM!
Always cheese Jan!
Ooh great tip for getting the yolk to stay centred – never heard that one before. Doing this with quail eggs would make for a fantastic party offering, although a bit fiddly to do perhaps.
Life is certainly too short to peel quails’ eggs!
I’m afraid I have to respectfully disagree about quails’ eggs. It’s fiddly but they are so damn cute.
Anytime you would like to come and peel quail’s eggs for me I’d be delighted.
OMG I love devilled eggs but had never thought of adding that other amazing ingredient cheese. Can’t wait to try these for picnic season.
Cheese is always good Jen!

My OH sat up and took notice of your devilled eggs Helen. The chilli sauce has got him excited.
I love sweet chili sauce!

What a great idea for a savoury Easter treat!
Lou, Eat Your Veg
I do love a devilled egg, and yours look scrumptious!
So simple and delicious. I can’t think why we do not eat them more often!
Super alternative to all of that chocolate at this time of year. I can’t eat hard boiled eggs, but I know my husband would adore these – I may make them for him instead of a chocolate treat.
I have hit chocolate overload. These are a great seasonal alternative.
I really didn’t know you could put boiled eggs in the fridge. I love boiled eggs so must try this out.
Maya, they will keep for a week. I love boiled eggs as a snack and it makes sense to cook a batch in one go.
