These Cajun Deviled Eggs put a fun and spicy twist on this classic recipe. Red bell peppers and cajun spices team make these hors d’oeuvres an appetizer to remember!
My grandma has had a deviled egg recipe for as long as I can remember. Although she passed away a couple of years ago, I love that her memory can live on every time I bring her classic recipe to a party, pitch-in or holiday feast.
But sometimes, it is fun to take tradition and add a little modern flair to it. I’m sure my grandma would approve! A while ago, we published this fun recipe for Bloody Mary Deviled Eggs. They were a huge hit, so we thought we’d come up with another recipe!
Spicy Eggs? We Love Them!
My husband is famous for putting a TON of hot sauce on his eggs. He loves spicy scrambled eggs, spicy fried eggs and spicy omelettes. So, I’m assuming he would love a spicy deviled egg! Eggs go great with a little bit of heat (or, for my husband A LOT of heat). This Cajun Deviled Egg recipe has just the right amount of heat for me. Perfectly creamy, spicy yolk mixture is filled into their egg whites. The heat doesn’t have an overpowering taste, but it definitely gives this dish a little kick!
Can You Make Hard Boiled Eggs In An Instant Pot!
Yep! In fact, ever since I got my Instant Pot about 3 years ago, making eggs in my pressure cooker has been my favorite way to cook them. They always come out perfectly cooked and they are so EASY to peel after you place eggs in cold water bath. So, if you don’t want to boil your eggs anymore, please check out my recipe to learn this super easy way to make Hard Boiled Eggs in your Instant Pot.
Can You Make Deviled Eggs Ahead of Time?
Sure! In fact, I like making mine a couple hours before I serve them to let them sit and firm up in the refrigerator for a while. I certainly wouldn’t make them DAYS ahead of time, but the night before would be fine.
