Horseradish Deviled Eggs
Horseradish Deviled Eggs are a unique take on this classic recipe. They’ve got a delicious, savory kick that makes them the best ever appetizer for an Easter dinner or any other occasion!
Easter’s coming up at the time of writing, and I’m thinking about all the important questions, like…
Have you ever wondered why we eat eggs at Easter time? I mean, yes, there are eggs featured at Easter, but why did we get eggs involved, anyway? It seems like an empty spot in my education!! I’m sure I learned why at some point, but forgot.
Either way, because Easter is so egg-filled, I decided to pull out my deviled eggs to make for Easter dinner. They’re a fantastic appetizer that gets my whole family worked up for the main course! This year, however, I wanted to really do something unique, and so I’ll be making these horseradish deviled eggs instead.
Yes, horseradish! (It’s a type of root vegetable, just FYI!!) Horseradish sauce, believe it or not, is actually very similar to that vinegar-mustard mixture you’d usually use in deviled eggs. It also has some turmeric added, so the overall flavor of these unique deviled eggs – so good, y’all, so good.
If you want to twist up an old favorite, Horseradish Deviled Eggs are definitely the way to go. I hope you enjoy them!
Horseradish Deviled Eggs: Ingredients & Equipment
For this Horseradish Deviled Eggs recipe, you will need …
- eggs – you’ll need about twelve large ones for this recipe. Can’t have deviled eggs without them! At least, I don’t think there’s an alternative 😉
- mayonnaise, sour cream, Old Bay seasoning – the ingredients you’ll add to your deviled egg yolks. So savory and delicious! For the mayonnaise, make sure it’s full-fat.
- horseradish sauce – the final ingredient for your yolk. Horseradish sauce is in the mustard family and has vinegar and turmeric added so it’s perfect for deviled eggs!
- paprika and chives – your garnishes. They truly wrap the entire flavor up!
- salt and pepper – to taste. Use as much (or as little) as you need.
- pot – to boil your eggs.
- knife – for cutting the boiled eggs in half.
- small mixing bowl and rubber spatula/spoon – for mashing and mixing your egg yolk mixture.
- food processor or fork – for mashing the egg yolks.
- piping bag with tip – or a spoon! For filling the egg yolk mixture into the white part of the eggs.
- serving platter – to serve your eggs, although I suppose this is optional!!

You can use one if you want, and it’ll result in a super creamy filling. I’ve found just as much success mashing it up with a fork, though!
A few hours at room temperature when you’re ready to serve them. They’re really best eaten fresh! After that, you’ll want to store them in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Use an airtight container!
Absolutely. Since you can keep them in the fridge for a few days, feel free to refrigerate them until you need them. They won’t lose much flavor, though as I said, they’re best eaten fresh.
If your filling is watery, check if you used too much mayonnaise. Your filling may also be watery if you use fat-free mayonnaise.
