Learn our 6 simple secrets for perfect, velvety deviled eggs.

Deviled eggs are perfect as appetizers for party or a side dish for potlucks and picnics. As popular as these two-bite appetizers are, they’re not typically healthy. Classic deviled-egg recipes are loaded with fat and calories. Our healthier version of deviled eggs has about two-thirds of the calories of a classic recipe, half the total fat and about 25% less cholesterol and sodium. Although making deviled eggs is pretty straightforward, it is definitely possible to mess them up. It’s easy to add too much salt by accident. Other mistakes: way too much mustard or no mustard at all or (gag) broken eggshell in the filling. When done right, they’re smooth and creamy and the filling has the perfect balance of tangy and salty flavors. But if you follow these rules for making perfect deviled eggs it’s not hard to make them delicious and healthier too. How? Here are 6 simple secrets for perfect, velvety deviled eggs.
