Thanks to Pete & Gerry’s Organic Eggs for partnering with me on this recipe! I use these eggs regularly. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.
Deviled eggs have always looked like fancy food to me. They seem like such a high-class appetizer in my mind. Especially when the filling is perfectly piped back into the yolk crevice and has a perfect swirl (which mine do not).
I have never had deviled eggs before this recipe experiment, can you believe it? In 23 years I don’t recall ever having a deviled egg, or seeing one at a family party. Some foods just “run” in families and some don’t. Know what I mean?
This version is a play on the classic deviled egg. After researching some recipes I knew I had to bring some pizazz to a old-time favorite for many, and not just recreate the same dish.
I immediately dreamt up Buffalo Deviled Eggs. Because honestly, buffalo anything is always a hit! The Paleo Buffalo Chicken Cakes is the most popular recipe on my blog!
Since Thanksgiving came and went last week, it’s time to ease into Christmas mode. Well, ease or jump right in, as I do! I cannot wait to get up some tasty Christmas recipes! My favorite dessert from the GIH blog is my Grain Free Cherry Amaretto Cookies.
We decorated the house, got our Christmas tree, decorated it, and I’ve already watched several Christmas movies. I’m that kind of person (but that’s the best kind of person, right? 😉 ).
My point being these are a fabulous Christmas appetizer before dinner. They would also be delicious for Christmas morning breakfast or brunch! You may want to leave the bottle of hot sauce on the table for the avid heat lovers.
I used Pete & Gerry’s Organic Eggs. These are the ones you will find in my fridge any day! My family holds a BJ’s Wholesale Club membership and they have 18-packs of these eggs. That’s awesome for us because between breakfast and all the baking I do, we go through a lot of eggs.
Reasons I choose Pete & Gerry’s Organic Eggs:
- They never use any crazy GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides in the hens’ feed.
- They never give the hens antibiotics or hormones.
- They exceed organic standards by allowing access to the outdoors from their barns. These hens are not caged up!
- Unlike CAFO’s/factory farms, they don’t give the hens animal by-products from other slaughtered animals.
- The farms are inspected once a year or more by a third party organization with USDA-accredidation.
Making the best possible decisions when I buy food is really important to me. We vote with our dollars every time we make a purchase. Why not support the people raising good food who actually care about the health of their animals and of the consumer?

Makes 12 halves
- Hard boil 6 eggs. I covered the eggs in water in a saucepan, brought to a boil and removed after 8-9 minutes for yolks that were not completely hardened. Then I put them in an ice bath.
- Peel eggs and slice in half.
- Gently scoop out the yolks and add them to a plastic food storage bag.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and close the bag. Mix everything together by squeezing and moving the contents from the outside of the bag.
- Cut the tip off of one end of the bag to create a piping bag. Pipe the filling into each halve.
- Chop the chives finely and sprinkle on top.
* Get a mayo without toxic oils. Regular mayo is usually made with canola, vegetable, or soybean oil.
* For egg free, Sir Kensington’s makes an egg free avocado oil mayo.
