How long do Deviled Eggs keep in the refrigerator?
Since the shell is removed from cooked Deviled Eggs, they’re more susceptible to bacteria. They can be safely kept in the fridge and enjoyed up to 3-4 days after preparing.
Why do we call them Deviled Eggs?
The term deviled in regards to food goes back to the 18th Century! It refers to to zesty food prepared with mustard, pepper, and other foods mixed with the yellow egg yolk. Well, aren’t we fancy!?

Deviled Egg Recipe (Loaded Deviled Eggs!)
- 6 large eggs
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 3 strips bacon cooked crisp & crumbled
- 2 tablespoons chopped chives divided
- ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese divided
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
For steamed hard-boiled eggs (my preferred method):
- Place 1-2 cups water in the bottom of a double boiler, cover and bring to a boil. Place the eggs in the top of the double boiler and place on the top of the double boiler. Cover and boil the eggs 12-13 minutes. While the eggs steam, place 2 cups of ice in a large bowl and fill with cold water. After 12 minutes, transfer one egg to the ice water, break the eggshell and test the egg for doneness. If the egg isn't cooked through, cook an additional 1-2 minutes. When eggs are cooked, transfer them to the ice water, crack the eggshells, return to the ice water and let the eggs cool 5 minutes (the water will seep under the shell making them easier to peel). Peel the eggs and set aside.
For boiled hard-boiled eggs:
- Place eggs in a single layer, in the bottom, of a large saucepan. Cover the eggs by 1-inch of water and bring the water to a rolling boil. Place the lid on the pan, turn the heat to low and boil 1 more minute. Turn off the heat and let the eggs sit in the water 11 minutes. Again, test 1 egg for doneness. *Note: If you cook eggs too long, a green rim will appear around the yolk. The eggs would still be edible, but not as tender and pretty. When eggs are cooked, transfer them to the ice water, crack the eggshells, return to the ice water and let the eggs cool 5 minutes (the water will seep under the shell making them easier to peel). Peel the eggs and set aside.
- Cut the cooked eggs in half crosswise and place the yolks in a medium-size bowl. Trim a very thin slice off the bottom of each half of the egg whites so they can sit flat. Set aside.
- To the bowl with the egg yolks, add sour cream, 2/3rd crisped bacon, 1-tablespoon chopped chives and 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese. Salt & pepper to taste. Mix until well combined and fill each egg white with the yolk mixture. Top with reserved bacon, chives, cheddar cheese and drizzle with sour cream.
