How Long To Boil Eggs for Deviled Eggs

When it comes to preparing the eggs for your deviled eggs recipes, you’ll want to make sure they are hard boiled. To do this, you’ll cover them with water in a pot and bring them to a boil. As soon as they begin to boil, immediately remove them from the heat and let them sit in the pot for 10-12 minutes. Then drain the water and run cold water over them until they are cooled. Here’s a post we wrote on How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs. You can also do them in the Instant Pot using our handy How to Boil Eggs in the Instant Pot guide.

Why Are They Called Deviled Eggs?

The term “Deviled” comes from the 19th century when referring to spicy food such as eggs prepared with mustard or black pepper, especially when mixed in with the yolk.

In the mid-west and southern states, they are called “stuffed eggs”, “salad eggs”, and “dressed eggs”.
