Making this deviled eggs without mayo recipe could NOT be easier. Check out my tips and tricks below!
These ingredients are staples, making this recipe easy to whip up anytime.
Eggs — Have you made hard boiled eggs?? It’s so easy and they make such handy and delicious no carb snacks! Want to really save some time? Try making your boiled eggs in an instant pot. Not only does it make cooking them faster and easier, but the shells also slide off effortlessly.
Dijon — This bold mustard is made with brown mustard seeds instead of traditional yellow seeds. This gives it a stronger, spicier flavor that gives a great punch in this deviled eggs without mayo recipe.
Smoked paprika — This is the slightly smokier version of traditional sweet paprika. It’s made from pimentos that have been smoked and dried, then finely ground. This mild spice adds a lot of character to soups, stews, and egg dishes.
After filling, store these hard-boiled eggs without mayo in the fridge, carefully! Lidded, hard-sided containers work best so that they don’t get squished.
Can You Freeze Them?
Technically, you can freeze the “deviled” part of the eggs until you are ready to use, but the whites would not keep for very long. If you want to be able to make them quickly, I recommend making the eggs ahead of time, which cuts down on the preparation time significantly.
Meal Prepping Tips
Packed with protein, these hard-boiled eggs without mayo make an amazing addition to any low carb meal or snack. Prep these out ahead of time to have 6 servings ready to go whenever you want to add 6 grams of carb-free protein to your meal!
