Classic deviled egg flavors are remixed into an easy dip that will satisfy all kinds of eaters with less stress and mess for you in the kitchen! Originally posted April 2019. Last updated January 2023.
My deviled egg recipe without the mess is always a hit at gatherings because it provides spot-on deviled eggs taste and texture AND fits a variety of diets. It's also a hit in the kitchen because I get to skip the fussy presentation. Let's get into the delicious details.
What does it taste like?
The short answer is that it tastes like deviled eggs. Creamy, tangy, and very slightly sweet & sour from pickle relish. We like our deviled eggs with a little spice so there's some heat (to taste) and smokiness from the garnishes.
I am an unabashed deviled egg fiend--have been since I was a little bitty girl--so I'm particular about the flavors. They have to be just right. This deviled egg dip is spot on but also customizable in case your tastes are different. One departure from tradition is that I make this egg dip with cream cheese. It helps with the texture since we're using whole eggs here instead of just yolks.

How To Serve Deviled Egg Dip
As far as what to eat with deviled egg dip, just spoon it into a bowl and pick whatever dippers you like. Let me give you a few options that work really well:
Fancy deviled egg garnishes: To complete the look, garnish the dip with chopped chive, paprika, and cayenne. Please do not skip this step. In addition to providing the traditional deviled egg aesthetic, these garnishes add important flavor points.
Firstly, it wouldn't be southern without a little kick, right? That is where the cayenne comes in. I also add a healthy dose of hot sauce before blending everything together. Chive adds some brightness and the paprika adds a touch of sweet pepperiness. I love to serve this dip for Easter brunch.
How to use up extra egg dip?
Use this as a deviled egg spread on your favorite sandwiches, too! Trust me, it's bomb. The texture is similar to hummus and it easily adds multiple layers of flavor to a plain ol' turkey sandwich or even a burger.
I hope you enjoy this simple starter idea with friends and family very soon. And sharing is caring so be sure to pin this keto appetizer for later and follow me over on Pinterest. Thanks for reading!
