Give guests a blank slate on which to create their deviled egg masterpieces.

Set out a tray of plain deviled eggs, plus different toppings in ramekins or small bowls. The toppings need to be chopped, minced, or sliced to a small size that fits the top the egg.

Set the ramekins on plates to catch the spillage, and supply small spoons for scooping (we use espresso spoons). The guests should also have small cocktail plates on which to top their eggs.
Choose Your Toppings

Here’s a long list of options for the toppings. You can provide as many as you like.

  • Bacon
  • Cheese: crumbled blue cheese, pimiento cheese, shredded cheddar
  • Dairy: crème fraîche, sour cream
  • Ham cubes, shredded prosciutto
  • Seafood: anchovies, crab, salmon caviar or tobiko, smoked salmon

  • Asparagus, peas, radishees

  • Guacamole, hummus, tapenade
    Condiments & Seasonings

  • Chives
  • Garnishes: capers, fried garlic chips, frizzled onions, sliced olives, potato chips

    Piping Deviled Eggs With Fancy Tips

    Check out these tips from the cookbook, D’Lish Deviled Eggs: A Collection of Recipes from Creative to Classic.

    1. The easiest way to get smooth yolks is to mash them thoroughly with a fork. You could also use a whip attachment (ideal for bigger batches), a ricer if you want them really smooth, or a food processor.

    2. Spoon-filled deviled eggs will look laid back and rustic but not as nice. Eggs that have been filled with a piping bag (photo #3) are elegant.

    3. For piping, a number of different options are available:

  • Professional cake decorating bags come with different kinds of tips (photo #3).
  • Disposable plastic piping bags are available in the baking section of most grocery stores.
  • Or just use a plastic sandwich bag by simply cutting off the corner tip with scissors.
    4. If you do get pro pastry bags, the tip you pipe the filling with is largely an aesthetic choice, although some fillings are better suited to certain tip styles than others. Chunkier fillings are best piped through a large plain round tip, while smoother fillings look lovely when applied with a large star tip.
