Can you make deviled eggs the day before?


Make Ahead: You can make deviled eggs up to 2 days in advance. You will need to keep the egg whites and the yokes separate in an air tight container. You can make the filling and keep in a plastic bag, but make sure you remove all air from the bag.

What is a good substitute for mayo in deviled eggs?

You can replace the mayonnaise with a perfect substitute: sour cream! Sour cream provides the same creaminess and tanginess in the filling, making it an easy replacement. You can also try other products of a similar taste and texture, like plain yogurt. 


  • Insert eggs into your instant pot,

  • For the 8 qt manual pressure for 10 min

  • Then instant release.

  • Place in cold water until you can handle them,

  • Then peel. Cut in half, and place cooked yokes into another bowl.

  • Add 1/4 cup mayonnaise salad dressing, and mix well!

  • I mean, of the point to very little lumps.

  • Then, sprinkle Greek Seasoning over tops, (or Season Salt.) to taste.



So simple yet so delicious!
