Horseradish Deviled Eggs ~ Savory Simple ~ Appetizers ~ Paleo

A few weeks ago I shared details about my trip to New York City to tour some amazing test kitchens. It was an exciting day where I got to meet many industry experts and get a behind the scenes look at some of my favorite websites. I also got to spend time in one of my favorite cities, which is always a bonus. While visiting Bon Appetit headquarters we were treated to some simple yet flavorful treats, including these horseradish deviled eggs.

Horseradish Deviled Eggs ~ Savory Simple ~ Appetizers ~ Paleo

These are a really wonderful appetizer for summer parties. I always like serving deviled eggs because they’re fast to make, can be served at room temperature and are relatively healthy compared to many party appetizers. To prepare these in advance simply hold off on adding and broiling the breadcrumbs until right before your guests arrive. These will be a guaranteed hit!


Horseradish Deviled Eggs
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 24 deviled eggs
  • 12 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise (I used reduced fat)
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 3 tablespoons Italian style breadcrumbs
  1. To hard boil the eggs: bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Gently add the eggs and cook them for exactly 12 minutes, then place them directly into an ice bath until cool. Peel the eggs and slice them in half using a sharp knife. Scoop the egg yolks into a bowl.
  2. Preheat the broiler.
  3. Mash together the egg yolks, mayonnaise, horseradish, vinegar, mustard, garlic powder and cayenne. Season with salt to taste.
  4. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly over the eggs and place them under the broiler. Toast the breadcrumbs, watching carefully to make sure they don't burn. This will take 2-3 minutes.

    I love the breadcrumb addition!! I’ve never seen that on a deviled egg. The horseradish just makes this all the better.

  • Joanne @ Fifteen Spatulas

    I was a latebloomer with horseradish (tasting Arby’s horsey sauce when I was a child ruined me) but now I love it! I bet these deviled eggs are killer!

  • Nik@ABrownTable

    I am normally not a fan of deviled eggs but these sound wonderful, and they are what I will be making if I make deviled eggs. Thank you for posting this.

  • Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

    I love the spicy vinegary-ness (is that a word? heh) of these eggs. They look delicious enough for any cocktail party!

  • Eat Good 4 Life

    These look magnificent. The horseradish I bet gives these eggs a very distinct flavor. I have not made devil eggs in for ever but next time I do I will keep this in mind because devils eggs are always big hits at gatherings!

    I am in love with all things horseradish, especially these yummy eggs!! Adding to my 4th of July menu for sure!

  • Kirsten@FarmFreshFeasts

    Your photos are lovely, and it sounds like a great idea to add horseradish to deviled eggs.
    Did yours go sliding all over the place while moving from the counter to the broiler? For some reason my eggs are always slide-y until I get them into little devoted deviled egg plates.

  • Carla

    Funny – I’ve never made deviled eggs myself but have been known to gobble down most of the plate haha Horseradish is a favorite ingredient of mine, so consider this plate gone ;)
