Have you ever opened the fridge only to stare into it and still feel like there is just nothing to snack on even though it is totally full? I’m sure it’s not just me. Healthy snacks that are convenient and filling and aren’t like $15 for a box of 4 are hard to figure out. I put a ban on junk food in our house not just because it is bad for you, but because I cannot control myself around a bag of chips. But after I’ve demolished a whole bag of Doritos I’m usually still hungry.
Let me introduce you to your new favorite snack. That’s right, deviled eggs are the between meal times, after dinner, I just need to get food in my belly snack that you need in your life. I make a batch on Sunday evening and have them ready to go on a tray in the fridge. I usually have sliced bell peppers, broccoli, and carrots ready to go also. It makes it so much easier to make a healthy choice when I don’t have to do any work.
How to make creamy deviled eggs:
The best way I have found to make your deviled eggs super creamy and smooth is to blitz them in the food processor. It’s a little extra clean-up but it makes the texture really smooth and plus they look fancier when you’ve pilled the filling back into the egg white.
If you don’t have a food processor available don’t worry! Use a fork to thoroughly mash and break up all of the egg yolks before adding the additional ingredients. I have also found that it is much easier to mash an egg that has been hard boiled so don’t try to shorten the cooking time as a slightly soft yolk won’t mash as well.
How to make Everything but the Bagel Seasoning:
If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby or don’t have the time to order it online, I have included a recipe to make your own Everything but the Bagel Seasoning. Honestly, I would recommend purchasing a pre-made mix as you are going to want to put it on everything anyway and it can get a little pricey to by all of the ingredients separately.
The recipe calls for white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, minced garlic, minced onion, and poppy seeds. If you can’t get access to black sesame seeds it’s okay to leave them out. It won’t dramatically effect the overall flavor, but it won’t look quite as pretty with the color contrast.
I used a cheap piping kit from my local grocery store to add the filling back into the white in a swirl. You can purchase one here. It’s totally not necessary, but looks a little bit fancy if you are bringing them to a party or a having them for a holiday occasion!

Place eggs in a medium sized pot and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil. Once boiling place lid on pot and turn off heat. Let eggs sit, covered for 10 minutes.
While eggs are boiling prepare a bowl of ice water. Once 10 minutes are up immediately drop eggs into ice water to cool.
Once eggs are cool to the touch, peel under cool running water. Slice in half lengthwise.
Using your fingers or a spoon remove the yolk and place in the bowl of a food processor or a medium bowl if mixing by hand.
Thoroughly mash yolks by either pulsing in the food processor or smashing with a fork. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well combined and smooth.
If using homemade seasoning, mix all ingredients together and use as directed in the recipe.
Using a spoon or a piping tip, add yolk mixture back to the egg whites. Sprinkle each half with 1/4 tsp of everything seasoning.
Store in a covered container in the fridge for up to 1 week!
While you can make your own seasoning unless you already have the ingredients on hand, I would suggest purchasing a pre-made everything bagel seasoning. You can purchase the one I use here!
