Thanksgiving Appetizers: Fried Deviled Eggs

Fried deviled eggs you say?


Yes! You know us folks down south like to fry practically anything. So why not put a fried spin on your old deviled egg recipe?


Yes really! Just give it a try and trust me it’ll be a repeat appetizer at your family gatherings or parties.



First you’ll need about a dozen eggs (depending on the size of your party maybe two dozen). People boil their eggs in various ways, you can boil in salt water for a few minutes, or boil water remove pot from heat and just let the eggs sit in the water.  Or you can CLICK HERE TO SEE HOW TO GET HARD BOILED EGGS FROM PUTTING THEM IN THE OVEN!

While your eggs are in the process of becoming hard boiled lets prepare to fry them. I prefer to use peanut oil, its best for frying. While you’re waiting for the oil to heat to around 350F. Get three separate small bowls. In each bowl you will have:

  1. flour + salt + pepper + any other seasoning of your choice
  2. 2 eggs beaten
  3. Japanese panko bread crumbs

Once you have finished boiling your eggs and they have cooled. Remove the egg shells and cut the eggs in half (lengthwise).  Take the yolks and place them in a separate bowl (you will use this for the filling).

Dip the hard boiled egg whites into the flour, beaten egg mixture, and lastly the panko bread crumbs. Place in the oil for frying.  I only had to fry my eggs for 1-2 minutes. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Once all the eggs have been fried its time to move on to making the filling!

Again, everyone makes their filling different. I never measure how much I use I just eyeball it.  In a bowl with the hard boiled egg yolks, add 1/4 cup mayo ( I use Kraft Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper pictured below),


sweet relish, both yellow mustard AND Dijon mustard, pink salt, white pepper, chopped chives or parsley, some people like hot sauce (optional). I’m not a fan so I leave it out. Mix all together until smooth and you can spoon it into the fried eggs or take a piping bag and pipe the filling onto the eggs. You can sprinkle on some smoked paprika & garnish with the chopped chives and that’s it.


What’s your favorite Thanksgiving appetizer?
