Deviled eggs are always popular at any gathering, but the same old flavorings can get old. Change things up a bit with these 50 mix-ins and toppings for deviled eggs.
Growing up in the south, I don't think I can remember any gathering where there wasn't at least one platter of deviled eggs. I still love them to this day and our Southern Style Deviled Eggs Recipe is always a hit.
When Is National Deviled Egg Day?
A lot of other people apparently love deviled eggs too as there is even a National Deviled Egg Day on November 2nd! However, with as often as I make deviled eggs, sometimes the same old flavors get a bit boring after a while.
That's why I decided to brainstorm and come up with these 50 mix-ins and toppings for deviled eggs. It's amazing how you can change up the flavor and even make fancier deviled eggs just with an extra ingredient or two.
Be sure to chop up any mix-ins finely so they can be evenly distributed without any huge chunks.

Just read your article.
Try mixing in jugo sauce by maggi a swiss company. Its like soy sauce on steroids. Reminiscent of marmite, the yeast (?) based product fermented into a thick pudding with the strong taste of beef stock or boulliabaisse. I love these strong flavors and jugo sauce mixed with mayo into the hardened egg yoke is great. FWIW.
