If you’re looking for a way to use up hard boiled eggs, today’s recipe is for you. I love this Mediterranean egg salad for a quick healthy lunch, but if I’m hosting, these Mediterranean deviled eggs will definitely make an appearance! They also vanish within minutes because they are simply super delicious! 

Why I Love This Recipe

  • Delicious: The flavors are out of this world! The yolks are mixed with feta and dill, making this recipe a special treat. 
  • Easy: Homemade deviled eggs are easy to make and they’re always a favorite at parties and gatherings. This is a simple recipe that you can enjoy any time of the year. 
  • Healthy: Using Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise is what makes these Mediterranean deviled eggs light and a healthier alternative to the classic. 

Ingredients And Substitutions

To make Mediterranean deviled eggs you need boiled eggs, aleppo pepper, yogurt, feta and dill.
  • Eggs: Use large eggs for this recipe and boil them until the center is hard, full description is mentioned below. If you own an instant pot, check out my instant pot hard boiled eggs recipe
  • Greek yogurt: Instead of mayonnaise, we are using yogurt to make the filling. This would make the filling creamy and light. You can use non-dairy yogurt if preferred, just make sure it’s not flavored. 
  • Feta: To add flavor, we are using crumbled feta. It’s always best to purchase a block of feta and crumble as much as you need to preserve the moisture. 
  • Dill: Dill and feta go hand in hand, it adds freshness to the filling and is also visually appealing. 
  • Aleppo pepper: To add flavor and color, top the deviled eggs with some Aleppo pepper right before serving. You can also use crushed red pepper but keep in mind it’s hotter.

How To Make Hard Boiled Eggs For Deviled Eggs

  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Make sure the water is 1 inch above the eggs. 
  2. Place the saucepan over medium high heat and bring to a boil. When the water starts boiling, set a timer for 7 minutes. 
  3. After 7 minutes remove the eggs from the saucepan using a slotted spoon and place the in a bowl of ice water. 
  4. Let the eggs cool completely in ice water and then peel them. 

How To Make Deviled Eggs Mediterranean Style 

Mix the yolk with the yogurt, feta and spices and herbs. Spoon into the egg whites and serve.
  1. Prepare the eggs: Once the eggs are completely cool, peel them and slice them in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks and place them in a separate bowl. 
  2. Prepare the filling: Mash the yolks using a fork and mix in the Greek yogurt, crumbled feta and chopped dill. Taste and season with salt and pepper. For a smoother filling, blend the yolks with the cheese and yogurt in a food processor. 
  3. Fill the halves: Transfer the filling into the egg white halves. 
  4. Garnish: Top with some Aleppo pepper and fresh or dried dill. 

Tips For Making Deviled Eggs 

  • Make sure to give the eggs an ice bath before peeling them, this will stop the cooking process and make the eggs easy to peel.
  • You can make the hard boiled eggs up to 2 days in advance, but I don’t recommend making the deviled eggs the day before serving since they won’t be as fresh. 
  • Remove the yolks gently so the egg whites stay intact. 
  • Get creative! These Mediterranean deviled eggs are so versatile and you can add or remove ingredients as you please. Some of my favorite additions are olives, sun dried tomatoes and chopped parsley. 

Storage 

Store the leftovers in an airtight container (preferably glass) and refrigerate for up to 3 days. I don’t recommend freezing deviled eggs since the flavor and texture would change and the yolks would become grainy.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the easiest way to peel the eggs?

Leaving the eggs in ice water after boiling will make the peeling a lot easier. Another suggestion is to peel the eggs under running cold water.

Can I make deviled eggs ahead of time?

It’s possible to prepare them up to 2 days in advance, but you need to keep the prepared filling separate from the whites, in two separate containers. You can also boil and peel the eggs up to 2 days in advance. Keep the peeled eggs in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make the deviled eggs.

How many deviled eggs do I need per person?

This really depends on your party, how hungry the guests are and if you have other appetizers and snacks as well. I usually go for 2-3 deviled eggs per person, meaning 1 ½ egg per guest. 

What’s the best way to cut the eggs in half?

It’s best to use a sharp clean knife to cut the eggs in half. Clean the knife in between cuts to prevent the yolk smearing.
