Deviled eggs are a great appetizer for any occasion. They are easy to make, and they can be served with so many different things.
The most popular thing people serve them alongside is bacon or ham on the side of an Easter brunch table – but you could also have some fresh fruit like grapes if that’s your preference instead (or both!).
You might want something more savory though? Try serving these eggs at dinner time next week by adding in crumbled blue cheese into each egg white before filling it up again.
This will give everyone who eats one just what their taste buds were looking forward to: the saltiness from those little bits of blue-cheese mixed inside creamy goodness.
We have compiled 7 different recipes that will complement your Deviled eggs and make the perfect meal.
1 – Potato Chips
Potato chips are a classic pairing for deviled eggs. They’re salty and crunchy, which is the perfect contrast to creamy egg yolk filling with just enough spice from pepper or hot sauce on top.
A great way of serving these chips alongside your dish would be in small bowls. This will make it easier if you want people dipping their own into them as opposed to having one big bowl that everyone dips out at once.
You could also serve potato chip crumbles over each plate before adding an extra dollop onto every other bite they take;
Either option works well but we recommend doing both because why have only half when there’s so much more?
2 – Capers and Dill Pickles
Pickles are a great addition to any dish, but they’re especially good with deviled eggs.
Dill pickles are the perfect option if you want something that’s not too sweet and is also tangy. Capers offer an extra salty taste which goes well when mixed in!
We recommend using dill or sour cream as your base for these two options. Either way will work nicely so it just depends on what flavor profile suits best: sourness from one of them might be better suited than sweetness coming through another (or vice versa).
You can always mix both though because why have only half?
If anything this would give more variety without having many different bowls around at once making things look messy. And who doesn’t love some.
3 – Crumbled Bacon Bits
As mentioned above, bacon is a great option to go with these eggs. It’s salty, crispy, and will add some crunch as well.
The best thing about bacon bits though? They’re so easy – you can just buy them pre-made or make your own at home by frying up the pieces of meat in hot oil until they are nice and crisp (and then let it cool down before crumbling).
The only downside here would be that this might not work if other dishes were being served which also had pork on their menu.
But otherwise we think it’s perfect for adding something different without having too many ingredients around.
4 – Prosciutto Ham
There are so many eggs breakfast recipes that we can get creative with, but if you’re looking for a change of pace try using ham to add something new.
Not only does it have salt in it making everything taste better, but its texture is the same as bacon which ensures your eggs won’t be ruined.
The best thing about prosciutto ham? You can buy pre-made slices at the grocery store or you could even just make your own by frying up some pieces in hot oil until they are crispy (and then let they cool down before slicing).
The only downside here would be if there were other dishes being served on this menu for people who don’t eat pork. But otherwise, we think it’s perfect because not too many ingredients around when everyone already sat.
5 – Sauté Asparagus Spears
Asparagus is a vegetable that is often overlooked in the kitchen. It’s easy to find, it cooks quickly, and has an earthy flavor that pairs well with eggs.
To make this dish, all you need to do is sauté asparagus spears in a pan with olive oil and salt.
The best part about this dish? It’s healthy!
As long it doesn’t get overcooked, the vegetables will retain their nutrients while providing an extra boost of flavor for your eggs (and other dishes).
6 – Peas, Corn, or Broccoli Slaw
This is a great dish for those who are looking to add more vegetables to their diet. Peas, corn, or broccoli slaw is a delicious side that can be made in advance and stored until you need it.
You’ll just want about one cup of peas (or other vegetables) per person when serving this as an appetizer with eggs on the menu.
And if there’s any left over after your meal? It will keep well overnight so feel free to make extra without worry.
7 – Mayonnaise or Mustard for Dipping
Your deviled eggs will be even more delicious when you add a little mayonnaise or mustard to the mix.
The creamy texture of these condiments will make your eggs taste extra rich, and they’ll also help cut through any spice that might be in them.
If there are no spicy ingredients involved then feel free to use either one as desired.
But if it is included? You can’t go wrong with adding some Dijon for an added kick (or horseradish sauce).
To sum up, deviled eggs are a great dish to serve as an appetizer or even for lunch. They’re also easy and inexpensive, so you can make them in bulk without feeling like it’s too much work.
And don’t forget about these sides too!! They’re not only delicious additions.
They’ll help make sure everyone has enough food on their plate.
