Deviled eggs are the statement specialty when the Easter season comes, but you don’t have to serve them just like appetizers. They are actually amazing sides to many other dishes. You can make them spicy or mild, to fit any palate. Their creaminess fits best with some crispy textures to add a few layers and enhance the flavors. Whether you go for classic deviled eggs or some unusual filling, there is a dish to marry with them! So, here are some ideas on what to serve with deviled eggs.
Serve deviled eggs with waffles, oatmeal, pancakes, and sandwiches, but with a twist! When it comes to lunch they go well with meat like a beef roulade and turkey, or vegetables like potatoes and veggie fries. For dinner, choose chickpea or avocado salad, and everything mini for appetizers: burgers, pastries, and bruschettas!
I like to serve deviled eggs with my favorite soul food, just change a thing or two to suit each other. I prefer to pair them with salads for a lighter meal, but my family loves them with meat! Here is the whole list of my favorite plus ones to serve with deviled eggs!
What to Serve With Deviled Eggs for Breakfast?
All the classic breakfast ideas, but a bit adapted for you to enjoy with deviled eggs!
Spinach and Cheese Waffles
Spinach and ricotta cheese are a match made in heaven. These waffles are savory, but crispy outside and moist inside. This is a very healthy and nutritional meal, which pairs perfectly with deviled eggs. You can make them with all-purpose or whole-grain flour.
If you like them crispier and a bit tangy, you can add a handful of shredded cheddar cheese. You only need 10-ish minutes for this delicious meal, so there is no reason not to try it!
Turkey and Mozzarella Panini
Panini is a bit fancier version of a regular sandwich, whatsoever. What makes it special is homemade Italian bread, like ciabatta or michetta. This is a perfect layer of bread, especially if you crisp it up by toasting.
You can use deli turkey (preferably smoked) or leftovers of roasted turkey. Turkey and eggs are a classic sandwich combo, so it follows that it pairs wonderfully with deviled eggs, as well. You can add some mozzarella cheese, salad, and tomato slices to freshen up your panini. To make a panini more succulent, spread some pesto or any other sauce you fancy!
Surprisingly or not, oats, cheese, and eggs are the winning combo! Spice it up with some cheddar cheese, salsa dressing, and vinegar for a touch of acidity. Arrange your deviled eggs on top of the oatmeal and devour these flavors!
Pancakes don’t always need to be sweet, as the savory ones are as good! You can dice some bacon in a buttermilk-based batter, or just crisp some bacon strips and pour the batter over them. The second option has more flavor, though, as cooked bacon adds up to crunchiness and butteriness. This is a new way to serve probably the most classic breakfast ever: pancakes, bacon, and eggs!
This is an amazing all-veggie sandwich, flavorful but quick to make. Just roast some eggplant for the smoky relish, and add your favorite vegetables – tomato, cucumber, arugula, and so on. Fill your panini and enjoy!
What to Serve With Deviled Eggs for Appetizers?
Finger foods must look cute on the platter, but still, be delish!
Mini Burger Bites
Mini burgers are top-notch appetizers, along with deviled eggs. Those two go together very well, actually. They are easy to prepare, plus they look too cute on the plate. You just need everything mini to assemble your favorite burger – bun, patty, cherry tomato, and lettuce!
Puff Pastry Bites
Puff pastry bites are mega versatile, though. From filling to shaping, you can do anything you think of. Deviled eggs pair best with puffs topped with sausages, smoked salmon, mushrooms, or caramelized onions.
Zucchini Feta Rolls
Thinly sliced zucchini filled with feta cheese is a truly delish appetizer. You just need to grill them a bit and make skewers to serve easily. They can be filled with some other cheese or minced meat, but be careful here as they can be a bit messy because of the sauce.
Pickled Onions Bruschetta
Bruschettas are undoubtedly the easiest appetizer to make. Crisp up baguette slices then spread some cream cheese over, and top it with pickled onions. It’s a perfect balance of textures and flavors – crispy, creamy, sour, and aromatic.
Salad Spring Rolls
Spring rolls are superb salad bites. They are both fresh and spicy, full of flavor and texture. Slice all your fav veggies into fries-like pieces and wrap them in greeny leaves. Serve them with some dip for creaminess along with deviled eggs!
What Main Dish Goes Well With Deviled Eggs?
Here are both vegetarian and carnivore ideas to serve as the main dish with eggs as sides!
Potatoes are probably the most beloved ingredient there is and you can prepare them in a thousand ways. From potato salad to classic roasted, over hashbrowns, bacon-wrapped potatoes, and hasselbacks – each is just perfect to pair with deviled eggs. So, choose your fav and bon appetit!
Turkey meatballs have a melt-in-mouth texture when prepared well. They abound in flavors because of herbs you can add to them – dried or fresh. Along with deviled eggs, you’ll get an extra-rich protein meal. You can serve them with mashed potatoes and some freshly chopped salad and enjoy!
For a dash of German tradition, serve the beef roulade with the deviled eggs. Take long strips of lean beef and stuff them with condiments like pickles, onions, and bacon. The final touch is coating everything in mustard to add some spiciness.
Sweet Potato and Carrot Fries
Fries are always a good idea, but if you get bored with basic potato fries, try these sweet potato and carrot ones. You can deep fry, air fry, or bake them, and they will be as delicious and crunchy. They are suitable to add loads of spices and flavors, so it’s an ideal addition to creamy deviled eggs.
For all fish lovers, a tuna sandwich is an unskippable quick lunch! Toast some bread and fill it with tuna salad and your dressing of choice. Along with eggs, this makes a high-protein meal, yum!
What to Serve With Deviled Eggs for Dinner?
Keep it light for dinner and add loads of vegetables!
Spinach Salmon Roulade
Spinach roulade is a real spring delicacy. It’s a crust made of spinach mixed with some flour, and filled with cream cheese and smoked salmon. It is a super aromatic dish because of added herbs and parmesan, and it doesn’t go better than that!
This salad is a dash of Mediterranean everybody needs! Classic Greek flavors come from nutty chickpeas, feta, cucumber, tomato, and a handful of cilantro for a citrusy flavor. Don’t forget to drizzle it with extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice.
Cajun Chicken Wrap
This is hands up one of the best ways to prepare boring chicken breasts. A bold flavor comes from cajun seasoning which is a superstar of this meal. Don’t forget to add some sauteed vegetables to balance the spiciness!
Avocado Quinoa Salad
Avo quinoa salad is the closest thing to a perfect dinner! Dice your favorite vegetables, add some quinoa and avocado, but don’t skip drizzling it with some citrus juice. This is the path to a tasty, healthy, and multicolored bowl of fresh relish!
Veggie Noodle Soup
Japanese noodle soup is famous for the egg on top, so it must pair with deviled eggs impeccably. You can make it with veggies only or with chicken and pork. Mushrooms, spinach, and sweetcorn are the staple veggies here. Spice up this soul-food dish with ginger, chili, and soya sauce.
What Goes in the Middle of a Deviled Egg Platter?
When making platters, make sure to include as many colors as possible because they look eye-catching like that!
Any pickled vegetables go wonderfully with deviled eggs as they add the missing acidity. The best is to serve different veggies, as they look exquisite on the deviled eggs platter. Everything fits fantastically: cauliflower, pickles, carrots, olives, onion, radishes, beets, asparagus, and so on, the list is endless!
Veggie Cup Dip
It doesn’t go simpler than this, though. Just cut some of your favorite winter veggies into fries-like pieces and that’s it. Carrots, cucumber, celery, edamame, bell peppers, and more… The best thing is you need 0 cooking experience to make it!
Deli Meat and Cheese
Make a fusion between deviled eggs, deli meat, and cheese platters, and get one 5-star restaurant-worthy serving. Deviled eggs go best with smoked turkey, salmon, beef, and ham. When it comes to cheese, choose some tanginess to skyrocket the taste, like aged gouda, gorgonzola, or Colby-Jack.
Shrimps and deviled eggs are a top-tier combo. Whether they are just cooked, wrapped in bacon, or extra crisp from frying, anything is super delish. If you like them on the spicier side, go big on the seasoning, as it blends amazingly with deviled eggs.
Stuffed Cherry Peppers
Cherry peppers have both sweet and sour relish. When stuffed with cream and feta cheese they make a real delicacy. Plus thing is, they look sensational on the platter because they add that missing contrast!
