These Loaded Deviled Eggs have all of the best parts of a loaded baked potato stuffed inside an egg white! Bacon, sour cream, chives, and the best part…these are keto friendly and the whole family will love these.
If you’ve been around here for long, you probably have picked up on my obsession with deviled eggs.
I mean, they really are the perfect low carb snack – they’re full of protein and fat, they’re naturally low carb, they keep you full, and they’re easy to make!
Normally, I like my classic deviled eggs to be really creamy and add a good amount of mayo to get that texture.
This time around, we skimped a bit on the sour cream to make the texture a bit drier. <– Sounds like a bad thing, but it was intentional!
Think about a baked potato…they’re not really runny or wet or super moist. They are starchy. We think the drier texture of the egg yolk mixture resembles a baked potato much more accurately than a wetter, creamier filling.
That said, feel free to add extra sour cream to reach your perfect level of deviled egg goodness! You really can’t mess up a deviled egg. 🙂
How to boil eggs:
Instant Pot Method: We use an Instant Pot for perfectly cooked eggs that peel like a dream. Just add the to the liner with one cup of water and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes.
Do a natural release for 5 minutes and then open the valve. Transfer the egg to an ice bath for 5 more minutes to stop the cooking.
Stove Top Method: Place the eggs in a sauce pan and add enough cold water to cover the eggs with 1 inch of water.
Place over medium heat and bring to a boil.
As soon as the water is boiling, remove from the heat and cover with a lid.
Let the eggs set for 15 minutes and then transfer to an ice bath to stop the cooking.
This method is easy enough, but you do have to pay to attention so that the eggs don’t overcook. You’ll also want to use older eggs as they peel easier than fresh eggs.
- Boiled Eggs: See above for cooking instructions or just buy the pre-cooked boiled eggs from the store. Either works!
- Sour Cream: Add more to make a creamier egg, if that’s your preference.
- Chives: You may swap in finely chopped green onions, if that’s what you have on hand.
- Cheddar: Freshly shredded sharp cheddar cheese is our preferred cheese, but pre-shredded works as well.
- Bacon: Fried and crumbled!
How To Make Loaded Deviled Eggs:
- Boil, Peel, and Slice: Boil the eggs using your preferred method, peel the eggs, and then slice them in half. Pop the yolks out into a mixing bowl and set the whites aside.
- Mix: Add all of the filling ingredients to the egg yolks and use a fork to mash it all together until smooth and creamy. Add additional salt to taste.
- Fill: Use a spoon or piping bag to fill the egg whites with the deviled egg filling.
- Garnish: Top with additional chives, bacon crumbles, and/or a drizzle of sour cream.
