Sour Cream and Onion Deviled Eggs



Here are two things I love, married.

Deviled Eggs.  My mom used to make these for summer parties when I was young.  I always loved them.

Sour Cream and Onion.  I have always had a thing for Sour Cream and Onion Chips.   So much, that I have also made a Sour Cream and Onion Shepherds Pie and Sour Cream and Onion Baked Crispy Chicken on this blog.

Usually, deviled eggs would call for mayonnaise.   These don’t have any mayonnaise, just sour cream.   You could make these healthier by using Greek Yogurt too.

This week my local grocery store had eggs for .69 cents a carton.  I decided that this was the week I would try these.

There is one simple thing you have to follow for tasty deviled eggs.   You need to follow the correct directions for boiled eggs.  I have done this wrong too many times and ended up with eggs that were underdone or overdone.   Here is the simple formula for hard-boiled eggs.

  1. Bring water to a boil
  2. Add eggs
  3. boil for 10-11 minutes
  4. rinse with cold water after you remove them from the boiling water.  ( This makes them easy to peel)

Sour Cream and Onion Deviled Eggs  ( Makes 12 deviled eggs)


Six eggs

Two tablespoons of sour cream

Four green onions- chopped

One teaspoon of onion powder

dash of sea salt

Method:  Hard boil your eggs.  Bring water to a rolling boil and cook eggs for 10-11 minutes. Remove from water and rinse the eggs with cold water.  Peel eggs.  Cut each egg in half and remove the yolks.  Place the yolks in a bowl.  Mix the yolks with sour cream, chopped green onions, onion powder, and sea salt.  Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, place the mixture back in the eggs.


These were soooo good.  Better than a regular deviled egg, I promise.   If you like this recipe, then you might also want to try my Sriracha Deviled Eggs
