Meal Prep and Storage

  • How to Prep Ahead: You can prepare deviled eggs up to 2 days in advance. The egg whites and yolk filling must be stored in separate containers. Wrap each of the egg whites with a small piece of plastic wrap to keep them soft. Store the filling in a plastic bag with as much of the air squeezed out of it as possible to maintain its freshness. Pipe the filling into the eggs whites, and garnish on the day of serving.
  • How to Store: Deviled eggs will keep well in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2-3 days. Since eggs are a somewhat hazardous food, do not eat them after 72 hours of making them.
  • How to Freeze: It is not recommended to freeze deviled eggs.
