How To Make Ranch Deviled Eggs Recipe
Most deviled eggs recipes follow the same pattern: slice your eggs, make your yolk mixture, fill the egg whites, done!
Start this ranch deviled eggs recipe by slicing the eggs in half and placing the yolks in a small bowl. Add your ranch dressing, green onion, and salt and pepper. Mix, spoon into a piping bag and add bag into your egg whites.
Drizzle barbecue sauce over top and sprinkle on chunks of bacon.
I guarantee you’ve heard of all the ingredients and steps in this recipe, so no surprises here! But let’s go over a few things just to be sure you get the most crowd-pleasing of all deviled eggs!
Ranch dressing is the star — but what about the barbecue sauce? Let’s investigate!
- Ranch Dressing: Start with 1/4 cup of ranch and add more as needed. If you want a lighter option, grab the seasoning packs of Ranch and mix up your own dressing with low-fat yogurt!
- Barbecue Sauce: Get fancy! There are so many fun varieties of barbecue sauce at the grocery store — try something new and fun to see what flavor combinations you can get with your eggs!
- Hardboiled Eggs: Don’t want to have to boil and peel eggs? Trader Joe’s (and other retailers) sells prepackaged hardboiled eggs — fully peeled! Skip the mess and stress and go straight to the fun!
- Bacon: This is the part of the dish that makes everyone sit up and take notice! I love using a really nice, high-end bacon for the quality and taste — try anything by Boar’s Head to get some good bites!
Tools to Make
The tools to make this dish are the same as you’d use for any deviled eggs recipe:
- A knife for cutting the eggs
- A bowl for mixing your filling
- A plate to hold your egg whites
- A piping bag for the filling
Easy enough, right?
How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?
Once fully assembled, you can store your ranch deviled eggs in the fridge for up to one week. This is one dish that loves chilly temps, so don’t let it sit out in the heat of a summer party for too long!
Can You Freeze This?
Unfortunately, no. Deviled eggs do weird things in freezer temps, so either gobble all these down before that one-week fridge mark or give out the leftovers to your party guests!
Make Ahead Tips
Well, I already mentioned my best time-saving hack: prepackaged hardboiled eggs! This is really the best thing you can do to speed up the cooking process.
With barbecue as a prominent ingredient in this recipe, it’s only fair that we eat these with a proper barbecue feast, right?
Whip up some of my downright delicious beer brats as a main dish. Serve with fluffy buns and sautéd onions for a truly summertime meal!
And of course, you gotta have something to wash it all down with — and what’s better than my peach moonshine? Homemade and refreshing, it’s the perfect thing to wrap together any summer meal!
