How To Make Deviled Eggs With Capers Recipe
Three simple steps stand between you and the perfect deviled eggs with capers recipe!
Hard boil your eggs (see below for tricks!). Once cooled and peeled, cut your eggs in half and put the yolks in a bowl. Let your whites sit on a plate.
Add the remaining ingredients to the yolks and mix well.
Put the yolk mixture in a bag and snip off one corner to make a piping bag. Pipe the yolk mixture into your egg whites and garnish with chopped parsley.
Hate hard boiling eggs? Not sure about the anchovies? I got you with all my best secrets to make sure your deviled eggs with capers recipe turns out as mouthwateringly delicious as I know it should be!
Simple ingredients, but some of these are a bit unusual. Let me walk you through them!
- Hard-Boiled Eggs: Ah, the star of the dish, but the most fickle one! Thankfully, the internet is bursting with helpful videos like this one from The Kitchn — the most important thing you’ll need is a timer! There’s one way to make perfect hard boiled eggs… air fryer hard boiled eggs is perfect for yah!
- Shells: Peeling your hard-boiled eggs is so often a pain! But if you add a little vinegar to your boiling water beforehand, the shells will break down and be super easy to peel.
- Anchovy Paste: This is, by far, the most unusual ingredient! But trust me when I say it makes the whole bite sensational. You don’t get any fishy taste at all — just a deep, savory umami flavor.
- Capers: Fun fact: capers are actually preserved flower buds! They come off the plant quite bitter, but the salty preservation brine mellows out the flavor and complements the anchovy paste in a truly satisfying way. If you haven’t cooked with capers before, start now!

How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?
Eggs, like their chicken counterparts, are fickle when it comes to storage. The wrong location could spell disaster for bacteria — and your stomach! — so be sure to follow one rule when all else fails:
If in doubt, refrigerate!
Deviled eggs especially love the cool temps of the fridge. Store it, sealed, for up to a week.
Can You Freeze This?
Unfortunately, no. Deviled eggs don’t do well in the freezer — the low low temps do funky things to the filling and boiled eggs. Opt to eat them chilled instead!
Make Ahead Tips
You can boil the eggs ahead of time — up to five days! Then, when you’re ready, crack and peel, whip up the filling, and serve. Easy peasy!
