Bloody Mary Deviled Eggs

There’s not much in-between when it comes to deviled eggs: You either love them or you hate them. And the same can be said of the Bloody Mary, one of the most reviled and beloved brunch drinks of all time. Both of them are contentious because they have deeply savory flavors that are not for the faint of palate. But for fans of the umami-packed snacks, combining the two creates complete flavor magic.

Just like a glass of plain tomato juice, deviled eggs benefit from the addition of spices and seasonings like celery salt, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne and vinegar. And because some of the greatest Bloodies are beyond flashy, these deviled eggs get some panache thanks to a paprika “rim,” dill sprig and celery slice for authenticity. If you can manage to successfully peel a half dozen hard-boiled eggs, you’ll have no trouble with this simple, crowd-pleasing recipe.

  • Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg whites, evenly dispersing it throughout the 12 pieces.
