Low-Carb Deviled Eggs With a (Spicy) Twist!

low carb deviled eggs recipe

Deviled eggs are timeless. Their creamy filling has made them a delicious low-carb staple at potlucks, picnics, and brunch tables for generations. The best part about deviled eggs is their versatility. A mayo and mustard base provides the perfect canvas for experimenting with unexpected spices and condiments. Our favorite unique deviled egg recipe features a touch of Sriracha, the hot sauce that has become a cult classic.  

Why Sriracha?

The spicy, garlicky bite of Sriracha combined with the tanginess of the mustard and mayo filling makes this unique deviled egg recipe really sing. Sriracha, a hot sauce originating from Thailand, is made from chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. 

The most popular Srirarcha sauce in the U.S. comes from a California-based company called Huy Fong. It’s often called “rooster sauce” because of the iconic label on its bottle. 

Fun Sriracha fact: the rooster on the Huy Fong bottle is in honor of the company’s founder, David Tran, a Vietnamese refugee who was born in the year of the rooster. For more Sriracha facts, check out the fun and fascinating 2013 documentary called “Sriracha” by Griffin Hammond.

Incorporating Sriracha into your unique deviled egg recipe will not only add a burst of flavor, but it also offers capsaicin, the element that gives peppers their heat. Capsaicin can boost metabolism, reduce inflammation, and even help relieve pain.

Health Benefits of Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are sometimes thought of as a guilty pleasure, but they’re actually quite healthy. They’re naturally low carb—our recipe has only three grams of carbs—so if you’re living with diabetes and watching your carb intake, deviled eggs can be a great choice for a snack or side dish. 

Eggs are full of protein—one large egg contains about six grams! Eggs provide all the essential amino acids that the body needs for building muscle. Plus, eggs are a rich source of healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids, key for reducing inflammation and improving heart health.
