Buffalo Deviled Eggs

Buffalo Deviled Egg close up

Maybe it’s the Buffalonian in me, but these Buffalo Deviled Eggs are my favorite deviled eggs that I’ve ever eaten. I love wing sauce and blue cheese dressing, but wow, they’re incredible in deviled eggs. I know all the blue cheese haters are going to ask, so yes, you can use ranch dressing. Just know that as a Buffalo native, it pains me to agree to that!

I see fun twists on deviled eggs on a lot of hip restaurant menus these days, so with Easter coming I thought I’d try a variation of my own. If you have a surplus of hard-boiled eggs after the holiday next weekend, you need to try this. These Buffalo Deviled Eggs have just the right amount of spice from the wing sauce and paprika, and the filling is rich and creamy with a tang from the egg yolks and blue cheese dressing. I garnished mine with strips of celery and carrot (a Buffalo wing’s partners in crime), but you can leave yours bare if you like. Each of these Buffalo Deviled Eggs has just 48 calories with ZERO carbs or 0 WW Freestyle SmartPoints (though a 2-3 piece serving has 1 SP), making them a healthy, low carb snack you’ll love.

The recipe below outlines my own tried-and-true method of hard-boiling eggs, but if you have a preferred method, feel free to use your own. On my stove, this way gives me perfect yellow hard cooked centers at 12 minutes resting, but I left a range since everyone’s stoves are slightly different. If you want to hard-boil the whole dozen eggs, you can always use half for these Buffalo Deviled Eggs and the other half for my Mom’s Easy Egg Salad or classic Deviled Eggs recipes!

Buffalo Deviled Eggs

These Buffalo Deviled Eggs are a healthy, low carb snack bursting with spicy, creamy Buffalo flavor Just 48 calories or 0 WW Freestyle SmartPoints each!

Yield: 12 pieces

Ingredients:

  • 6 raw large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Buffalo wing sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot Wing Sauce)
  • 2 tablespoons blue cheese dressing
  • ¼ teaspoon Paprika
  • Optional: strips of celery and carrot (I shaved them off using a vegetable peeler)

Directions:

  1. To hard boil the eggs, place the raw eggs at the bottom of a large pot. Pour water in the pot until the water is 1-2 inches over the top of the eggs. Place the pot on the stovetop uncovered and turn the burner to high heat. Bring the water in the pot to a boil. When the water comes to a full boil, cover the pot with a lid and turn off the heat to the burner. Leave the pot on the burner, covered, for 11-13 minutes.
  2. While the eggs sit in the covered pot, fill a mixing bowl ¾ way with ice water. When the time is up on the eggs, use a slotted spoon to remove them from the pot and transfer them to the bowl of ice water to stop them from cooking. Leave them in the bowl of ice water for a few minutes until fully cold.
  3. Peel the eggs under cold running water (I’ve found it’s much easier). Slice the eggs in half lengthwise and scoop the yolks out into a mixing bowl. Use a fork to mash the yolks as much as you can. I usually add a little splash of water to the mashed egg yolks and mash again to get them smooth. Add the wing sauce and blue cheese dressing and stir together until well combined and smooth. Spoon or pipe this filling back into the hollows of the egg whites. Sprinkle paprika over the tops of the eggs and if using, top with the celery and carrot garnish.

  1. Oh, those sound so good! I wondered how to make a hard boiled egg good without mayo. Plain ones are just to dry tasting to me. Trying this for sure! Thanks.

  2. I’ve been making Buffalo-Style Stuffed Eggs for years and would never dream of using “roach” dressing. Can’t stand the stuff. My recipe is slightly different in that it contains minced celery, crumbled blue cheese, Frank’s Hot Sauce to taste (not wing sauce), and just enough low-fat mayonnaise to hold it all together. I am definitely going to try your version as the combination sounds delicious. Thanks you much for your great recipes.

  3. These look delicious! I found a yogurt based blue cheese dressing made by Bolthouse and have been using that for the past few months because I love blue cheese! When I put your recipe into the WW app’s recipe builder using that dressing, keeping all amounts the same, 5 servings was 0 SP! I can eat all 6 eggs (or 12 servings) for only 1 SP…if I really had to! Can’t wait to try!!!

  4. Made these for Easter dinner today and everyone loved them. (We did add a bit more hot sauce as we like spicy.) We love deviled eggs and now we can eat them without guilt. Thank you Emily for another great recipe!

  5. I’m glad I found this web site, I couldn’t find any knowledge on this matter prior to. Also, operate a site and if you are ever interested in doing some visitor writing for me if possible feel free to let me know, I’m always looking for people to check out my web site.

  6. What brand of Blue Cheese dressing did you use? Also was it fat free..light or full fat? Thank-you!
