Fried Deviled Eggs

Teri & Jenny
Our Fried Deviled Eggs is an impressive snack or appetizer to serve your guests. We coated the egg whites in a panko mixture and then fried them. The result is a delicious crunchy twist on classic deviled eggs, and is always a crowd pleaser!

  • 12 large hardboiled eggs, peeled and halved lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 ½ cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup finely crushed butter crackers i.e. Ritz
  • thinly sliced chives for garnish
  • oil for frying


  • Carefully scoop egg yolks from the egg whites, into a mixing bowl and set whites aside.
  • Add mayonnaise, relish and mustard to yolks and lightly season with salt and pepper.
  • Mash together until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasonings, cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
  • Set up an assembly line with the egg whites, flour in a shallow baking dish, eggs in a mixing bowl, and the panko and crushed crackers mixed together in another shallow baking dish.
  • Dredge egg whites into the flour, eggs and finally the panko-cracker mixture, shaking off any excess after each addition. Repeat until all the egg whites have been breaded.
  • Fill a tall pot with 2 inches oil and preheat to 350˚F.
  • Carefully add egg whites to the pot, a few at a time, and fry on each side for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain fried whites onto a paper towel and lightly season with salt and pepper. Transfer whites to a cooling rack (to prevent them from getting soggy) and repeat until all have been fried.
  • Scoop about 1-2 tablespoons of the yolk mixture into each well(or scoop mixture into a piping bag and pipe into the wells).
  • Finish each egg with a sprinkle of chives and serve warm.
