When spring rolls around, I start getting a hankering for some good deviled eggs. I’m not sure exactly why that is, but I absolutely love them. I guess they remind me of picnics and cookouts…and even church potlucks. You can’t have a good potluck without some deviled eggs, can you?

Even though I love them, I had never made them…I know, it’s just wrong, isn’t it?¬†One of the reasons that I haven’t made them is because one of the main ingredients is mayonnaise, and of course store-bought mayo is full of soybean oil, which is primarily GMO and so I really try to avoid it! So anything soy is a real no-no in my house because a girl has to have her standards when it comes to food!

So I finally found some cold-pressed avocado oil and decided to make some homemade mayonnaise! That recipe was successful and allowed me to make some deviled eggs that are tasty, and don’t have any questionable ingredients!

By the way, one of the absolute best ways to make hard-boiled eggs is in the Instant Pot. Seriously easy! And my eggs come out perfect every single time! My friends and I love these so much that we make a batch pretty much whenever we get together. They are just so yummy! These are perfect for picnics, cookouts, potlucks, or just because!
