Chef Kathy Casey’s micro-focused cookbook, D’lish Deviled Eggs, is just so much fun! The recipes are unique, creative, and tasty, and by the time you are done leafing through it, you will be inspired to make plate fulls of these tasty beauties.
Today I’m sharing a slightly-adapted version of one of my favorite recipes from Kathy’s cookbook: Chili Ginger Deviled Eggs.

How to Fill Deviled Eggs
You can use a spoon to fill the eggs, but I prefer to use a disposable pastry bag. This allows me to prepare everything ahead of time and pipe the filling in right before serving.
How to Hard Boil Eggs for Deviled Eggs
It seems as though there are nearly as many ways to hard-boil eggs as there are cooks to make them. I prefer to use the Boil-n-Steep method, but you do whatever works best for you.
Boil & Steep Method for Hard-boiling Eggs
- Fill cooking pot about 1/2 full of cold water.
- Place eggs in pot. Water should come to at least an inch of water above the eggs.
- Bring water to a rolling boil over medium-high heat, uncovered.
- When the water is boiling, cover the pot and remove from heat.
- Let eggs steep in hot water for 10-12 minutes.
- Immediately transfer to an ice bath. Allow eggs to cool in ice water bath before peeling.
Ginger-Chili Deviled Eggs
- 12 hard-boiled eggs
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup Miracle Whip
- 2 tsp. sambal oelek*
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
- 1/4 tsp salt
- cilantro leaves
- cucumber fans
- Peel and rinse eggs. Slice them lengthwise and put the yolks into a medium-size bowl.
- Smash the yolks with a fork. You can also run them through a ricer, or use a small mixer for the whole process.
- Add the remaining ingredients to the smashed yolks and mix well to combine. The mixture should be quite smooth. Refrigerate filling until you are ready to fill the egg white halves.
- Pipe or spoon filling into egg white halves. Garnish with a tiny sprig of cilantro and a little cucumber fan. Serve immediately.
