How far in advance should you make deviled eggs?

You should prepare deviled eggs up to two days in advance. Then, make sure you cover them and place them in the fridge until they are ready to serve.

Are deviled eggs good for weight loss?

Yes, deviled eggs are good for weight loss as they contain lots of protein, which keeps you full.

Can you boil eggs the day before making deviled eggs?

Yes, you can boil the eggs the day before making deviled eggs. Just be sure to peel the eggs before storing them in the fridge. That's because it's much easier to peel them the day before, after cooling them than to wait until the next day.

How do you fix too much mayo in deviled eggs?

You can add more egg yolks to fix too much mayo in deviled eggs. If you've run out of egg yolks, you can add xanthan gum, breadcrumbs, or instant mashed potatoes instead.
