Is Mayonaise good for Keto?

If you are on a keto diet, yes Mayonnaise is a great way to add more fat into your diet! So you can now rejoice! Just pay attention to the label and look at the ingredients to see if there are any sugar added. You should be able to find mayo with about 0-1 g of sugar. For this Keto Deviled Eggs recipe, I used avocado oil mayo.

Can you have Boiled eggs on keto?

Eggs are high in protein and low in carbs. In fact, they are known as one of the staple foods to have while on a keto diet. They are a great way to add protein to your diet and this Keto Deviled eggs will be a game-changer for you because you now have a different way to eat boiled eggs! One boiled egg has about 1g of carbs and anywhere between 4-6g of protein!

How do you boil eggs so they peel easily?

For the boiled eggs to use in this keto deviled eggs recipe, bring water to boil and add the eggs in. Let them boil for about 12 minutes, remove and place in an ice bath for about 5 minutes. Crack and roll eggs on a countertop and carefully peel. These should peel easily and the yolk should not be too hard and just perfect to use for a deviled eggs recipe.

Deviled Eggs with Bacon:

Adding some cooked bacon to this recipe is perfectly ok! I simply don’t cook with bacon because we don’t eat it. But if you like bacon and are looking for a deviled eggs recipe with bacon in it feel free to add it to this recipe. It will still be keto-friendly.

    Want perfect peel EVERY TIME? Let eggs sit out for about 2 hours. then steam them in a steamer basket for 11 minutes. then off heat, lid still on, for 5 minutes. then immediately transfer to a cold water bath..

  2. Gypsy Staar says

    Boil your water first. Then add eggs for 13 minutes. Remove immediately and pour out water and put in cold water and ice. Keeps the yolks nice and yellow and makes them easy to peel.

  3. Gloria White says

    This is not KETO, it contains sugar… KETO diet has no sugar. Where did your sugar come from? I just made deviled eggs with salt, pepper, mayo (no sugar), yellow mustard (no sugar). No garnish. Is the sugar in the garnish?

    • Brett says

      Natural sugars are a thing. Keto isn’t 0 sugar, it’s low carb. If that was the case berries like raspberries wouldn’t be considered keto. musrard does have natural sugar in it. They can say it’s 0 carbs on the label because they usually list the serving size as 1tsp, same goes for most mayo. Even 0 sugar added mayo will have some carbs and sugar. Even eggs have a small amount of carbs and sugar. It all adds up when they go into a single recipe.

    Added hint – after your eggs have been in a cold bath for 3-4 minutes, crack/roll your eggs and put them back into fresh cold water for 7-10 more minutes. Peeling will be a BREEZE.

    I have never heard of putting the eggs into the boiling water nor have I ever boiled for 12 minutes. I put my eggs in cool water, bring to a boil for one minute. Then, take off the heating element, place a lid over eggs, let set for 10 minutes. Then, pour off hot water and refill with cold water. After cooling run cool water over the egg as you are peeling it! This has worked best for me and I have tried every way.

      I cooked the eggs perfectly in the pressure cooker. You need the trivet that hopefully came with your hot pot. Add 1 cup water and your eggs. I cooked 12 with no problem. Set on HI pressure 4:00 mins with a quick release. Then I removed them to an ice bath.
      I’ve tried to make deviled eggs in the past but not with out my husband giving them a down vote. But hallelujah! your Recipe was a hit with the only substitution of yellow mustard, He’s loving them.

      • Linda says

        I also enjoy using my pressure cooker for hard boil eggs. So easy to peel after an ice water bath

    Eggs are high in protein and low in crabs.

    Are crabs part of the recipe or is that a typo?
