How to Store Deviled Eggs 

If you have any leftover deviled eggs on hand, here’s how to store them.

First off, deviled eggs should not be left out more than two hours. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container. This is to avoid the eggs from absorbing any other flavors from inside the fridge. You also don’t want the eggs to dry out. 

I like to put a piece of paper folded towel under the eggs to avoid them from sliding or getting too moist. 

Avoid stacking the eggs. to maintain the integrity of the presentation. 

How Long To Store Deviled Eggs 

Once refrigerated properly, any remaining eggs should be used within 2-3 days. 

Ingredients in Cajun Shrimp in Deviled Eggs 

hard-boiled eggs – soft boiled eggs won’t do in this case. You need both the egg yolks and egg whites to be nice and firm. 

mayonnaise – I use an avocado based mayo for this.

Dijon mustard – Adds a bit of zip 

Cajun or creole seasoning – you can’t call it “Cajun” without adding some Cajun flavor. 

hot sauce -Use your favorite hot sauce, Experiment with quantities and brands to suit your taste. 

olive oil – to sauté the fresh shrimp 

chives – for garnish and additional flavor 

jalapeno – adds a final pop of flavor 

lemon wedges – for garnish
