Keto blue cheese dressing

Can I use store bought blue cheese dressing in this recipe?

Of course! While I prefer to make my own homemade keto blue cheese dressing, you can use a store bought option.

Just be sure to check the ingredients list to make sure it’s keto friendly. Some brands add a lot of sugar and other additives that you may not want in your Buffalo deviled eggs.

🥚 How to make hard boiled eggs in an Instant Pot (pressure cooker)

I have found that the easiest way for me to get hard boiled eggs that are both easy to cook and peel is in a pressure cooker or Instant Pot. The pressure cooker creates a higher heat environment than what is possible on the stovetop, which results in evenly cooked eggs every time. Additionally, the shells slip off very easily after cooking in the pressure cooker – much easier than when boiled on the stovetop.

To cook hard boiled eggs in a pressure cooker, put them in the pot of a pressure cooker and add 3/4 cup of water.

Next, cook them on high pressure for 4 minutes and then release the steam. Carefully remove the cooked eggs and place them in a bowl of ice water for 3-5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the ice water, crack, and peel!

I rarely have problems with the egg whites sticking or breaking when I use this method, which saves a ton of prep time and stress.

And let me tell you I’ve gotten super stressed trying to peel eggs I’ve cooked the traditional way or other imaginative popular methods.

🔪 Instructions

In order to make low carb deviled eggs, boil the eggs using your preferred method. Then carefully peel the eggs and set them on a plate.

Next, slice the peeled hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise, and remove the egg yolks to a medium sized mixing bowl. Transfer the egg white halves back to the plate.

After that, to make the creamy egg mixture filling, mash the egg yolks with a fork or whisk, then stir in the mayonnaise, blue cheese dressing, hot sauce, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix together until everything is well combined in the bowl.

💭 Top tip

To make it easier and assure it’s perfectly smooth, I like to use a hand-held mixer to prepare the filling, but you can also do it by hand with a fork or whisk.

Then add in the chopped celery to the yolks mixture and stir well.

Now, taste test the egg filling mixture and adjust the seasoning as necessary adding more salt, pepper, or hot sauce as you prefer.

Next, using a spoon or piping bag, scoop or fill each egg white half with the yolk mixture.

Toppings

Lastly, sprinkle the filling of the half eggs with the crumbled blue cheese, paprika (optional), and sliced green onions for garnish. The toppings are optional so you can leave them plain, but they do make them colorful and tasty! I love the flavor the blue cheese adds!

Serve immediately to friends and take your own bite or store in the fridge for later.
