How to Make Christmas Deviled Eggs
Step One: Prepare Eggs
- Hands down, I prefer using my Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs, as it is the BEST way to hard boil eggs.
- If you don't have a pressure cooker, you can hard boil your eggs on the stove-top.
- Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water.
- Add a teaspoon of baking soda (my mom taught me this helps with peeling the shells and I seem to think it does).
- Bring to a rapid boil and then cover the pan with a lid.
- Turn OFF the heat, and set the timer for 12 minutes.
- After the 12 minutes have passed, place eggs in cold water to stop the cooking process.
Step Two: Prepare Filling
- Slice open eggs and scoop out the yolk into a large bowl.
- Mix the egg yolks with mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, and seasonings until smooth.
- Take out 2 tablespoons of deviled egg filling and set aside.
- Add 3-4 drops of natural green food coloring to the remaining egg filling.
Step Three: Pipe the Christmas Tree
- Place the green filling into a sandwich bag and cut a corner off the side --or use a piping bag fitted with a medium circle.
- Fill the egg white cavity with the green filling. Once the cavity is filled, go back and forth over the egg to create a triangle shape that will become the Christmas tree.
Step Four: Decorate the Christmas Tree
- Place the reserved yellow mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip, or plastic bag fitted with a star tip, and add a squeeze on the top of each tree, to create the star.
- To make ornaments, dollop out little dots of sriracha sauce.
- And for the base of the tree, use half a kalamata olive as the trunk.

I just found your recipe because I couldn't read the Christmas Tree Deviled Eggs recipe printed on my Farmhouse Eggs carton and I was hoping they'd posted the recipe on their website. I was googling "Christmas Tree Deviled Eggs" and your site came up. Imagine my surprise! Your ingredients and theirs are the exact same. I'm so glad because they didn't have the recipe posted on their website and with my eyesight I couldn't read all of it off the carton. Thanks!
Well I am SO glad you found me Karen! I hate hearing that our recipes are the same, as I have had this recipe for awhile on my site. BUT if it leads people like you to my site--well then awesome 🙂
OMG!! THESE are so insanely creative and adorable and I would totally eat 15 million, ha ha!
Aren't they so festive?!!

Kristen - these deviled eggs are genius! I gotta admit, I looked at the picture a fraction of a second before I read the title and did think - wow - what a delicious looking cookie - but, when I saw the title, I was more in awe! These Chrsitmas tree deviled eggs are a first for me! When you mentioned natural food coloring I did think that you used spinach - but glad you kept your family happy and didn't 🙂 These are a masterpiece!
LOL! Do you know how many people have asked me if they were cookies? I love that this fools people. And I am SO stocked for the natural food colorings. Colored cookies here we come. This could get dangerous!!
These look amazing, my family loves deviled eggs! I can add them to the Christmas table now!
Yes, your family will love this addition!
