Do you have a ton of leftover eggs from the holiday weekend? Transform your hard-boiled eggs into some seriously delicious Sriracha Deviled Eggs! Topped with do chua, cilantro, sliced chilies, and a sprinkle of black sesames seeds, these are not your mother’s deviled eggs. These babies pack some punch! Shortly after I took the above photo, I turned my back (just for a second) to grab a dish. Let me preface this by saying, I have never seen my dog, Arlo, grab food off of the counter – not even when he was a puppy. So you can image my surprise when I turned around and I saw my dog… my giant freakin’ dog, with his paws up on the counter devouring all of the eggs I had just so careful shelled. I couldn’t believe it! Out of all of the things I’ve left on the counter (chicken, steak, juicy hamburgers) he never touched them. For whatever reason, my dog digs the eggs. I made more eggs, this time keeping a close eye on my dog/egg thief. I styled, plated, (ate one… yum!) and began to photograph them. As I was standing on my step stool, hovering over the Sriracha Deviled Eggs and looking through the veiwfinder of my camera, I saw a big black nose inching its way into view. Part of me wanted push his nose away, say ‘NO’, and look at him like he just about lost his mind. But then I thought… click.
Sriracha Deviled Eggs – Owner Tested, Dog Approved.
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoon Sriracha
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- do chua, several pieces slivered
- 1 tablespoon cilantro, roughly chopped
- ½ teaspoon black sesame seeds
- Slice the hard boiled eggs in-half, lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place in a dish. Using a fork, smash the yolks into a fine crumble. Add the mayo, mustard, Sriracha, and salt/pepper to taste. Mix well.
- Fill the sliced egg whites with the prepared yolk mixture. Top with a few slivers of do chua, sprinkle with a little cilantro, add a slice or two of the chili peppers, and sprinkle with black sesame seeds. Serve and enjoy!
Such a simple and delicious appetizer, and great way to use sriracha!
Thanks, Maggie. I always enjoy a little heat with egg dishes.
This is the fanciest deviled egg I’ve ever seen! Definitely not my mother’s! And anything with Sriracha has my vote!! Love it!
Thanks, Annie! Sriracha and eggs is like a match made in heaven 🙂

These are so attractive and if they were at a party I attended, I’d stand next to this plate. 🙂
Thanks, Maureen! 🙂

I love devilled eggs and it has become a tradition for me to make them every year on Easter Monday. These look fantastic with the pickled veg and the sriracha… I can hardly blame Arlo for wanting to steal them!
Thanks, Allie! The do chua really compliments the spicy Sriracha perfectly! I’m actually pretty surprised they weren’t too spicy for Arlo 😉

Spicy deviled eggs are my absolute favorite! These looks awesome. And I can’t believe your dog / egg stealer!!! What a stinker… At least he has good taste. 😉
He really is a stinker! But I love him anyway 😉 I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw that giant nose of his in my viewfinder.

Okay stahp. That last photo with Arlo’s little head in it is just too much cuteness. These eggs look absolutely amazing. Your toppings are perfect. And lessbehonest adding sriracha to anything is just a done deal. My family likes to make fun of me and say I’d put it on my cereal…….. let’s just say frosted flakes has never tasted better.
Lol! I think you and I have the same thoughts on Sriracha. I’m actually eating some leftover Spaghetti Pizza with Sriracha as I write this 😛

Well. . .Arlo is giving your eggs the best endorsement. . .if they are good enough for Arlo. . .then they are good enough for me. I hope you tossed him another egg for being such a great model. I love the flavors you added to these eggs. Can’t wait to give them a try.
HA! Right?! I know it’s my dog, and he would eat just about anything… but I still felt complimented 😉
You had me at Sriracha! I love these eggs! So cute and delicious!
Lol, gotta love Sriracha 😉 Thanks so much, Mira!

Kathleen, I’m making egg salad as we speak. . but totally pinning this for later!! I love deviled eggs like this. . with a fabulous twist! I’ve made deviled eggs with gochujang and kimchi! 😛 Happy Monday!!
Omg! Deviled eggs with gochujang and kimchi sounds AMAZING! Like the do chua, I bet the kimchi compliments the heat with a fabulous tang. I’m definitely trying that one!
Culinary Ginger says
I love a good spicy deviled egg I think it matches well with the creamy yolk. Lovely recipe.
Thanks, Janette! I’m always a big fan of a little spicy kick 😉
Thao @ In Good Flavor says
Ha Ha!! So freaking cute! I think Arlo should make an appearance in every post 🙂 The egg looks so good! I really like the color the yolk takes on from Sriracha.
Ha! That’s not a bad idea, Thao! I like it! I’ll see what I can do to include him more 😉
