How to make deviled eggs with olives?
In a bowl or in a food processor (if you are after a smoother texture), combine cooked egg yolks, mayonnaise, black pepper, paprika, finely chopped olives (if using a food processor, there is no need for chopping them) and salted butter.
Butter makes the deviled egg mixture smoother, so trust me, it does work here! Actually, you could use it for almost any other deviled eggs recipe.

If you are wondering how to make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs, try cooking them in Instant Pot! Follow my simple recipe and you will learn how to hard boil eggs so they peel easily.
A few extra tips:
- If your eggs are smaller, reduce the pressure-cooking time to 4 minutes to avoid over-cooking them.
- The easiest way to transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice-cold water is with kitchen tongs.
- Ice-cold water helps stop the cooking process, but if you don’t have ice on hand, just place a bowl of water inside a freezer to make sure it’s really cool. However, with this egg cooking method, the eggs peel quite easily even without having them sit in ice-cold water.
How long do deviled eggs last?
If stored properly (in an airtight container/covered with plastic wrap in the fridge), they should last up to 2 days.
However, they may change their color or dry out, so it’s better to make them either before serving or read the instructions on how to make deviled eggs ahead.
How to make deviled eggs ahead?
The easiest way to do it is by prepping everything in advance, separately (boil and peel the eggs, keep the whites covered with plastic wrap or in a sealed container & prepare the filling and store it in the fridge).
Then, the following day (or later on), just put them together. Using a piping bag will definitely speed up the process, but to fill 12 egg halves with a spoon or fork only takes about 4-5 minutes, so you can decide what you use.

Deviled Eggs with Olives
- In a bowl, combine egg yolks with mayonnaise, butter, black pepper and olives. Mix until well combined (you can also do this in a food processor).
- Fill each egg white cavity with the mixture (you will use up all the mixture).
- Optional: Top with a slice of olive and a sprinkle of paprika/pepper.
- If using unsalted butter, you might need to add salt to the mixture. I recommend doing so after you have mixed all the ingredients together, then taste it and add only if needed as the olives are salty as well.
- Make sure you are using pitted olives. You can use stuffed or plain ones. Green olives work best in this deviled egg recipe.
