Buffalo-Style Deviled Eggs

Here is the scenario:  you were invited to a picnic or party months ago and the day of you remember you were supposed to bring an appetizer.  Crap!  You have two choices: take a shower or go to the store to pick up something.  Shower wins (I am sure the party guests will appreciate it!) and you raid your fridge.  
I don't know about you but there are a few items that always gather in my fridge and pantry.  Mayo and eggs because they are essential.  Hot sauce because my fiance is a hot sauce hoarder.  Crumbled blue cheese because you never use the whole tub.  AND lastly, celery seed because I bought it for a dish that only called for 1/8th teaspoon leaving me almost an entire bottle.  Combine all those and you have Buffalo-style Deviled Eggs!!  Is that not the perfect party or picnic appetizer?  
Now while this scenario has never happened to me personally... yet... I now have my go-to deviled egg dish just in case!!


  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce (I used Frank's)
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • About a teaspoon and half of celery seed
  • Salt & pepper

Cut eggs in half, place egg yolks in a mixing bowl and set egg whites aside.  Using a fork, mash the yolks.  Stir in mayonnaise and hot sauce.  Fold in blue cheese.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Spoon yolk mixture back into egg whites or pipe yolk mixture in using a pastry bag.  Top with a sprinkling of celery seed.  Enjoy!!


  1. Wendy See Wendy Do! I was just about to ask who invited you to a picnic in the middle of a Chicago winter!!!!! (er, early spring.) I'm so impressed at your ability to "whip these up" so quickly.

  2. Oh yum! I'm serving these today. I tasted the filling and it was wonderful!

  3. Found this via Pinterest! Thanks for the recipe! I am making these for our 4th of July picnic.

  4. These sound amazing. I'm going to try them out at our girls annual trailer trash bash!!
