The Tangy Addition To Give Your Deviled Eggs A Flavor Boost
The modern deviled egg involves mixing egg yolks with mayonnaise and additional flavorings, with the most popular formula being mustard, salt and pepper, and a sprinkle of paprika. It’s a simple dish that is also infinitely customizable, and if you want a tangy twist on deviled eggs, try adding this popular condiment.
Ranch dressing is the most popular salad dressing in the US by a large margin, according to Statista, and while it makes an excellent dip for Buffalo wings, French fries, and veggies, ranch can be used in deviled eggs to great effect. You can use either dry ranch dressing mix or already-prepared dressing for a zesty twist.
A Betty Crocker recipe for deviled eggs calls for dry ranch dressing mix in packets, while a Food Network recipe from Melissa d’Arabian uses bottled dressing; homemade ranch makes things even better. You can even use the ranch in place of mayonnaise for ranch-centric eggs that are creamy, tangy, and lightly herbal.
