Football Deviled Eggs

After last week’s game day spread post, I received so many requests for instructions on how I made my football deviled eggs, I just had to share my recipe!

This dish would be perfect for your upcoming Super Bowl party. Speaking of which, we’re less than two weeks away from the big game… so you should definitely get a few easy, football-themed snacks ready to enjoy. So that you can have something to do other than scream at the TV / be in awe of Beyoncé’s glory at the half-time show.

I love my football deviled egg recipe because a) the lil footballs are just so dang adorable and b) this dish was so delicious. I’m not a big over-mayo-er, so you know that these will be actually almost somewhat healthy. Almost.

I’m a glutton, what can I say?

Football Deviled Eggs

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Author: Glitter & Spice
Recipe Type: Appetizer, Snack
Cuisine: American, Southern, Party Food

Serves: 3-4


  • 6 eggs, hardboiled and shells removed
  • 1/4 cup of light mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons of yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of paprika
  • 3-4 chives, thinly sliced lengthwise


Halve the eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks. Place the egg whites on a plate, holes up.

In a large bowl, combine the yolks with the mayonnaise, mustard, black pepper, and paprika until smooth. Either spoon or use a pastry bag to pipe the yolk mixture into the centers of the egg whites.

Cut the chives so that you have 12 long pieces (about 1 inch) and 36 shorter pieces (about 1/3 inch). Place the long pieces lengthwise on the deviled eggs and then place the shorter pieces widthwise (these will be the laces).

Place your newly-made football deviled eggs in the refrigerator to cool before moving to a platter to serve.
