These buffalo blue cheese deviled eggs are one of my favorite ways to make and serve them.
Why are deviled eggs called deviled eggs?
Deviled eggs are called deviled eggs because back in the eighteenth century, any food that had a lot of seasonings or spice was considered “of the devil” because of all the heat of the flavors. It could mean spicy hot or just a lot of seasonings combined.
Eventually the name stuck to this egg dish, and now it means these stuffed hard boiled eggs.

How to make easy to peel hard boiled eggs:
The most perfect, easy to peel hard boiled eggs are Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs. If you haven’t tried them yet, they cook perfect eggs every single time.
If you don’t have an instant pot, try this Air Fryer Hard Boiled Eggs recipe.
Pro Tip: All the best results use ice cold water to put the eggs in once they have cooked. This is an important step because by giving the eggs an ice bath, you shock the shell which makes it easier to peel.
It also stops cooking the yolks so your eggs aren’t overdone!

How long do buffalo blue cheese deviled eggs last in the fridge?
While these buffalo blue cheese deviled eggs can last a few days in the fridge, they have the best flavors and texture when eaten the same day you put them together. That being said, I do like to make a batch and eat them myself all week long as lunch or snack.

Can you freeze buffalo blue cheese deviled eggs?
No you cannot freeze this buffalo blue cheese deviled eggs recipe. While you could scoop out the filling and freeze it in a freezer safe container, hard-boiled eggs do not freeze well.
