Are Deviled Eggs Keto?

Eggs – Choose large eggs that are about a week old (Yes! They will peel easier!) Here is a primer on how to make perfect hard-boiled eggs.
Filling – Mayo, mustard, and a little pickle juice to brighten the flavors are all that’s really needed for perfect keto deviled eggs. However, a dash of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice can be switched out for the pickle juice, if preferred. Spice it up with some salsa or sriracha if you like!
Toppings – Serve deviled eggs with a sprinkle of paprika, sliced green onions, bacon bits, sliced black olives, or little sprigs of fresh herbs like dill or thyme.
