Much like Egg Salad, Deviled Eggs have been something I avoided due to egg-y smell and mysterious ingredients. Let’s be honest, it is the mayonnaise. But Tomato Jam Deviled Eggs are different and here is why.
Tomato Jam Deviled Eggs use sweet tomato jam with tangy horseradish in a devilishly creamy deviled egg filling. Top with chives and serve!
If there were a Deviled Egg season, it would be now, when families everywhere are trying to figure out how to not let those dozens of dyed Easter eggs go to waste. Tomato Jam Deviled Eggs are so simple that you could whip them up following the traditional Sunday morning egg hunt, taking them from basket to table in just 30 minutes.
Growing up and into adulthood I hated mayonnaise. I’m not sure why, but I did. Who can hate a condiment made with eggs and oil, really? I did.
Turns out I do like mayo, but only when it is a homemade mayonnaise. Have you ever made your own? It literally takes minutes with a blender or food processor.
Homemade mayonnaise is so thick and creamy. A velvety condiment that will add loads of flavor and texture to any meal. So now for things like Tomato Jam Deviled Eggs, I do eat them, but only with my own mayo.
The addition of horseradish and tomato jam balances acidity with sweet and savory, making for a tantalizing bite. For any Deviled Egg recipe, one must make sure they start with The Key to Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs for the traditional method of boiling or if you have an Instant Pot, check out my Instant Pot Hard Boiled Egg Guide.
If you like our Tomato Jam Deviled Eggs, you might also like these:
- Cut hard boiled eggs in half and carefully remove creamy yellow yolks to a mixing bowl. Using a fork, break apart to a paste. If eggs or overcooked you might have more of a crumbled consistency rather than a paste.
- Add horseradish mustard through mayonnaise, blend until creamy. I prefer to use my stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment to achieve a smooth mixture.
- Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe mixture into each egg half in a circular fashion.
- Top with a dollop of tomato jam and sprinkle of snipped chives.

You can substitute other types of mustard if you do not want to purchase horseradish mustard, you can use a mild flavored stone ground mustard with a teaspoon of prepared horseradish.
