How far in Advance can I make Deviled Eggs
Because I assume that your next question is going to be how far in advance can I make deviled eggs before taking them with you for a party or celebration OR perhaps to help you plan out Deviled eggs as a part of your weekly meal prep plan.

How long will deviled eggs keep in the refrigerator
How long can deviled eggs stay in the fridge? According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), hard-cooked eggs of any kind can be stored in the refrigerator for up to seven days, either left in their shells or peeled. However, since deviled eggs are prepared and often contain a filling made with mayonnaise or greek yogurt, they are best consumed within four to five days, if not sooner.
Another important thing to remember that the cooked eggs should be refrigerated within two hours of being boiled and refrigerated cooked eggs (aka deviled eggs) shouldn’t be left out at room temperature for more than two hours before the risk of bad bacteria taking over!
