  • Make sure to chop the kimchi finely so that it blends into the filling well.
  • Because of the kimchi in the recipe, you cannot pipe the filling onto these eggs.
  • Use your best judgment on the amount of cayenne pepper to use. Taste test a bit before adding the filling into the boiled eggs
  • The kind and brand of kimchi you purchase will affect the flavor of the eggs.
  • You can use Greek Yogurt in place of the paleo mayonnaise, but it will make the filling thicker. Likewise, you’ll want to add a bit more of the spices.
  • Make sure to store the eggs in a deviled egg container
  • Makes 12 deviled eggs, two deviled eggs are one serving
