Deviled Eggs, if prepared traditionally using a boiled egg, a cup of mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, and seasonings such as dill and paprika, is 93 calories for two halves.
Deviled eggs are traditionally prepared using 8 boiled eggs, 1/4 cup of mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, and seasonings such as dill and paprika.
The yolk constitutes most of the calories in deviled eggs. This is because the yolk is mostly composed of fat. The egg white on the other hand contains 7g of protein and has no fat.
If you are looking to cut back on your calorie intake even more, you could substitute the mayonnaise with a low-fat mayonnaise, or reduce the amount of regular mayonnaise by half and substituting the other half (2 tsp.) with water, which will make the yolks creamier. You could also lower the calories and still keep the flavor rich with low-calorie herbs and spices.
While deviled eggs are high in fat and calories, remember that you can slash the calories in half by consuming only one egg halve. Moderation is key!
