Deviled eggs… into a dip? I know, I was also slightly hesitant to give this one a try, but when I saw people raving about it, I knew I had to make my own version.

If you’re a deviled egg lover who also loves a good high protein dip, you’ll love this one. It was first made popular by this creator.

Plus, it’s this super easy dip is also really forgiving- even if you don’t get the exact measurements right, it’s still delicious. If you like more mustard, you can add it. Or more dill, more salt, etc etc. You get the idea.

One thing that is missing for me when it comes to a regular deviled egg is the texture. I love that you can pair this with fresh vegetables or crackers for a nice crunch to counteract the creaminess.

It’s not a replacement for deviled eggs, but it’s a fun dip option! Serve as a delicious appetizer, a quick snack, or pair with veggies and crackers for an easy healthy meal.

This recipe makes four servings and packs 20g of protein per serving!

Let’s get into what you need for this twist on the popular party favorite.

Ingredients for cottage cheese deviled egg dip on a countertop with labels.

Ingredients

  • Cottage cheese: Cottage cheese is the key ingredient, of course. Any kind will work, especially since it’s being blended up anyway, but Good Culture is my favorite. I like to use full-fat for max creaminess.
  • Hard boiled eggs: To keep things easy and avoid leftover egg whites we’re using the whole hard-boiled eggs, but some people like to throw in extra egg yolks. 
  • Yellow mustard and dijon mustard: If you’re not a fan of dijon you can leave it out, but a combination of both mustards is delicious in my opinion.
  • Fresh dill: If you don’t have fresh dill you can also use dried dill, or you can throw in a pickle! 
  • Spices: Paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend on high until dip is creamy. Taste test and add more salt, pepper, garlic powder or mustard to taste. Enjoy with fresh veggies, crackers, pita chips or tortilla chips!

You can store this for a couple of days in the fridge in an airtight container, but I think it’s best served fresh.

Variations

  • Spicy deviled egg dip: Add chili flakes, your favorite hot sauce, or buffalo sauce!
  • Dill pickle deviled egg dip: Take it to the next level by throwing in a whole pickle to add some tang and dill pickle flavor.
  • Top with bacon crumbles, chives and/or green onions before serving.
  • Serve with a platter of finger foods like finger sandwiches and fresh veggies like bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots and some crackers.
  • Top with everything but the bagel seasoning.
  • Add some sour cream or Greek yogurt to add more tanginess.
