These vegan deviled potatoes are creamy bite-sized potatoes that work great as an egg-free appetizer or a side dish. If you are craving that eggy flavor of eggs, use these little potatoes as a substitute for deviled eggs. They have a surprisingly similar flavor to traditional deviled eggs.
Serve them for Easter dinner, as a holiday side dish or appetizer, or even in packed lunches.

🧾 Ingredients and substitutions
- Potatoes - About 12 small potatoes the size of an egg
- Vegan Mayo - Any type of vegan mayo will work. I like to use my homemade vegan mayo.
- Plant-Based Milk - Any type will work like soy milk, almond milk, or oat milk. Just be sure to use plain!
- Nutritional Yeast - this is optional, yet gives it a nice flavor. (Nutritional yeast is a yellow powder that can be found in most health food stores).
- Mustard - for flavor. Any yellow mustard will work.
- Garlic Powder - for flavor.
- Turmeric - for a nice deviled egg-like color.
- Salt - for flavor. Use black salt if you want a more egg-like flavor.
- Paprika - to garnish.
🥄 How to make deviled potatoes
Step 1 - Preheat the oven to 350° F (176° C).
Step 2 - Wash the potatoes well and poke a small hole in each with a fork.
Step 3 - Bake for 35 minutes or until soft when poked with a fork.
Step 4 - Take them out of the oven and let them cool until you can hold them.
Step 5 - Cut in half and scoop out the insides with a spoon leaving a little bit of potato to hold its form.
Step 6 - Put all the ingredients except potato skins into a mixing bowl.
Step 7 - Mix with a fork or potato masher until smooth and creamy. (Don't over mix)!
Step 8 - Spoon or pipe the mixture back into the potato skins and garnish with a dash of paprika.
For some variation, you can make these into twice-baked potatoes by using this same recipe omitting the mustard and using margarine instead of mayo. You can serve this version hot by rewarming them in the oven.
You can also refill the potatoes with Tofu Egg Salad for a truly eggy flavor and texture.
Serve deviled potatoes in a pretty egg dish with some flowers for a beautiful presentation. You can dress them up a little by using a piping bag to refill the potatoes or just spoon them back in and sprinkle them with a little garnish.
