How To Make Fried Deviled Eggs (Lazy Dog Copycat)

These Lazy Dog-style fried deviled eggs offer a crunchy twist to the classic dish! They're coated with panko & topped with creamy filling.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 35 mins
Total: 45 mins


  • 8 large eggs, divided
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3⁄4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • chives, finely chopped, for garnish
  • smoked paprika, for garnish


  1. Place 6 eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Set pan over medium-high heat and bring water to a boil. Turn off heat, cover pan with a lid, and let sit for 11 minutes. Drain, rinse eggs under cold water, and peel.
  2. Halve eggs lengthwise and scoop out yolks into a medium bowl. Add mayonnaise, sour cream, hot sauce, and Dijon mustard to bowl, then mash yolks with the back of a fork and stir until mixture is smooth.

  3. Season egg yolk mixture with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate while frying eggs.

  4. Place flour, remaining eggs, and panko into 3 separate shallow bowls. Add 1 teaspoon water to eggs and whisk with a fork to combine. Add garlic powder to bowl with flour and stir to combine. Dredge each egg white first in flour, then egg, then panko, and place on a plate.
  5. Add about 3-inch oil to a large heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Heat oil to 350 degrees F, then gently drop breaded egg whites into oil and fry for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. Remove, drain on a paper-towel lined plate and season with salt.

  6. Fill fried egg whites with yolk mixture and garnish with chives and paprika.

  7. Serve and enjoy!
