Deviled Eggs

Sunday, March 13, 2016

I just love Deviled Eggs. I really make them all year long, however it's a must to repurpose Easter colored eggs that are leftover. We usually have leftover hard boiled eggs from Easter bread to use up also. Here is an easy Deviled egg recipe that literally fly off the plate when I make them. Everyone loves them.

The Filling is Addicting!



I seriously love the addicting filling of hard boiled deviled eggs.


The creamy filling with just a little spice makes all the difference in flavor.


Mom made these after Easter every year.

Tradition



The family loved them so much, we started making them for an appetizer almost every Sunday since we ran out of them every time we made them.


There is really nothing to the recipe. All you need is a few ingredients. Sometimes the keeping it simple is the best recipes. This one has been around for over 100 years and here we are still making it.


I love to repurposed Easter hard boiled eggs.


They are also so pretty with the coloring in them from the leftover dyed eggs. You may have read my natural dyed Easter eggs post in the past.



They're not only prettier but healthier since the dye is all natural. After Easter we always have leftover dyed Easter eggs and the kids love to help make these. They are so easy.

Fun to Make



When I first started making these I used a spoon to fill them and still do when I am in a hurry.


The zip lock bags work like a charm, but if you don't have one, I just use a teaspoon to filled them, messy looking but they sure still taste great!

Tip:



Add a plastic zip lock bag lining a coffee cup first, then spoon in the deviled egg mixture. Snip the end and fill your eggs with no mess!


I also set the eggs in cold water after boiling, then leave in the refrigerator until cold before peeling off the shells.

Other Options



I have had deviled eggs with sweet relish added to them for more of a sweet flavor.


I have also had them with chopped pieces of fried bacon another delicious addition.

Pretty Eggs



I love making the crackle eggs during the Easter Holiday. You can find the recipe HERE. These are so pretty when made into deviled eggs. The festive tray is loved by all my guests and they always want to know how to make them with all natural dyes.

Get Creative



Around Halloween, I get out the green food coloring, some pimento stuffed olives sliced and ketchup.


You know where I am going with this one right?


Yep gory eyeball appetizers, I make them every year.


We all really love deviled eggs, so get creative for the holiday, tint them, and decorate to the Holiday Theme!

Inexpensive



Eggs are pretty inexpensive and cut in half they go further than most appetizers to make.


The best thing about Easter egg and coloring them, is you get to make deviled eggs with the leftovers right?

They go quick!



I made around 12 eggs and they flew off the tables, honestly you need to make alot of these from the get go!


If you have leftovers, just chop them up in a bowl and save for egg salad sandwiches.


I promise you these deviled eggs won't go to waste.

  2. These look fantastic. At my parents house each Easter there was a contest to see who could eat the most eggs, deviled and/or colored. The winner got to brag until next Easter that they were the champ. Maybe with the cayenne in these eggs somebody besides my dad would have won.

  9. I have been so "out of touch" with my blog for the last two days...other than just uploading my new post. I love deviled eggs, and the recipe which is almost identical to mine, I did not bother to make deviled eggs this year. I did make plain hard boiled eggs, which I cut in half and served on a platter with other veggies...now, I feel guilty for not making the deviled eggs, after seeing your yummy eggs!
    I hope your Easter was a happy one, with lots of good food, and loving family!
    Hugs,

  11. Adding the different spices as well as the spicy mustard does amp up the flavor of deviled eggs. My mom always put sweet pickle vinegar in hers, but I do like the more savory route you went with these. Now I am ready to taste some of these spicy gems-yum!
