Got Easter Eggs? What will you do with yours?Submitted by The Granger on Sat, 03/30/2013 - 20:04
When I was a kid, the last thing I wanted to eat on Easter was a hard boiled egg. YUCK!
As the years rolled on, I would eat a hard boiled egg every now and then, and egg salad sandwiches weren't that bad (made with Best Foods/Hellman's Mayo). I would also make a potato and egg salad with them.
Then came deviled eggs. I get teased at Church because deviled eggs have become one of my specialties, and I bring deviled eggs to Chruch pot lucks. I never have any left overs. Matter of fact, I am told I make the best ever by many people.
I began getting creative with my deviled eggs and so here are a few ideas of mine that have been very successful, that I admit, I love my deviled eggs too.
Artichoke Deviled Eggs
For every yolk blend 1 1/2 teaspoons Artichoke Pesto (if you like, or love artichokes like I do, this is wonderful as it makes a fluffy, light and delicious deviled egg people fight for the last one.
Curried Deviled Eggs
If you like curry, blending 1 1/2 teaspoons of Korma Curry with each yolk, and sprinkling additional curry powder and galic salt is another big winner people fight over the last egg.
Quesadilla Deviled eggs
1 teaspoon green salsa per yolk, top with shredded pepper jack, a jalepeno slice, and place under a broiler to melt the cheese. Ole!
Asparagus and Cheese Deviled Eggs
1 pealed, cooked and chopped asparagus stalk per 2 yolks, 1 teaspoon olive oil, fill eggs and top with parmesean shavings, broil until cheese begins to crisp.. minute or two.
Sometimes topping a plain deviled egg can be magical:
Chopped cooked bacon or ham
toasted sunflower seeds
Anyone else have some recipe ideas?
Have a HAPPY EASTER!!!
