a flight of eggs

deviled eggs are delicious... a total childhood favorite of mine.
not to disregard the classic recipes, but here are a few ideas
for spicing up your deviled eggs.

need a tip for hard boiled eggs? submerge your eggs in a cold pot of water, bring to a boil. then turn off and remove from heat. let sit for 12-15 minutes (depending on how solid you like your yokes).

base: cool your eggs to room temp. slice eggs in half and remove the yolks. i used my food processor, but a fork works well too. mix in a splash of white vinegar, a spoonful of mustard, salt, pepper, and a few spoonfuls of cream cheese or sour cream (whatever you might have on hand).

add ins:
try mixing in fresh basil, jared artichoke hearts, and pine nuts for pesto deviled egg.
or... roasted peppers, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper for spicy deviled eggs.
or... grated carrot, whole grain mustard and dill, for crunchy classic deviled eggs.

this is a great protein packed snack - experiment with vegetables and spices!

  1. Lovely presentation. I'd like to make these with my neighbor Suzanne's fresh free-range eggs and our own herbs!
