Looking for a fun & creative deviled egg recipe?  Try this one:

Ingredients:

  • 12 hard-boiled eggs, cooled, and peeled?
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • Pinch of sweet paprika (to taste)
  • 1-2 cups baby greens (optional)
  • Your choice of toppings (see Topping Options for ideas)

1. Cut the eggs lengthwise in half. Gently scoop out the yolks and put them in a mixing bowl.

2. Blend the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard and vinegar into the yolks. Add the paprika to taste.  Then taste and adjust the mixture (if necessary) by blending in a little more vinegar or paprika

 

3. Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg halves, or you can put the yolk mixture in a gallon-size zip-top plastic bag (good for presentation and making the bunny face), carefully squeezing it into one of the bottom corners. Use scissors to clip a small opening in the corner and squeeze out any air pockets. Squeeze the bag to pipe the yolk filling into the egg cups.

4. Sprinkle or decorate with toppings as desired. Optional – Make a baby greens “nest” on a platter for the deviled eggs.

 

Topping Options:

  • Thinly sliced carrots, beets, bell peppers, or radishes, halved or quartered cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs (dill, tarragon, chives, or basil), sliced pitted black olives.
  • For the bunny face, cut small bell pepper or carrot slices for ears, use black olives for eyes, a small piece of pimento or tomato for nose, and chives for whiskers.
