Mid week before a holiday weekend and the rush is on. Menus are being finalized and shopping lists are written up.
When it comes to recipes, we all have family favs that we love to prepare. Some are traditional and simply cannot be “messed with” or improved upon. With others, we can get a bit more lively and add some “flair” for the event.
Deviled Eggs were always on the table for family events, and for years I had assumed they could only be prepared one way. As delicious as I found them, I was delighted when it dawned on me, how many flavors could be added to the “basic” ingredients.
Bacon-and-Cheese Deviled Eggs
A delicious alternative to the “basic” recipe and a touch of bacon adds tremendous flavor. The shopping list is simple; eggs, sharp cheddar, mayonnaise, bacon, salt, pepper and a bit of hot sauce. Saveur Magazine is a fantastic site to find a great twist on your favorite recipes. Recipe
Sour Cream, Lemon and Herb Deviled Eggs
Sour cream, lemon and Dijon mustard give this next recipe a tart, creamy flavor. Bon Appetit Magazine is another great site for inspiration. It has a few pop-ups as you enter the site, but once you move those out of your way it’s a great place to spend some time. Shopping list; eggs, sour cream, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon peel, lemon juice, cayenne pepper and fresh parsley or thyme. Recipe
Wild Alaskan Crab Deviled Eggs
Here is a tantalized sample of the this next site has to offer as far as recipes for deviled eggs. Yes, recipes as in plural. There are some tremendously tasty options over at Restaurant-Hospitality.com, again, the ingredients list is basic with an addition or two; eggs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, hot sauce, salt and Wild Alaskan Crab meat. Garnish, as always, your choice. Recipe
