Let’s Blog Over Deviled Eggs…
The Holidays are upon us and that means it’s time to pull out the aprons, get in the kitchen, start cooking, and most importantly start the entertaining!
A big platter of deviled eggs, stuffed with an herb-flecked, fluffy, creamy filling, can round out countless comfort-food menus, from light lunches or suppers to picnics, potlucks or backyard barbecues. Here’s a basic recipe for this classic dish. If you want to get a little more creative I challenge you to set up a deviled egg bar.
How To Create A Deviled Egg Bar
Gosh, this is super easy and fun to assemble. Everyone has such a blast assembling their own deviled eggs and with all the different types of toppings, and each bite is unique and delicious. I like to go beyond the norm and give inspiration to different toppings that cover flavors from around the world and of course, we can’t forget the traditional favorites. But it’s all about inspiration and showing how each bite can be reminiscent of a past trip, memory and moment.
There are so many themes and ideas for your deviled egg bar. The possibilities are endless! Here are some of my fave’s
Japanese: Have a variety of furikake seasonings, fragrant bonito flakes, yuzu kosho, and zingy picked ginger.
California Coastal Fresh: Think ripe sweet heirloom cherry tomato, swipe of fresh basil pesto and a sliver of crispy fried garlic, all flecked with fresh cracked black pepper and flaky sea salt.
Ham & Pink Pepper: Salty chunks of smoked ham paired with the zippy spice of crushed pink peppercorns is fabulous. Don’t forget the smoked sea salt, some flecks of fresh thyme and you have a unique combination that everyone will drool over.
Indian: A little swipe of sweet mango chutney and paprika is a powerful bite of dreamy Indian flavors. And to make it more versatile, try a deviled egg with some curry powder and cayenne. The rich spices are packed with an unforgettable punch.
The Spicy Bite: If you’re like me and can tolerate a ton of spicy heat this is for you! There’s always going to be someone around that loves spicy. And bacon! So top the egg with slivers of bacon, jalapeño, habanero, and/or a swipe of your favorite hot sauce like Sriracha or anything that tips the spicy scale to over the top.
Timeless: The classics such as smoke salmon, dill, chives and other variations are always popular, appreciated and devoured super quick.
Again the possibilities are endless. Enjoy and tag me in your photos should you set this up.
