Summertime is party time. Whether you’re hosting a Labor Day barbecue for extended family or are inviting all the kids’ friends over to celebrate an endless summer, we all have a full calendar this time of year. When planning for summer soirees, make sure you put homemade deviled eggs on the menu. Deviled eggs are always a crowd pleaser. Whether you are making your grandmother’s no-frills recipe or adding mix-ins like bacon, jalapeños, or smoked salmon, this egg-cellent app will fly off the table.
Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs
Pimento cheese is good on (or in) just about everything – and deviled eggs are no exception. In the South, it’s not surprising to see this delicious spread mixed into egg yolks for a cheesy twist on the standard deviled egg. Top them with crispy, crumbled bacon and a little fresh dill for a next-level appetizer.
Avocado Deviled Eggs
If you already have plenty of avocados in your kitchen for avocado toast and smoothies, try adding them to your deviled eggs. Top each avocado deviled egg – or Green Devil as they are sometimes called – with salsa and a sprig of cilantro. Serve them on Cinco de Mayo, gameday, or at summer potlucks.
Dill Pickle Deviled Eggs
If you’re a pickle lover then this recipe is for you. Have you ever added sweet relish to your deviled eggs? Try adding tangy dill pickles instead and see which version you like more. We topped these dill pickle deviled eggs with even more pickles (we found that baby dills work best for garnishing purposes), for a tangy treat that belongs on the buffet table year round.
Classic Deviled Eggs
