Is it just me or are deviled eggs gone within seconds of arriving at a party? They’re the perfect bite, and I know I can’t help myself from eating at least 4 or 5 of them. You can also dress them up however you’d like, and they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Instead of choosing one deviled egg variety at your next party, I have a genius idea. Are you ready for this?!? A DEVILED EGG BAR! You start out with a really amazing basic deviled egg recipe, and surround these perfect beauties with the best toppings!
Here we go!
What you need for the basic deviled egg:
12 eggs, hard boiled
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I use Sir Kensington’s)
2 tbl milk
1/2 tsp finely chopped green onion
1/2 tsp ground mustard powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika (plus extra for dusting)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Slice your eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolks. Put in a medium sized bowl. Put the whites aside.
In the bowl with yolks, add the rest of the ingredients and mush with a fork, or even a hand held mixer, until there are no more lumps.
If you’re not serving the eggs right away, put it in an air tight container and leave in the fridge.
If you’re serving right away, put your yolk mixture in a piping bag and pipe yolks into whites.
In small bowls surrounding your eggs, you can put as many toppings as you’d like! Here’s what I chose:
Blue cheese, chives and bacon
Dill and capers
Ham and bacon
Chili peppers and cilantro
Tomato, bacon and chives
Smoked salmon, dill and capers
The world is your deviled egg! Have fun with it.
Styling tips: I used this marble and wood beautiful serving platter from West Elm to display my egg bar, and their #loveislove plates for my guests. I garnished the board with a little dill and made sure to line my eggs up perfectly in a row.
