Deviled Eggs for Easter

Does anyone else find it weird that it is traditional to make something called "deviled eggs" for Easter? Oh well. After dyeing Easter eggs, that is exactly what I did. This post will be more pictures than words. 
Easter Devils Two Ways
makes 24

1 dozen eggs
mayonnaise (I prefer light)
Dijon mustard, about 2 tablespoons
4 green onions, chopped greens and whites
1 tablespoon dill pickle relish
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon curry powder (or to taste)
salt to taste

Hard boil the eggs by placing in a pan of cold water, bring to a boil, turn off heat and cover. Let sit for 9 minutes. Drain the water and fill the pan with cool water and a few ice cubes. Peel eggs and cut in half. Gently scoop out the yolks. Add about 1/3-1/2 as much mayo as yolks in volume. Add all of the other ingredients, except curry powder. I mash mine with an avocado masher but you can use a fork. I filled half of my eggs with this basic mixture and garnished the top with paprika and dried dill. I added curry to the other half of the egg mixture and garnished with some leftover green onion. 


  1. cute! did you use the eggs for easter egg hunting first?

    i was just thinking about making deviled eggs. do you think i could use yogurt or something else that isnt mayo?

  2. yes i think you could definitely do yogurt but i would add some lemon juice in it. you could also use fat free sour cream. i think that would be the closest and taste best.

    we did not hunt these eggs. eric and alex went to mari's to hunt eggs while i was at work in the icu.
