I don’t know about you, but there are a handful of required food items at any given social gathering in my family. Vying for the most important are: queso and deviled eggs. Since tomorrow is a holiday and I haven’t shared any recipes in awhile, I thought now might be a good time–you know, in case you’re stymied for ideas of what to take to the obligatory July 4th BBQ you’re invited to attend.
In trying to pick which of the two VIP food items I wanted to talk about, I decided to go with deviled eggs because I was chatting with Christi the other day about side dishes for her July 4th BBQ and since then I’ve been pondering all the ways you can make them. If you google “deviled eggs,” Google will kindly return with “about 3,460,000 results” in 0.42 seconds (Google is a bit of a show-off) and if you search for “deviled eggs” on Pinterest, you could scroll down for 3 days and not run out of pins from which to choose!
I know that I’ve already shared my recipe for deviled eggs with you.
But as both Google and Pinterest show, there is more than one way to devil an egg. Probably the only thing harder than keeping your self control in check, is picking a recipe. I mean, do you want classic or something more creamy or something with a kick or something eye-catching and holiday-themed? The possibilities are endless!
Here are a few that caught my eye (note: few is a relative term, as you’re about to see):
The recipe that sounds the best to me are the Bacon Jalapeño Deviled Eggs from Aubrey at Real Housemoms. Hellllllo bacon + jalapeño! In fact, they sounded so good to me, I actually pinned them twice!! 🙈
If you really haaaate cilantro, I guess you can leave it out…. 😉
Looking for a good brunch deviled egg? McCormick has a recipe for Spicy Bloody Mary Deviled Eggs!
If salmon/beets/dill aren’t you thing, how about Mexican street corn? Melanie at Melanie Makes combines the fun of Mexican street corn with the deliciousness of deviled eggs in her Mexican Street Corn Deviled Eggs.
Any pique your interest? Honesty I could probably spend another 4 hours sharing deviled eggs recipes, but I’m starting to get hungry and for some strange reason, eggs sound good 😉
But before I leave, I want to hear from you. Which recipe sounds the best? Vote below! And if you can’t decide between two, I’ve left you the option to pick’em both! 😉
