  3. Spoon 1 heaping Tbsp. yolk mixture into each egg white half. Refrigerate, covered, to blend flavors.


  • Garnish eggs with chopped chives or minced green onions.

I did not care for this recipe.

These were not good. In our family deviled eggs are hard to keep around. Frustrating..

Not bad, just not what I expected, they were a little bland

VERY VERY VERY EASY!!!! And when your short on time this is a perfect appetizer to have. I made it for Easter and it was a hit!!!!
