Southern Deviled Eggs with Flair

Have you ever noticed that the platter of deviled eggs at a pot luck dinner is the first to go? We wouldn't think of having a picnic without deviled eggs and no Easter table is complete without deviled eggs. My Grandmother made the most delicious deviled eggs, of course they were fresh right out of the hen house. She had a standard recipe that has been passed through the years all the way down to me. Now my Grandmother would not have thought of putting so many different garnishes on the deviled eggs, but our generation does and we love all those different garnishes.

  2. Always nice on Easter Table. I coloured eggs with some kids few days ago and made Olivier, (Russian egg) salad. But Easter is not over yet and this is another good idea!

  5. I guess I'm the unusual one who doesn't really care for deviled eggs! BUT that said I'm really curious about your spicy deviled eggs here. I might have to branch out and bring them to our next potluck! Thanks for sharing!
