Deviled Egg Variations & Healthy Ways to use leftover Easter food

Leftover holiday food is a favorite of mine! I have a series of Meal of the Moment posts that give ideas on using up leftovers! I pulled a couple ideas from my archives to share with you FRESH AFTER Easter.

A very smart option
to help you use up any carrots
that the {silly little rabbit} didn't eat.

A unique dip, full of flavor,
made with veggies
and served with Wassa crispbread.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

I'm sure your fridge is loaded with pretty rows of colored eggs. I made some super delicious bacon-cheddar deviled eggs. Umm, not so healthy but mmm mm good...more like hearty farm cookin'.

The only additional ingredients you'll need outside of your typical deviled egg recipe is bacon and cheddar cheese. Easily add bacon crumbles and shredded cheese to your favorite deviled egg recipe. My eggs had a button of mustard, some mayo, garlic powder, and the twins...salt & pepper.

Get creative and free with YOUR deviled eggs.

Simply prep your deviled eggs and add these varieties:

*healthy option*
-discard yolk and add mashed avocado seasoned with garlic powder and black pepper to your egg white

- small square of ham and swiss cheese to the top

CRAB deviled EGGS
- crab meat, minced celery, minced green pepper, Worcestershire, and hot sauce

- blue cheese, hot sauce, bbq sauce, dry mustard, and celery salt

- horseradish and dill weed with black pepper

- green chilies, chunky salsa, olives

- minced red onions, carrots, broccoli, and green pepper

What variations do you like for your deviled eggs?

This was an off year...I made no eggs (bought them,but never got around to doing anything with them). MacDaddy was out of town, arriving in time to go to church. New DIL arrived home in the wee hours after a week+ biz trip in China. DB had a gig at a church north of here.Set up was 3am! MG couldn't get home. Everyone of us napped the day away. That's ok...we'll make up for it later with a huge family dinner. Maybe I'll make EGGS. your egg dish. Where did you find this one?
Jane said...

Your photos just get better and better :) The recipes sound fabulous ~ too bad I can't get my guys to be very adventurous in the food dept. for all of my efforts.

I hope you guys enjoyed your Easter. Mine wasn't the best (my little guys was so sick).

My husband loves to come up with a creative deviled eggs recipe every year ... this year he added mashed red potatoes to them (he found the recipe on the internet). They were really great tasting - very creamy.

I just love the way you fill your eggs, cutting only the top off instead of cutting them in half. It's so much prettier! Have to try that next time we make them.

The Deviled Eggs look delish! And I always cut my the other way (so they are short and wide) but may have to start cutting them your way!

Would love for you to share at Calling All Crafters!

Those look delicious, and I love the way you cut your eggs! Visiting from We Are That Family. So glad to happen upon your blog!

Patricia @ ButterYum said...

I really love the way you displayed your deviled eggs - much nicer than the serving them horizontally.

I'll have to try your asparagus pesto dip too. What a wonderful combination.


Pamela said...

I have one of those egg holders. Never thought to put deviled eggs in it. I love the way you stuffed them. Can't wait to try it.
