My confession of the day: I stocked up on way too many eggs when they were on sale…. like 6 dozen. The good news is, I have quite a few recipes planned to try out using up these eggs! One way I tend to use eggs up is to make deviled eggs. These Chive Deviled Eggs include some fresh snipped chives into the filling for color and subtle flavor. It’s a nice, light appetizer for a spring menu or even as an everyday snack for a boost of protein.
This is a pretty straightforward recipe. I’ve tried several recipes in the past but this would have to my favorite and go-to version. Eggs, mayo, dry mustard, vinegar, fresh chives, salt and pepper is all you need. For a little garnish, a sprinkling of paprika does the trick!
