Dill and Lemon Deviled Eggs

Dill and Lemon Deviled Eggs

One can't help but think about eggs when thinking about Easter and I was wondering how I could enjoy some eggs over the holiday weekend. Since I am not the best at decorating eggs I was looking for something different and the first thing that came to mind were deviled eggs which I had been wanting to try making for a while. Deviled eggs are hard boiled eggs that are cut in half and then stuffed with various things. Since you just pulled the yolks out of the eggs to make room for stuffing the eggs, you might as well use the yolks as the base from the stuffing. From there you can add pretty much anything that you want but mayonnaise and mustard are fairly common ingredients. I had some fresh dill on hand and I figured that along with a hit of lemon it would give a really nice spring version of deviled eggs. Deviled eggs are pretty straight forward to make with the only challenge really being filling the eggs and that can be achieved by placing the filling in a zip-lock bag, cutting the corner off and simply squeezing the filling into the holes. I quite enjoyed the deviled eggs and the egg mayo and mustard combination reminded me of and egg salad. I look forward to further experiments with deviled eggs and next time I am thinking if a spicy version to make them more devilish.

It feels like a great way to add a little Greek flavor to the traditional deviled egg.

Colored eggs definitely don't taste as good as these so I think you made the right choice. What an interesting filling!

I've been seeing deviled eggs pop up at fancy food places as appetizers. Now these aren't your standard potluck deviled eggs, they are usually stuffed three ways and involve a meat. Bacon blue cheese or curried shrimp or apple, feta walnut.

It seems like the perfect dish for easter.

I love the addition of the dill. Great idea!

Juia said...

This is perfect -- I have some many boiled eggs left over from passover (as well as dill and lemon).

Erin said...

I think this will be my weekend recipe for some Easter snacking.
We always sprinkle the eggs with some paprika - cayenne would be good also to give it a kick.
Thanks for the recipe - love your blog!

Love dill!! And the addition of lemon would lighten up the mayo! Yum. Now, hopefully, the chickens down the road are laying lots of eggs. lol

Love dill with eggs (potato salad too), and no Easter table would be complete without deviled eggs on hand!

Dill and lemon? Seems perfect for Spring. I love using crab meat and scallions in my devilled eggs, so maybe will try crab, lemon and dill. Yum.

Muneeba said...

I recently discovered how good deviled eggs can be .. so this looks perfect to start experimenting with on my own!

Jane said...

I often bring deviled eggs to parties (or serve them at my own), and it's nice to present something a little unexpected. Gotta try these! (Tip: don't worry about leftovers; mash 'em up for egg salad sandwiches the next day!)

culinspiration said...

Sounds like a GREAT flavor combination...kind of like avgolemono in handheld form. Yum. I'm saving this recipe to try...SOON.
