From the Garden, Herb Deviled Eggs Recipe

The season of grilling, backyard barbecues and park picnics reminds me of one family favorite side dish, deviled eggs. Although they are not personally my favorite, my family goes a little gaga for them. Not only are they extremely easy to make but the flavor combinations are endless and allows you to be creative in the kitchen.

Now that I’m growing my very own herb garden, I’m excited about putting these tasty green growths to use in my first summer dish, Herb Deviled Eggs. For this dish I pulled out my scissors and snipped a bit of fresh parsley, chives and cilantro.

Together, these three little herbs brighten up an ordinary deviled egg side dish.

    Amazing photos Cat! I am a devilled eggs gal through and through! My MIL’s recipe is to die for. She puts vinegar in hers and I have never heard of chives. But I bet it gives the eggs a kick! I’m gonna try this one soon!

    I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs: http://EggFreeLiving.com
