Make these pretty Deviled Egg Daisies for Easter, Mother's Day, a birthday party, or a spring luncheon. The flower-shaped appetizer is easy to make and looks great.
Imagine you are scrambling to get your meal finished before your guests arrive for Easter Dinner. You will barely have enough time to get yourself cleaned up and dressed, and the last thing you have time for is filling a bunch of deviled eggs.
I've got an easy solution to your problem.
Cut your hard-boiled eggs in half, make your favorite deviled egg filling, then throw together a deviled egg display that will only take minutes and surely impress your guests.
hard-boiled eggs - See my Deviled Egg Footballs recipe for the best recipe to make easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs.
Deviled egg filling ingredients - I add Miracle Whip to the egg yolks and call it a day. You can add mayo and seasonings if you prefer.
green onions, scallions, or even celery - Use these to make the daisy stem and leaves. (I'm sure you have something green in your fridge.)
Peel your hard-boiled eggs. Cut them in half and separate the yolks and whites. Break up the yolks into a bowl and make your deviled egg filling. I simply add a little Miracle Whip and mix it into the yolks.
Arrange 8 egg white halves cut side down in a circle on a platter.
Spoon some deviled egg mixture in the center of the egg whites.
Add a green stem with some grass or leaves (how about a few spinach or basil leaves.)
Make as many daisies as you'd like, then spoon the remaining deviled egg mixture into a bowl, set the remaining hard-boiled egg whites around the bowl, add a spoon to the bowl, and have your guests fill their own eggs.
They'll be so impressed by your daisy, they won't think a thing of making their own deviled egg.
You're done, now go get dressed.
I am so thrilled to see pictures from my readers.
Roxanne Chan dressed up these Deviled Egg Daisies by filling her eggs with a mixture of egg yolks and butternut squash. Very creative. I just love the frilly dill grass she added to the bottom of her serving platter.
