#BeEggsquisite Holiday Appetizers // Devilled Eggs Three Ways

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! The tree is up, the stockings are hung, and for the first time ever my Christmas shopping is done! All that’s left now is the food. This year I will be hosting my family Christmas party, which is no easy feat. With 15 adults, 3 teenagers, 2 kids, and 3 dogs trompsing around my house, it’s always an interesting afternoon.

Deviled-Eggs-Three-Ways

I don’t know about you, but my family likes to put out quite the spread. Jumbo shrimp, quiche, popcorn, chips & salsa, fruit skewers, veggies & dip, and devilled eggs galore. And sure enough, there is one thing on our family’s table that rarely makes it past first rounds; devilled eggs. Seriously, they are gone in a blink of an eye! It’s no wonder why; Canada produces some of the world’s best eggs. With 6 grams of protein and 14 essential nutrients, eggs are the most complete natural food.

There is nothing wrong with the classic recipe, I’m just looking to take it up a notch. Bacon, truffles, smoked salmon, homemade caesar dressing… yeah, we are going to get a little fancy!
