'Tis The Hard Boiled Egg Season- Deviled Egg Dip

When the smell of vinegar and warm eggs fill the house- It's definitely Easter!  Our family loves to dye eggs.  We have a long standing Easter tradition to dye dozens of eggs.  It's fun to relax for an hour and create beautiful eggs worthy of snuggling in your Easter basket.  Our table is filled with crayons, tape, dyes, old towels, and string.  We sit, laugh, and tell stories of Easter past as we design our eggs destined for egg hunts and centerpieces. 

After the egg hunts, what do you do with all those eggs?

Here is a simple, easy way to make deviled eggs without all the prep time.  I like to serve this dip with classic saltine or snack crackers.  The kids enjoy this treat.

Whip up a batch of Deviled Egg Dip!
Here is what you need:
  • a blender or we use a Ninja  
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar (depends on your tastes)
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 6 boiled eggs
  • paprika
Here is what you do:
  • crack and peel your eggs
  • place the eggs in your blender
  • chop them or pulsate for a minute or so-  you want it a little chunky
  • add your seasonings, mayo, and mustard
  • mix for a bit, just until everything is coated
  • spoon into a serving bowl, sprinkle with paprika, and chill
Here's how to serve this dip:
  • Dish up onto crackers/toast triangles or serve them already "plated". 
  • Use crackers to dip.

Easter eggs are great for snacking and are actually versatile in the kitchen.  Do you have any tips for using all those eggs up?

Yum, sounds great! I bet it would be wonderful with some pita chips.
