My Mom made the best deviled eggs (that and her spaghetti sauce were my two favorites of her recipes). She frequently changed what she put on top (sometimes capers, or bay shrimp, thin slice of dill pickle, black olive slices, etc.) but the basic recipe stayed the same: eggs, mayo, bacon, and onion powder. I have adapted it a bit by adding green olives with pimento, because that is how I make my egg salad sandwiches and I like the brininess of the green olives with the smooth creamy taste of the chopped egg yolks – these flavors just work for me – hope you like it too.
This was one of my contributions for appetizers this Christmas Eve. They went quickly – so assuming they were well received. I love shrimp and if you add some onion and garlic to it, and then fry it, I love it even more! Will be looking to add more fruits and vegetables to my diet in 2013, but for the next few days till the end of 2012 I am concentrating on foods that I really, really like! So before I change my ways for 2013 I will make these again for New Years Eve – only more, lots more.
