Spicy Asparagus Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are great for a quick snack right out of the fridge.

They’re also a tasty finger food for get-togethers or even a cool side dish on a hot day.

I especially like that deviled eggs can be made ahead of time too.

These deviled eggs come with a bonus, a fresh veggie, asparagus.

The raw asparagus in these yummies adds a subtle crunch as well as texture and a pretty color.

Instead of garnishing these deviled eggs with paprika, they’re topped with a drizzle of hot sauce which adds a pop of flavor as well as a nice garnish.

There’s also hot sauce in the filling to add a bit more spiciness to the mix.

Okay, enough talking about how great deviled eggs are, let’s check out the ingredients.

But first, have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

Hard boiled eggs, raw asparagus, mayonnaise, yellow mustard, red onion, sweet pickles, dried dill, salt, pepper and hot sauce.

Here’s how to make it.

Slice the hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise.

With a small spoon, scoop out the yolks and add them to a medium size bowl.

With a fork, mash the yolks into small crumbles.

Add mayonnaise, mustard, diced sweet pickles, diced red onion, sliced raw asparagus, hot sauce, dried dill, salt and pepper….

….and…

…mix all ingredients together.  Do a taste test and add more salt or hot sauce if needed.

Salt really makes the flavors pop so an option is to first add the salt to taste and then the hot sauce.

Fill the egg whites with the egg yolk mixture.

Garnish each deviled egg with a drizzle of hot sauce, slices of asparagus, and diced red onion.

If making these ahead of time, add the hot sauce (for garnish) just before serving.

Store in the refrigerator.

And…

…enjoy.
