Spicy Asparagus Deviled Eggs

As delicious as they are pretty.

These deviled eggs are so pretty that they look like a decoration for a dinner table or appetizer bar.

The vibrant colors from the ingredients and garnishes look so appetizing and appealing that they are almost too pretty to eat.

And most importantly, they taste wonderful.

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.

Here are more recipes with asparagus you may like “Honey Dijon Asparagus with Goat Cheese and Almonds“, “Roasted Asparagus and Tomato Garlic Bread Grilled Cheese” and “Pasta with Browned Butter Cream Sauce with Bacon and Asparagus“.

Instead of topping these deviled eggs with paprika which is a traditional garnish, they’re topped with a drizzle of hot sauce which adds a pop of flavor as well as vibrant color.

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

When it comes to boiling the eggs for this recipe…as easy as it sounds to “boil an egg”, there is actually an art to it so not to overcook the eggs.

Here are some great tips on “How to Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs” from Simply Recipes.

Serve these deviled eggs as a side dish, appetizer or as a light meal main dish.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

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

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

For the Deviled Eggs and Filling:

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.

For Garnish:

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 each and every delicious bite.
