Ingredients

For the Deviled Eggs and Filling:

  • 7 hard boiled eggs cooled and peeled
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon yellow prepared mustard
  • 1/4 cup sliced raw asparagus (tough stems removed) (sliced widthwise, apprx. 1/8 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons diced sweet pickles
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons hot sauce (or add to taste)
  • 4 dashes Kosher salt (or add to taste)
  • 3 dashes ground black pepper

For Garnish:

  • Sliced (widthwise) asparagus (2 or 3 slices per deviled egg)
  • 14 drizzles hot sauce (2 drizzles per deviled egg)
  • 14 pinches diced red onion (2 pinches per deviled egg)

Instructions

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.
  • To the bowl, add mayonnaise, mustard, asparagus, red onion, sweet pickles, hot sauce, dill, salt and pepper. Mix all ingredients together. Do a taste test and add more salt or hot sauce if needed. 
  • Fill the egg whites with the egg yolk mixture (there should be enough of the egg yolk mixture to form a small "mound" on each deviled egg) . 

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.
