Football Deviled Eggs – Game Day Appetizers


  • 12 eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 to 4 green onions


  1. Place one dozen eggs into a large pot and cover with one inch of cold water.
  2. Turn the stove onto high and bring the water and eggs to a gentle boil.
  3. Turn off the heat and cover the eggs with a lid, leaving the pot on the burner.
  4. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Larger eggs will take a little bit longer and vice versa.
  5. Drain the water and immediately place the eggs in an ice bath for 5 minutes.
  6. Peel the shells from the eggs.
  7. Cut each egg in half lengthwise and scoop out the yolks into a small bowl. Mash them lightly with a fork.
  8. Cool for another 15 minutes, giving them the occasional stir to speed up the release of heat.
  9. Add mayonnaise, dijon mustard, salt and pepper to the yolks and mix until most of the lumps are gone.
  10. Scoop the mixture back into the egg whites.
  11. Slice the green onions into slivers lengthwise.
  12. Cut the onion slivers to fit the size of your eggs. You will need one long and three short pieces of green onion per egg half.
  13. Arrange the green onions on top of the eggs as pictured in the image above.
  14. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to serve.

  1. These eggs are adorable! I love the green onion “laces” myself, but wonder if you have some “hot” lovers that might like jalapeno “laces” better? Also I like to put a little bit of curry powder in the yellow mix for a slightly different taste. Thanks for your idea! Oh, as far as SB50, I,m just a Peyton Manning supporter from back in his UT days. Win or lose, I hope he has a good game with no injuries.
