These football deviled eggs are the perfect appetizers for game days. They look like mini footballs and taste just like the classic deviled eggs recipe that are always a hit with everyone at parties.
It is super simple to turn deviled eggs into delicious mini footballs that almost look to cute to eat. Boil a dozen eggs, mix in some mayonnaise, dijon mustard, salt and pepper to the yolks, and scoop back into the egg white halves. Garnish the tops with thin slices of green onion to resemble the stitching of a football.
This recipe makes 24 football deviled eggs, enough to feed a dozen hungry fans allowing for two apiece. You can half or double the recipe as needed.
