Stir Things Up With These Dill Pickle Deviled Eggs
In case you were wondering, Saturday (Nov. 2) happened to be National Deviled Eggs Day. Did you miss it? There's still time to make some this weekend!
But before you go decide to whip some up using the same old tired recipe your mom has been using for years, we might have something that you should try: Add some pickles!
You heard right. Sometimes, the easiest thing you can do to turn a traditional recipe into a way more exciting one is to add some dill. And in this recipe borrowed from our friends at Delish, there is plenty of that flavoring—coming straight from pickle juice, freshly chopped dill and minced dill pickles themselves.
Are you getting hungry? While many may consider deviled eggs as a more summer-friendly appetizer, the fact is that deviled eggs can be loved all year round. Heck, they can be quite the elegant appetizer at your holiday gatherings that are currently awaiting you just around the corner.
