Touchdown Deviled Eggs

My friends invited us over for a housewarming and Packer party. The game was against our border rivals, Da Bears (still suck), so I knew I needed to make something that was green and gold. I searched far and wide for the perfect snack to go along with my friend's menu and came across a great idea for Touchdown Deviled Eggs after seeing the idea on this blog.

I created my own recipe for Deviled Eggs instead of following the one on the blog. I have chives growing in my garden out front, so I was able to cut those fresh the morning of the party.

I followed a new protocol for getting perfectly boiled eggs. But I did find for my stove, I needed to let them sit for 12 minutes. The first batch at 10 minutes were still a little soft in the middle. This is fine for making deviled eggs, but I like my yolks completely cooked when eating a hard boiled egg.

After the eggs are cooked, cut them all in half, scoop out the yolks and add that to the other ingredients to make the egg filling. I used a pastry brush to mash all the yolks because I was making a party size batch. You can see I have a few whites in my bowl. They tore when scooping out the yolk so I added them to the yolks and filling for extra flavor.

Once everything is mixed together well, use a teaspoon scoop and fill the eggs with heaping scoops. Then cut 1 or 2-inch pieces of chives and then 1/2 inch pieces for the laces.

Placing the laces on the egg can get a little messy. I had a towel nearby to wipe my hands on to not mess up the laces with the egg. Lightly press each piece on top until you have the desired football you are wanting.

The eggs were well received, the rest of the food was amazing, I got to see friends I haven't see in a while, and the Packers won!

This was the second party that my guy's daughters attended. They aren't into football yet or the adult conversations so my guy always makes sure to bring movies and games for extra entertainment. Headbands, especially the Disney version, was quite the hit again. Almost everyone at the party got into it and had a blast trying to figure out who they were.

Deviled Eggs
6 hard boiled eggs
2 Tbsp. Mayo or Miracle Whip
2 Tbsp. Dill Pickle Relish
1 Tbsp. Yellow Mustard
1 tsp. Dill Weed

Halve the eggs, scoop out the yolks, and place them in a small bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together well. Using a tsp. measure, scoop heaping amounts into each egg white. Top with paprika if not doing the football theme.
