The other day I was thinking about fun ways to add a bit of green food to my menu in honor of St. Patrick’s Day coming up. Coincidentally, March is also the birth month of Dr. Seuss and well… next thing I knew, the idea for Deviled Green Eggs & Ham popped into my head! Deviled eggs are one of my all-time favorite picnic/special occasion treats (I’ve even turned them into Deviled Egg Salad sandwiches which you can see here) and yet, they actually are pretty easy to make any day of the week, so I don’t know why I hold out on these. Normally I don’t make mine with relish but since I wanted to add some “green” this was the perfect condiment for the job.
Here’s my recipe:
- 3 eggs
- 1 tablespoon Mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Sweet Relish + more for garnish
- 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
- 1 slice of Country Ham, diced
- Place eggs in a small pot and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and allow to boil for one minute. Turn heat off, cover pot and let sit for 12-13 minutes. Remove eggs from pot and place in a bowl with cool water to bring the temperature down.
- Once eggs are cool to the touch, slice eggs in half, lengthwise and remove yolk into bowl and set egg whites aside.
- Mash yolks with a fork until fine, mix in mayonnaise, one tablespoon of relish, and mustard.
- Spoon yolk mixture into egg white. Gently spoon a little more relish onto the top of the yolk mixture and garnish with the diced country ham.
- Savor every slightly sweet and savory bite!
It’s hard to say how many people this recipe will serve. I’ve listed two but who am I kidding… I could eat all of this myself if I’m not careful!
This is a great dish for an appetizer, to accompany a salad, or as the first course of a memorable picnic. I hope you enjoy it!
