Caprese Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs + cheese + basil + tomatoes + balsamic = DELICIOUS! Add a little kick to the classic recipe to add a some variety to your Easter dinner menu. These eggs are only slightly more work than the regular recipe but the additions bring so much flavor! I would recommend making extra, as you’ll probably sneak a few before company comes over.

Caprese Deviled Eggs

Makes 12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 dozen hard boiled eggs (I recommend using a BeepEgg or electric pressure cooker to hard boil eggs.)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil, reserve some for garnish
  • 2 tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes, for garnish
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, for garnish

Instruction:

  1. Cut eggs in half and scoop yolks into a bowl. Add mayo, butter, mustard, chopped basil (excluding a little to use for garnish), and mozzarella cheese. Mix until smooth with a fork or hand mixer. Taste and season with salt/pepper as needed.
  2. Scoop egg mixture back into egg halves. You can also put mixture into a piping bag to make a pretty swirl, but I feel you lose too much egg mixture this way.
  3. Slice sun-dried tomatoes into small strips. Place one strip on each egg. Top with a few pieces of reserved basil. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar just before serving.

Lemon & Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Do you capitalize Brussels sprout or leave it as brussels sprout? How about the “s” at the end of brussel? According to my research, the following are all correct: Brussels sprout, Brussel sprout, brussels sprout, brussel sprout. Regardless of how you say it, I do hope you try this recipe. It would make an excellent side for Easter brunch or served for dinner alongside salmon or chicken. I recommend cutting the sprout in half no matter what size they are. Why? The best part of a roasted brussels/brussel/Brussels/Brussel sprout are the crunchy leaves that fall off when the veggie is cut in half. There is nothing more delicious than a hot and crispy brussels sprout leaf. Trust me.

Lemon & Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb brussels sprouts
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 lemon

Instruction:

  1. Preheat oven to 425º.
  2. Wash, trim ends, and cut brussels sprouts in half. Do not throw away the loose leaves; those are the best part! Mince garlic.
  3. Add brussels sprouts, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper to a bowl and toss to combine.
  4. Dump onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast at 425º for 25-30 minutes.
  5. When brussels sprouts are done, transfer to a serving bowl. Quickly zest lemon over the sprouts and finish with a squeeze of juice over the top.
