Spinach Deviled Eggs



Ingredients:
10 hardboiled eggs, peeled and sliced length-wise
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons capers (optional)
smoked paprika
1/4 cup frozen spinach (defrosted, drained and chopped*)

crisp bacon or large capers for garnish


Directions:
In a small bowl, use a fork and thoroughly mix together the yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, capers, parsley, pepper, and a bit of smoked paprika. Spoon an equal amount into each of the egg halves. Top with tiny bits of crisp bacon or a jumbo sized caper and serve.

*or subsitute 1/4 cup cooled, "wilted" fresh spinach

My thoughts:
At Springtime, a girl's thoughts naturally turn to deviled eggs. These are made a little extra special by the addition of chopped spinach and a bit of bacon. The smoked paprika really compliments the bacon, but regular or hot paprika would work just as well. I think this might be my new favorite deviled egg recipe!

  6. Herbed Deviled Eggs are good, too. Try adding one of the following fresh chopped herbs to your regular deviled egg recipe: taragon, thyme, chive, or basil. It's fun to make a plate with some of each on it.
