One appetizer that I can always depend on is deviled eggs. It’s the first thing I grab when I see them out on a table at a party. I guess they go under the category of “comfort food” for me. One appetizer I have never posted is a deviled egg only because it’s not Greek. So here it is. My take of a traditional American dish with A Greek twist to put out on your appetizer table this holiday season.

To start off making this recipe visit my post on How-To Make Hard Boil Eggs. It’s  easy and fast with instructions you’ll never forget. It’ s important to get this right because you don’t want to see that green ring around your eggs, from overcooking them. While you are there, don’t forget to check out my tip on how to to peel eggs. So easy. This recipe can be doubled for a large group. A smart tip: Place the eggs on a platter lined with lettuce so they stay put while moving around.
