I'm Always The Egg Girl

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

I make a really good deviled egg.  I do.  In fact, whenever we have any type of get together at my mom's house, I am always the one who brings the eggs.  My recipe is pretty basic, with mayo, salt, pepper, and some type of pickle (depending on what I have in the fridge), with paprika sprinkled on top.  That's it. 

I think it's time to find a new recipe.  Maybe something with a little kick.

I was playing around online, and found this recipe on the TABASCO® Original Red  website.  Check out the ingredients:

  • 12 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup nonfat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon original red TABASCO sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, basil, dill, chives
  • Salt to taste

I have to admit, it has never occurred to me to add yogurt to the yolk mixture.  I bet it makes the centers so creamy and delicious.  The TABASCO sauce, which is "so much more than hot", probably adds just enough of a kick to bring out all the other flavors.  I think I might try this recipe the next time I make eggs, which will probably be soon. 

You can find tons of other simple finger food recipes on TABASCO's Game-Day Party Menu.  I know a lot of people have Super Bowl parties, and these recipes would make some wonderful foods for that.  With their Pizza Perfected ideas, you can see how to use TABASCO Original Red to spruce up delivery and frozen pizzas.  Why not make this a new game day tradition?  You can each pick a different pizza and see how you can make it better using TABASCO Original Red.  Do you want to make it hot, or simply enhance the flavors?  My husband likes a lot of heat in everything he eats, so I'm curious to see how much sauce he'll add to his.

Who says you need to have a party to enjoy party foods, anyway?  These recipes would also work for our family game nights.  Or any other night, for that matter.
