I am one of those people that loves eggs so much that I can’t go a week without having them. Breakfast without eggs is not a real breakfast as far as I am concerned. Not only are eggs delicious they are a good source of protein and amino acids.
This past weekend my mum had a Easter dinner party at home and she told me she served deviled eggs as the appetizer. I remember thinking what a great idea and why hadn’t I made them before? So of course I decided to make deviled eggs and have fallen in love with them.
I love the way mum served her deviled eggs, garnished with curly parsley on a floral platter with a gold trim. See picture above.
