We will gather around the table with ham, sweet potatoes , macaroni & cheese, and squash. We have sworn to cut back on desserts this year; so maybe only an apple pie, some raspberry crunch and sugar cookies decorated like Easter Eggs and lambs.
Another southern favorite are deviled eggs; just the thing for any church social, picnic, or tail gate. The name is not very easter-ish...but that is what they are. It is the perfect solution for all of those colored eggs. Try this easy recipe for 'sunrise easter eggs'.
6 hard boiled eggs
3 Tbs mayonnaise
1 tsp honey mustard
2 Tbs pickle relish
Hard boil eggs by placing in cold water, then bring to a hard boil for at least 14 minutes. Cool eggs in the fridge. When cool enough to handle, peel shells- careful not to pick the whites. Slice eggs in half, lengthwise. Collect the yolks into a bowl and set the whites aside.
Mash the yolks with the mayo, mustard and relish until smooth. Spoon or pipe the yellow mixture into the egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
