EASTER-Y DEVILED EGGS

This dancing egg chick that was recently installed on the esplanade outside my office reminds me that every year around this time I get lots of visitors to the blog looking for cute deviled egg ideas for Easter — this year is no exception.  Apparently deviled eggs are not just popular in the South!  So for those of you hunting for a fun appetizer for an Easter meal, here’s the updated 2017 annual roundup of Easter-y deviled eggs.

Your family will cluck with approval at these cute little chicks from swellkid:
