Caper Lemon Deviled Eggs

I don’t know why I haven’t tried more recipes with capers because I’ve always had an affinity for them, so I decided to try a classic combination. There were so many choices for recipes to try, but I settled on an old favorite.

We LOVE deviled eggs in our house and last year I shared one of our favorites, these Deviled Eggs with Candied Bacon.  This year I found a new favorite. These deviled eggs are great for brunch, as an appetizer, or as a party food. When I first tried the recipe the flavors were a bit overpowering, so I modified the original to our liking.

If you are wondering what other fancy toppings to put onto deviled eggs, here are some ideas:

  • Bacon, Blue Cheese & Chives
  • Paprika, Radish, & Chives
  • Feta, Lemon & Oregano
  • Sriracha, Black Sesame Seeds & Cilantro

Other great appetizer ideas:

Caper Lemon Deviled Eggs

Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 1/2 T Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 T mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t freshly ground pepper
  • 2 T minced fresh chives
  • 2 t finely minced shallots
  • 1 1/2 T coarsely chopped capers (I didn't rinse and dry mine, but you may prefer to)
  • 1 t grated lemon zest

Instructions

  1. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place in a bowl. Set aside the whites to be filled later.
  2. Add the mustard, mayonnaise, pepper, chives (leave just a few to garnish with), shallots, capers and lemon zest to the yolks. Mash together with a fork until the yolk mixture is smooth and fluffy.
  3. Spoon 1 heaping teaspoonful of the yolk mixture into each egg-white half, mounding it slightly.
  4. Cover and chill for an hour and serve within 4 hours.
