Gluten Free Deviled Green Eggs and Ham Recipe
Brunch is a lovely way to entertain, especially for Easter. Typically, brunch is less expensive to host than serving the same amount of people at a dinner party. And what better way to enjoy a lovely spring day?
A brunch menu can really include any type of food you want – breakfast, lunch, sweet, savory – but it is best to include a combination.
If the idea of hosting a party earlier in the day makes you nervous, don’t fret. We have come up with ways to take out the stress and leave in the fun.
The trick to reducing stress is to be prepared. Prepare the food in advance, decorate and arrange flowers the day before, and set up food stations where people can serve themselves.
Another tip for easy parties is to combine dishes that you make with ones that can be assembled.
Preparing your party food in advance can reduce stress and these deviled eggs can easily be made the day before and assembled before your guests arrive.
- 3 thin slices prosciutto
- 12 hard boiled eggs peeled and halved lengthwise
- 2 ripe avocados
- ⅓ cup mayonnaise
- 2 limes zest finely grated and juiced
- ¾ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 3-4 dashes hot sauce
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the prosciutto on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until crispy. Let cool. Break into 24 shards. Can be made 1 day ahead. Store in a food storage bag at room temperature.
Remove the yolks from the eggs and place in a medium mixing bowl. Place the whites on a serving platter. Mash the yolks into a fine crumble using a fork. Add the flesh from the avocados, mayonnaise, lime zest and juice, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Mix well. Spoon or pipe the filling into the egg whites (feel free to over-stuff them, as you will have a lot of filling). Sprinkle the chives over the tops of the egg yolk mixture. Can be made the night before – cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Before serving, stick one prosciutto shard into each egg.
