Devilish Ideas for Super Bowl Sunday Finger Foods!

Hosting with the home-field advantage this season? The Farmers Market has got you covered for the Big Day! While we know you will be picking up hot pepper jam, fresh avocados and tomatoes for homemade guacamole, salsa and dips (and we don’t blame you!) we have a devilish idea for a simple, delicious and affordable finger food that is sure to make the crowds go wild!

Deviled Eggs are the ultimate retro food and they are coming back into party vogue! If you are looking for quick, easy, healthy, locally sourced finger foods for your Super Bowl Party, then you need to put these little devils on your shopping list for tomorrow’s market!
Why do we call these delicious morsels deviled? You might think its because they are so tempting, but it has nothing to do with their allure! The term originated with the spiciness of the filling!
In the 1930s and 1940s, a food containing mustard was considered spicy and hot, hence the term deviled!
In todays cuisine where heat and spiciness abound, classic deviled eggs seem pretty tame. While there is nothing wrong with the classic deviled egg.. why not try something new for your next party?
Below you will find a recipe for Spicy Asian Deviled Eggs, sharing from our egg vendor Tartaglia Farm, but we want you to flex your creative muscle and try to make something uniquely YOU! Feeling saucy?

Guidelines For How to Make Your Own Deviled Egg Recipe!

  1. Hard cook your eggs, peel and slice in half. Squeeze gently to pop the yolk out and place into a mixing bowl.
  2. Start with something to moisten and mash the yolks, such as sour cream, cream cheese, yogurt, salsa, mayonnaise, salad dressing or barbecue sauce. Use ½ cup to 2/3 cup per one dozen eggs.
  3. Add seasoning, if necessary. Pre blended seasoning mixes like taco or chili seasoning work well. (Keep in mind, some dressings and sauces in step two are flavorful enough that no additional spices may be needed!)
  4. Add an ingredient for a little crunch, if desired. Pickle relish, finely chopped vegetables or panko work well. Use ¼ cup per dozen eggs.
  5. Garnish the eggs with chopped parsley, cilantro, paprika or anything you feel inspired to dress it up with!
No matter how you stuff them, they are sure to be a party favorite!
