We all know I need little excuse to the throw a party.  The Super Bowl is less than two days away….who needs a better reason than that?  I may not know the teams that are playing (kidding), but what I do know is the Super Bowl is the perfect opportunity for a themed party.  My goal this year is to be out of the kitchen in time for kick-off, so I can enjoy my friends, family, and the game.  Thus I am planning my menu based on dishes that can be prepared in advance and of course around the competing teams.  This is a themed party after all.

Caper Deviled Eggs

Technically speaking a “deviled” egg has a hot spice in the filling, such as cayenne or hot red pepper sauce. Berghoff Horseradish Deviled Eggs would certainly qualify. But the term has also become generic for stuffed eggs, and we make two popular versions for people who prefer a milder flavor. I serve these at home for appetizers, brunch, lunch, and dinner.

Use deviled egg filling as a spread for Panini, as a topping for open-faced hors d’oeurve toast triangles, or as a dip for crudités.

Ingredients

  • 12 hard boiled eggs, peeled, halved lengthwise
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • ¼ cup minced green onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced capers
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Whole capers, drained, for garnish

Instructions

Separate the hard-boiled yolks from the egg white halves and place the yolks in the work bowl o f a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and mustard. Process until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and stir in the green onion, minced capers, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before using.

To fill, trim the thin slice from the bottom of a cooked egg white half so it stands level. Either spoon 2 tablespoons of filling into each egg cavity, smoothing the top, or transfer the filling to a pastry bag fitted with a ¼ inch plain tip and pipe the filling in. Garnish each egg with 1 to 3 drained capers.
