Fun Way to Transport and Serve Deviled Eggs

I saw this idea a few years back and it’s the very BEST!

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: unlimited!

Ingredients

deviled eggs
egg cartons (well washed – I like to use the yellow ones)
lettuce or other leafy greens
toothpicks


Directions

Just make your favorite deviled eggs EXCEPT cut the eggs across the middle (instead of end to end) so they will sit well in the egg cartons. Place a piece of torn lettuce on each ‘cup’ before adding the egg halves. Fill egg halves (I put my yolk mixture in a baggie, snip the corner and use like a pastry bag). Insert a toothpick in each egg for ease in serving/plucking out the filled eggs. Garnish with paprika or whatever you like. Close the cartons, pop in a cooler with some ice and GO. When you open the cartons to serve, the opened cartons fit one into the other (see pic above). Cleanup is as easy as closing and tossing the empty cartons. You can fancy these up with frilly toothpicks, ruffly lettuce or other greens, etc.

    Dede, this is such a neat idea, and deviled eggs have always been a rather messy challenge to take to picnics. I think this is a keeper idea!!!

    Mary, this is definitely one of my favorite ‘tricks’ – it’s attractive on top of being so efficient. Deviled egg trays/dishes/carriers always seem to ‘kind of’ work LOL.

    This will probably join my broccoli/cauliflower salad when my church sunday school class takes annual fall trip to a church camp along the New River in October.

    I really like the idea.

    It works so well and the containers being disposable is perfect for a trip like that, David.

    I did this for the 4th of July and it worked out so well and looked so nice I’ve been saving egg cartons just for this ever since. Gonna do up a batch for tomorrow.

    Because of the possibility of salmonella, if I was going to use egg cartons to transport deviled eggs, I would wash the egg carton very carefully with dish detergent and hot water before lining the cups with lettuce.

    p.s. It is a really cute idea, though 🙂

    Helen, that’s why it says “well washed” after egg cartons 😉

    I think that this is a great idea too.We also figured out that tiny individual chive blossoms made the most beautiful garnish! 😉
