You "Might be a Southern Lady" if...you have deviled egg plates for every occasion--egg plates for all the major holidays, egg plates to-go, and fancy, high-fallutin' egg plates--they are all de rigueur!
Southerners love deviled eggs. The deviled egg is the perfect party food and a beloved staple at Southern events. Nobody can eat just one...they are most definitely the first food to go at a party! Whether you are attending a baby shower or a bridal shower, a picnic, tailgating party, funeral reception, or potluck meal...if you want to be the belle of the buffet, show up with deviled eggs!
Southern ladies have recipes for all kind of deviled eggs--crab stuffed, Tex Mex, Tomato Basil, et cetera. Last night I prepared some deviled eggs, using a very simple recipe...
1 dozen eggs
Grey Poupon Coarse Ground Mustard
Salt and Pepper
I boiled the eggs, let them cool, then peeled and sliced them in half. I scooped out the yolk into a large bowl and added the mayo, mustard, relish, and salt and pepper. I didn't add a certain amount, just what I thought tasted good! And, just 'cuz I like it, I sprinkled paprika on top of each one.
I served Harney Tea's African Autumn tea with our supper...it's the perfect beverage for this time of year. I LOVE this tea!
My OOTN: Black tee, with black leggings, and an autumn half-apron from my "Prissy Apron Collection." And...pearls, of course!
Etiquette tip: How to eat a deviled egg:
Deviled eggs are finger foods and only served at Buffets, Picnics, Tailgates, and other informal casual settings. When eating finger foods, remember to follow the three-finger rule...Use the thumb, middle, and index fingers when picking up the food with your fingers.
If you are standing up at an event, sit your beverage on a nearby table and and hold your plate with your palm underneath. Take a couple of bites of the egg...don't put the whole thing in your mouth at once and please don't slurp out the yolk--Lord have mercy, that would be tacky!
I'm busy today getting my Halloween treats together for the youngins on Wednesday. Y'all have a great week!!!
