    I'd hoped to save up enough of our own eggs for Christmas Eve potluck but as we've got just one layer, it didn't happen. But our neighbors have chickens so we bartered for some eggs. i just made some really pretty deviled eggs!

    My mom won't eat my eggs b/c she's grossed out by the idea of home-grown eggs. [​IMG] So dumb.

    Anyway, I use the following ingredients until I get the taste I want. Today's batch was milder than normal b/c I used whole grain mustand instead of dijon. Oh well.

    Mayo
    Dijon mustard
    Sweet pickle juice
    Siracha (or any hot sauce)
    Salt
    Pepper

    Mix until you've got the flavor you want. Go slowly on the hot sauce: you can always add more but you can't take it out.

    Well, I did have to eat one to get the whole batch to fit on the platter. It was a sacrifice, yes...

    Quote:Don't feel bad...I have 30 laying hens and we used up so many eggs cooking for the holidays and eating them that I ended up sending my daughter to the store for eggs today.

    I'm adding a couple dozen pullet chicks in the spring...so hopefully we will have enough eggs for the whole family this next year.

    Your deviled eggs sound good!!

    I am one of those whose husband and brothers LOVE deviled eggs but I am still looking for a way to make them burpless (for my sake.) Any ideas?
