    Hi All -

    I have a party coming up at the barn where I board my horse and I'm bringing an appetizer. I really want to bring something made with my chickens' eggs but I'm having trouble thinking of something to make. I want the egg to be the focus of the appetizer rather than just being an ingredient but I don't really want to do deviled eggs, I'd like something a little more interesting! The crowd is pretty upscale so something that I can present in a pretty way would be good. We have a kitchen type area in the lounge but no oven/stove for warming so it should be something I can make ahead of time and that I don't need to keep heated.

    Any ideas?

    Or what about deviled eggs, but with an interesting twist? I saw several recipes recently where the mix involved bluecrab claws, smoked salmon, hummus...???

    Mini-quiches?

    Yes, fancy deviled eggs would be good. I have seen recipes with horseradish..yum! Or mini quiches are always nice.

    Minnie quiches sound good, could you heat up your large crock pot and put the hot cooked quiches in it to keep at a safe serving temp? Maybe layering paper towels between layers to keep the steam moisture down so they don't get soggy?

    It's hard to beat deviled eggs made with fresh free range eggs. But add a pop by mixing with your yolk either smoked spanish or hungarian paprika, berbere spice, ground fenegruk seed or jalapeno relish.

    Scrambled eggs with tomato and onion chives all mixed together is really good. the tomatoes have to be diced up though.
