We love deviled eggs and their amazing versatility and adaptiveness to nearly any flavor combination you can think of. If the flavors go together, a deviled egg will be a willing vehicle to showcase your favorite concoction. For this version of Green Eggs and Ham Deviled Eggs, we chose a funky color arrangement and delightful flavor combination for a little homage to one of the Dr. Seuss books, "Green Eggs and Ham."
Deviled Eggs Filling
We love the avocado and prosciutto in this recipe as neither compete nor steal the show from each other. The avocado adds some extra flavor and creaminess, not to mention that these wouldn’t be “green eggs” without it!
The prosciutto gives that salty, delicious kick of flavor without being overbearing or too assertive for the eggs. Finally, the basil is a great herb to add a little punch of fresh flavor to cut through the richness of the eggs.
There are many upon many ways to hard boil eggs for deviled eggs. In fact, almost everybody claims that their method of boiling eggs is the best way. So, if you have a tried and true method that you prefer to use, go for it!
Our method below works really well to get the perfect hard boiled egg doneness without overcooking and making the shells easy to peel.
