BLT Egg Sliders
BLT egg sliders are adorable egg appetizers that look like miniature burgers.
BLT egg sliders are made by cooking hard boiled eggs and then cutting them in half to create the “buns”.
The bottom half of the “buns” need to have a little bit of the bottom of the egg cut off so it can sit flat on a serving plate.
Add a little salt, pepper, and your favorite sauce (ketchup, mustard, mayo, hot sauce, horseradish) to the bottom half of the egg.
Assemble the egg sliders by placing a strip of freshly cooked bacon, a slice of tomato to fit right inside the slider, and a piece of lettuce.
Top the slider with the other half of the egg to make the sliders complete.
Garnish the egg sliders by adding a little more pepper and sesame seeds.
Place a toothpick through the egg slider to make sure it stays together.
You can make these ahead of time, and place them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them.
Blue Cheese and Asparagus Deviled Eggs
Blue cheese and asparagus deviled eggs are upright deviled eggs, with a piece of asparagus poking out of it, making it look like a chef worthy egg appetizer.
To make the hardboiled eggs stand upright, cut off a small piece from the bottom to create a flat surface for the egg to sit up on a serving plate.
Cut off the top part of the egg (1/2-1/3 of the egg) to expose the egg yolk. Remove the egg yolks and place them in a bowl.
Cook the bacon, and then use the bacon grease to cook the asparagus with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Place the bacon in a food processor and blend until it’s crumbly, and set aside for it to be used later.
In the same food processor that is coated in bacon fat, add egg yolks, mayo, Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, and a couple cloves of roasted garlic. Blend together until it’s smooth and pipable.
Pipe roasted garlic egg mixture into the upright egg whites.
Stick a small piece of asparagus (cut to size) into the upright egg.
Top the eggs with crumbled bacon, blue cheese pieces, smoked paprika, and a few chives.
You can make these tasty deviled eggs ahead of time, and place them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them to your guests.
Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps
Egg salad lettuce wraps are a cold lettuce wrap that you can make in advance to your company coming over.
Egg salad lettuce wraps are made by mixing together mayo, sour cream, capers, green onions, shredded carrots, chopped red peppers, and a little salt and pepper.
Eggs are hardboiled, and then chopped into small pieces.
Chopped egg pieces are folded into the egg salad base, and then spooned onto a piece of Bibb lettuce.
You can use another type of lettuce like iceberg lettuce. Iceberg lettuce works well for a crunchy lettuce texture for your lettuce wraps.
Ricotta Cheese Egg Bites
Ricotta cheese egg bites are a simple quick bread and look like small muffins for easy eating!
Ricotta is mixed together with almond milk until the ricotta is thinned out a little.
Whiskey eggs are mixed into the ricotta mixture, along with chopped peppers, diced onions, a little sea salt, and garlic powder to create the egg bite batter.
The egg batter is baked in the oven in a muffin tin.
After the egg bites have come out of the oven, garnish with a little pepper and serve warm, right out of the oven.
Egg crostini’s are a fancy egg appetizer you can make by layering a couple of savory ingredients.
Make your own fresh crostini’s by slicing a baguette, brushing a little olive oil on them, and broiling them for 2 minutes.
After they come out of the oven, spread a layer of roasted garlic aioli over the crostini.
Hard boil your eggs, and cut them into slices. Place a slice on top of the roasted garlic aioli.
Add crispy bacon bits to the top of the crostini, and a few pieces of chopped up avocado.
Ricotta Egg Crostini
Ricotta egg crostini’s are a savory egg bruschetta you can make by soft boiling eggs.
Assemble the bruschetta by mixing together chopped cherry tomatoes, strips of basil leaves, and olive oil.
Toast the crostini’s, and spread a layer of ricotta on top.
Spoon the bruschetta mixture over top of the ricotta.
Cut the egg into slices, and place on top of the crostini’s.
Deviled Egg Dip
Deviled egg dip is a chilled dip you can make ahead of time.
Deviled egg dip is made by cooking eggs until they are hardboiled, and then separating the egg whites and egg yolks.
Reserve 1/2 of the egg whites, and place the rest of the egg whites and yolks in a food processor.
The eggs are blended with mayonnaise, stone ground mustard, cream cheese, and white wine vinegar until the mixture is glossy and rich.
Chop up the reserved egg whites and fold them in to the egg mixture from the food processor, along with a bit of hot sauce and chives.
The chopped egg whites makes the dip be a little fuller, and chunky.
Place the dip in a serving dish, and garnish with paprika and chives.
You can serve deviled egg dip with crackers, pita chips, or tortilla chips for a delicious egg appetizer.
