Easy deviled eggs recipe stuffed with broccoli and mayonnaise. This is perfect for Easter, Brunch, Appetizer or any Party!
Since Easter will be here in few weeks I am already thinking about recipes for this Holiday. The first recipe that came to my mind was deviled eggs. I already made Stuffed Eggs with Radishes and Dill so I thought that maybe I should make my eggs with broccoli. It was a great idea. They came out very delicious. The recipe itself has only few ingredients: eggs, broccoli and mayonnaise. And it’s very simple to make.
To add more flavor to my easy deviled eggs I added a little garlic powder. Sometimes, I feel that fresh garlic is to strong for me, so I usually use garlic powder instead. Also, you can season the stuffing with salt and pepper. I usually omit the exact amount of pepper and salt in my recipes because I think it’s personal preference how much you need salt in your food.
We always have eggs on Easter. It is our tradition. The day before Easter Sunday on Holy Saturday we prepare Easter basket with hard-boiled eggs, bread, sausage, horseradish, salt and pepper. We go to Church to bless our baskets. Every food in our basket has own meaning. For example eggs symbolize life and Christ resurrection. Bread is a symbolic of Jesus.
I love our tradition of blessing baskets. We usually spend time to paint/color the eggs. It’s family time that we spend together. I know that someday when my children will grow up they won’t be painting them anymore and I will just have my memories.
