This post is inspired by this giveaway (here) and this recipe from A Literary Tea Party: Blends and Treats for Alice, Bilbo, Dorothy, Jo, and Book Lovers Everywhere by Alison Walsh.* Speaking of Alison, you can find her on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Google+.
When the author posted in a group to which I belong, and invited us create one of three recipes, I was immediately intrigued by her Cracked China Deviled Eggs recipe. And I knew it would be the perfect 'no cook' recipe for a kids' cooking class that I was teaching at a local children's museum. I love when things like this align. The book is not yet released, but it will be available on June 5th. I've pre-ordered mine already!
You can see her recipe below. I didn't change a thing. It was perfect as written. But, when I described the eggs to my family (who are on a school trip), they insisted that I make a batch for them, too.
So, not only is this recipe terrific as written, I made it twice in one day. If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is! On second thought: I did change one thing. We didn't pipe the filling back into the eggs; we just spooned it in.
You can read Alison's instructions for details, but basically...you boil and dye the eggs.
These were the eggs from my class. The kids did a wonderful job and the museum staff even kept the leftovers in their break room for nibbles throughout the day.
And these were the eggs for my family. They will be so excited when they get home.
Delish! Thanks for the great recipe. I did sneak a taste since I didn't get to try any this morning. I can't wait to try out some of her other recipes. Stay tuned.
