The Back Story to these Tuna-Stuffed Deviled Eggs…
Inspired by my friend Lucy, who made these deviled eggs for lunch one day; she impressed me with not only a beautiful presentation but how light and delicious they were!
I thought to myself -wow- what a nice twist to deviled eggs, and with more protein and Omega 3’s!
Who wouldn’t love them … right?!
And, we have been making them ever since!
For this recipe:
1. You will need to boil the eggs for 7 to 10 minutes, allow them to cool, and remove their shells, and set aside.
2. Meanwhile, make the tuna salad (in the recipe card below).
3. Next, slice each egg horizontally, gently remove the yolks, and set them aside. Using a small spoon, take a small amount of tuna salad, and stuff each egg white. Place each one on a serving platter (like I did here) or in a deviled egg dish. Top with crumbled egg yolks, and sprinkle with some parsley as a garnish.
How To Store These Deviled Eggs…
- Best to cover with clear wrap and keep them chilled in your refrigerator.
- Or, transfer them to a sealed container, and keep them in your fridge until you’re ready to serve them.
- They will stay fresh for up to 3 days.
Easy and TOTALLY DELICIOUS!
They make an awesome appetizer to serve for any party, brunch, or lunch. Make-ahead up to two days. These are best when served chilled!
