Deviled Eggs with Green Olive Tapenade and Crispy Capers


If your family is anything like mine was growing up, this time of year you end up with a lot of hard boiled eggs in the fridge. Or, if you don't have kids and aren't dying eggs, you're trying to figure out some fun appetizers to serve at your Easter brunch or dinner. Look no further than these deviled eggs. The salty olive tapenade and capers are a delightful pairing with the creamy egg filling. Display them on a serving platter with fresh-cut veggies and crackers and you've got a spread that will wow your crowd!



1. Combine tapenade ingredients in a food processor until almost smooth. Set aside. 


2. Halve the hard boiled eggs and scoop the yolks into a mixing bowl. Mash the yolks with the remaining deviled egg ingredients. Scoop or pipe the filling back into the egg halves. 





3. Heat canola oil in a small skillet over high heat. Fry the capers until crisp; drain on paper towels. 



4. Garnish the eggs with tapenade, crispy capers and chopped parsley.
