When I can bring my serving plate home empty, I take it as a sure sign that my potluck dish was a hit. And if my fellow guests even want to abscond with the serving plate itself (because it’s that cool)?? Well, that’s a whole new level of potluck success for me.
I brought these Bacon-Topped Deviled Eggs, from a recipe on the Land O Lakes website, to the end-of-the-year party for our preschool board. At home, I tend to be a bit of a deviled egg purist – very simple, classic recipe with nothing more than a shake of paprika on top. But for this board party I thought it would be fun to branch out a little bit, incorporating sour cream into the yolk mixture (this made them a bit paler in color, but extra light in texture) as well as scallions (I grew them in my windowsill!) and, of course, crispy crumbled bacon. Dare I say I enjoyed these even more than the original?
We’re big deviled egg fans in our house but I usually don’t consider bringing them to potlucks because they need to stay cold. Land O Lakes sent me a deviled egg server that’s been ingeniously designed with an ice compartment in the base. Each egg stays nice and chilled in its own little well, no more slipping and sliding around. What a terrific idea! As part of their Bite-Sized Brunch celebration, they’d like to send one of these awesome trays to a lucky Cooking On the Side reader, as well as a mini muffin pan and two-tier server (these items, from Crate and Barrel and Williams-Sonoma, are valued at more than $100).
