Deviled Eggs are just one of those things that make an appearance at nearly every family function. My Aunt Kathy’s version always gets rave reviews and she insists that it must be made with Miracle Whip and sugar. So if you grew up in my family then you would be used to the sweeter version like she makes. My husband’s family does things a little differently. They make them with mayonnaise and mustard. It’s definitely not as sweet as what I am used to, but they are still delicious. In recent years I have blended the two kinds together and added barbecue sauce for a unique version that I love. I think we can all agree that deviled eggs are delicious no matter what.
These Deviled Egg Turkeys are a cute way to dress up your favorite deviled egg recipe for Thanksgiving!
I love how they turned out! I saw this version from Couponing for 4 and knew that this was what I wanted to make this Thanksgiving.
Just cut small strips of red, orange and yellow bell peppers for the feathers. Then use a long triangle for the beak and another small piece for the wattle. I used Wilton candy eyes for the eyes and that was it! I just used my favorite deviled egg recipe for these and it tasted great! Here is the recipe if you want it!
