BBQ Deviled Eggs

We are celebrating National Egg Day over at Foodie Extravaganza......
Cam of Culinary Adventures with Camilla invited the members of Foodie Extravaganza to join her in celebrating National Egg Day.  National Egg Day is actually tomorrow so this works out perfectly for our readers who can get some great ideas for a celebration of their own.  

Let's take a look at what was cooked up for today.......

I took these eggs over to Frank's sister's on Saturday when she hosted a family BBQ.  Thursday was her first wedding anniversary without Ron by her side.  They always had a BBQ on Memorial Day weekend to celebrate and she continued with the tradition.  It was a bittersweet day.  

Nothing bitter about these eggs though they do have a touch of sweetness from the bbq sauce, sweet gherkins and honey mustard.  Total deliciousness.

  5. We had deviled eggs for lunch but without the slightest awareness of the national egg day celebration. I made them with a dab of anchovy paste so they were very salty and savory.
