‘Dill”icious Deviled Eggs are what I have on our Swedish Smorgasbord table at Christmas. It is my substitution in place of hard-boiled eggs with Swedish caviar.
I created this recipe years ago to replace some of the egg dishes that are on a Swedish Christmas smorgasbord. There is only 4 of us in my family. I needed to simplify our smorgasbord so that nothing went to waste and everything gets eaten.
On our table this year was Swedish Meatballs, Ham, mashed potatoes, red cabbage, pickled beets, pickled cucumbers, bread and butter pickles, dill pickles, black olives, green garlic stuffed olives, deviled eggs, fried sausages, appetizer meatballs, radishes, celery with cheese, peel and eat shrimp, and gravy. Granted this is not a proper Swedish smorgasbord.
The following day we went to my Mothers-in-law’s early and had Prime Rib, mashed potatoes, creamed peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, and gravy. Then after a while, we opened presents and played cards. What did you eat? Do you celebrate on Christmas Eve or Christmas day or both?
These deviled eggs would make a great appetizer for New Year’s Eve or for a holiday party. The dill flavor is my hat tip to Sweden. Many dishes in Sweden have fresh dill in them. These are a favorite at my house. If you can find a mayo on the market that you can eat feel free to use that or use my homemade mayonnaise recipe.
