My recipe of the day is a cookout classic deviled eggs with capers and dill  which I am posting as part  of #BBQWeek. All week long I will be sharing  yummy recipes for barbecue, appies,  salads, sides and cold drinks that you can make for your next grilling excursion on the patio.

Welcome Warm Weather!

Summertime is on  its way! Warm sunshine  brings lots of chances to break out the grills, pop open the patio umbrellas and chill down the cold drinks and watermelon. And everybody gets to make and bring a dish to share. What are your favorite things to bring?

She Cooks- And  Then Some!

You know me,  I would be content to just do it all because I love to cook so much- and it truly brings me joy to watch others eat what I have made for them. It must be that mothering instinct. So I like to have lots of ideas set aside for if something suddenly comes up and I need to have something made in an hour  or two. Instead of having the big potluck #fail of grabbing a bag of chips and a couple of two-liters at the gas station on  the way there.

Everybody Wants to Bring Deviled Eggs-

Deviled eggs are devilishly  easy, and if there’s a sign up sheet  you  will  find this slot gets filled up  fast- not only for their simplicity, but  let’s face it. Eggs are cheap. And everybody loves them!

Devilishly Diverse

I do  love being  diverse with my food, so you won’t likely find me bringing  the same thing twice- but I still like making deviled eggs. So that means having a fistful of different deviled egg ideas on standby- and this one is one of the best- the capers add a bit of zip (in the same way some like adding  a touch of pickle or pickle  juice to their eggs) plus of course, the dill herb.

Herbs & Eggs 4 Ever

I love herbs anyway, but dill is a special friend to any  egg recipe, pairing perfectly to  enhance the flavor. Whether you grow or buy the herb, you’ll likely have a bunch, so be certain to add some to  your eggs at breakfast,  with a sprinkle of Parm and a slice of sourdough  toast. I think you’ll love it- it’s one of my favs!

Collect  the Entire Set!

And besides adding  dill to deviled eggs, I have included  some links to my other deviled eggs recipes below, so you can choose  your favorite to pin  for later- or add to a recipe  box using the button on  the  left  side of the page.
