This was a nice, easy recipe to prepare-the egg filling was pretty, the chives a very nice touch. I sprinkled the cayenne on top with the chives. Thanks for sharing! Di

Oh yes; Had the pinochle group over the other night 7 people awaiting to be amazed, heavy expectations, but these eggs hit the spot. made 36 eggs, yes!! 72 servings, I figured 2 maybe four each, then the home gang had put in a request for extras, they were flat out of luck. There were none left, I used chives and sprinkled the cayenne as Di suggested, there were not too subtle suggestions that I could "make enough for everybody next time" Going through your recipes assiduously now.Thanks LuluB

A tasty twist to the regular deviled egg. I used dill pickle relish and the taste was delicious. Thanks P-4!
