Deviled Eggs

We've updated deviled eggs, a staple of childhood picnics and family reunions. These modern versions are tasty alternatives to the mayonnaise-and-paprika standby. Serve them on a bed of leafy greens or fresh sprouts.

    I made all 3 as part of my 6 different deviled eggs for christmas.The basil was the least favorite; I found it interesting but missing something. If I used fresh basil in future I would go with an italian theme and add a crunch, sour, and hot. The curry was was interesting was missing a crunch aspect. The creme fraiche was ok. I might add a dash of tobasco next time and chop the gherkins smaller.

    Pretty basic deviled egg recipe, not a bad starting point for beginners, but not great compared to the one I have with capers and horseradish. I give it one star for making me google "cornichons" instead of just speaking english and saying "Gherkins" or, heaven forbid, "Pickles".
