Crabby Deviled Eggs With Tarragon Gremolata

 It’s time to get crabby with these Crabby Deviled Eggs With Tarragon Gremolata!

The weather has been so amazingly warm late. Like, today it surpassed 70 and it’s March 9th! That’s nuts. My daffodils even think it’s later in the spring than it is. Of course, it’s going to be in the 30s with snow this weekend and they’re all going to die, but I guess that’s how the cookie crumbles!

Today I’m sharing a twist on a VERY classic spring dish, the deviled egg. I knew that deviled eggs had been around for a hot minute, but I didn’t realize HOW long. Like, at 1700’s long.

They’re typically made with mayo, mustard, maybe some Worcestershire sauce, and a dash of paprika. The ones I’m sharing today still have a base of mayo, but be sure to use really good quality store-bought mayo or make your own (it’s so easy and delicious, I swear.).

I used mustard powder instead of yellow squeeze mustard and a bit of Old Bay seasoning. We can’t forget about the crab, though! I like to use lump crabmeat, but a blend would work just fine.

NO IMITATION CRAB ALLOWED. Just don’t, okay. If you have a spring brunch or BBQ coming up, these are going to be such a hit. Just you wait and see.
