Our annual family camping trip is one of my favorite traditions, and although the basics of the weekend do not change very much from year to year, I do like to spice it up by introducing new foods to our menu. This year we had an impromptu appetizer addition – a “fancy” Hors d’oeuvre most typically eaten at a spring brunch.
My mom was a little ambitious and packed a quite a few hardboiled eggs to eat as a snack throughout our trip. Our second, and last night rolled around and at that point, I think only one egg had been eaten. I decided to use the remaining eggs in our cooler and improvise with what condiments we had brought to make deviled eggs! The winning condiment from our stockpile? Salsa!
Campsite Deviled Eggs
- Hardboiled eggs
Peel the hardboiled eggs and cut in half. Scoop out the yolk and place into a bowl. Mix the yolks with salsa until you reach the desired consistency (I probably used about 1/4-1/3 of the salsa jar). Stir the yolk and salsa mixture well and portion the mixture back into the yolk-less hardboiled eggs. Top with salt and pepper and enjoy!
Campsite Deviled Eggs: Tara Tested, Tara and Family Approved! I had never made deviled eggs before and I was surprised at how easy these were to put together! This is a great healthy snack or appetizer – eggs and salsa are your only ingredients – both of which you do not need to feel guilty about eating. They may not look perfectly put together in the photo, but as we often say while camping “we’re roughing it!” My uncle’s family joined us camping this year and I even got some of his picky eaters to give them a try!
