Deviled Egg Canapés

What I love about Sundays and weekends and holidays is that we get to gather. We get to come together and eat and enjoy one another’s company. How boring life would be without other people in our lives. I would get pretty sick of myself, that is for sure.

For us, it’s not just hosting at Easter and Christmas, but all year long!

We do feel inspired, more hopeful, more loved, and hosting brings us joy. I know in my heart that our guests leave feeling more joyful, because when I’m the guest, I always feel this way.

What is a canapé?

A canapé is an hors d’œuvre, or a small, morsel, prepared and eaten in one bite. They are sometimes decorative on a small cracker or a piece of bread, puff pastry, or a vegetable slice.

And they are usually delicious!

In other words, they are an appetizer, usually served before dinner.

What you need to make Deviled Egg Canapés

Leftover Easter eggs (or hard cooked eggs), mayonnaise, mustard, chives, pepper, fresh dill, and paprika (because my mom always sprinkled her eggs with paprika!)

There’s a good reason you never see a leftover devilled egg or a canapés in our house.

Because they’re that good!
