Deviled eggs are always popular at any football party so we made them into football deviled eggs.   We took the standard deviled eggs and added a few decorations to make football deviled eggs.  How easy can that be?  And football deviled eggs are easy and inexpensive and that’s always a win-win for us.

Just a few sprigs of chives and kitchen scissors can easily turn deviled eggs into football eggs.  Cut one sprig of chives into three pieces the width of the yellow of the egg and cut another piece the length of each egg yellow.  Lay the three pieces of the shorter chives across the width of the yellow and lay the longer piece across the shorter pieces to represent the lacings on a football.

Arrange the eggs on a tray surrounded by olives and different cheeses for a gorgeous football party platter. These Football deviled eggs could also be the main event on a crudité platter surrounded by baby carrots, stuffed celery, sliced cucumbers, and other favorite fresh vegetables.

I never thought deviled eggs shaped like foot balls. Great idea, Evelyn. You should bring these over to the Super Bowl party. /
