Almond Deviled Eggs
Meet the Cook: This recipe's one I've used many times for potlucks, during the holidays and several times a month when entertaining. The reactions have ranged from "These eggs slide down gently" from one young man to just "Scrumptious!"
Though this dish is good on its own, you might also want to consider adding it to a salad plate or serving it with soup and sandwich for lunch.
