Carrot Crosses for Deviled Eggs at Easter-Simple Tutorial

I've had these Carrot Crosses for Deviled Eggs on my mind for a while now and finally decided to give them a try. They are very easy and I love the pretty color to spruce up a favorite deviled egg recipe.
If you'd like to learn about perfect hard boiled eggs or how to dye the whites click HERE.
Pin It
Peel and wash a fat carrot, thinly slice it on a steep diagonal (a little wider than 1/8" thick).

I just free-handed the crosses, you could make some paper templates to cut around if you'd like.
The bits and pieces of leftover carrot are great for soup.

Since carrots tend to dry out, if you cut them ahead of time store them between damp tea towels.
Add them to the eggs just before serving.
Happy Easter Planning:@)

  5. Nice touch and perfect for Easter. I am making deviled eggs to bring to a brunch, but mine will be tasty (I hope!) but boring, since I don't know all the guests who will be there. xo

  30. This is a great idea, Lynn, since it seems like most everyone serves deviled eggs on Easter Sunday. I love deviled eggs, and the orange color of the carrots looks nice with the yellow yolks. The symbolism of the cross is just perfect for Easter. Thanks for sharing, Lynn, and have a wonderful week.
