Not So Deviled Eggs for a #SundaySupper Easter

Posted by on Mar 24, 2013 in Recipe, SundaySupper, Uncategorized | 42 comments

010Pretty dresses, lilies and bonnets at church, bunnies, eggs and baskets at home… those are the images I think of when I think of Easter. However, I am the mom of boys. There are no pretty dresses and bonnets. Baskets are not filled with marshmallow ducks or chocolate bunnies. My boys like beef jerky. Cashiers must think I give the lamest Easter Baskets ever, but my boys love them. I do indulge in fancy egg decorating. I have even taken a class on Ukrainian Egg decorating, Pysanka.

eggs1We raise chickens at my home and we celebrate all eggs. I love that the kids still get excited to go out to the coop and check the nesting boxes. I probably get more excited than they do. Our chickens lay many colors of eggs. We get a light blue egg, white eggs and different shades of brown eggs. These eggs are pretty all on their own, but decorating is also fun.


Easter Egg hunts dominate our family traditions for the Holiday. I remember my parents hiding them for my brother and I.  Now, we take turns hiding them for my nephews, niece and my boys. The kids run around in snowsuits some years and some years it is fairly warm for a Michigan Spring day.  What is someone supposed to do with all these Easter Eggs after the hunt has been done? Well in my family, we make deviled eggs.  Have I mentioned that I love eggs? I do. They are so versatile, you do not have to stick to the traditional deviled egg.


For this #SundaySupper, recipes are being shared for Easter and Passover dishes. There are some great breads, appetizers, sides, main dishes and mouth watering desserts. I am sharing my recipe for Not So Deviled Eggs. These eggs are an awesome take on deviled eggs. There is cumin for a smokey flavor and marinated shrimp for that acidity to compliment the creamy yolks. This recipe does contain shrimp, but can be made without if allergies are a concern.


Not So Deviled Eggs


  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon Sour Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 10-15 Small Shrimp (I used frozen Salad Shrimp)
  • Red Wine Vinegar (for marinating the shrimp)
  • Cherry Tomato (finely diced)
  • Green Onion (finely diced )
  • Asiago Cheese (finely shredded for garnishing)


Step 1
Hard Boil your eggs. Set your shrimp to marinate in a few dashes to red wine vinegar.
Step 2
Cool the eggs in ice water. Then peel and cut in half.
Step 3
Put yolks in a separate bowl. Mash them smooth and add in the mayonnaise. Stir
Step 4
Add in the sour cream, cumin and salt and pepper. Stir well then put in a pipping bag.
Step 5
Fill your eggs with the yolk mixture. Top with shrimp. Then top with finely diced tomatoes and green onions. Finally add a dash of finely shredded asiago cheese.
Step 6
Chill then serve.

    You know when I told my, back then, new Goan family in India that we should hide eggs so that kids could go and search them, they all looked at me as if I was totally nuts! lol

    Glad I am not mad after all. haha

    I love the choice of spices for your deviled eggs, I feel like picking them out of the screen right now. =P

    • 3-24-2013

      Definitely not nuts! Im not sure of why the tradition started but we are not the first. lol :)

  2. 3-24-2013

    I love, love, love deviled eggs and I love that you added shrimp to it! Yum!

  3. 3-24-2013

    You know I’ve been waiting on this recipe. Shrimp on top of deviled eggs is a winner as far as I’m concerned. I love the cumin in there too. Nice change up from the usual paprika.

    • 3-24-2013

      Thank you Renee! The cumin adds that little something extra. I love it with the shrimp.

  4. 3-24-2013

    I saw your teaser and have been waiting for this recipe all week! SO yummy!

    • 3-24-2013

      Thank you! The fresh tomatoes and green onions really make these eggs taste so fresh. Spring-like lol

  5. 3-24-2013

    I love the variation on a traditional dish. I have been making deviled eggs for years and never once varied the ingredients or added a topping. I can see this needs to change. Thanks for the inspirational recipe. Have a wonderful Easter.

  6. 3-24-2013

    Shrimp? I’m there, Shannon! :)

  7. 3-24-2013

    I will forever love deviled eggs, easter or no easter! The touch of cumin sounds great.

    • 3-24-2013

      Me too! The cumin really adds a nice little something extra.

    How wonderful that you raise your own chickens. I love the eggs – looks like they do not need any coloring :)

    I love deviled eggs, and your Not So Deviled Eggs look amazing! ~ Bea @ The Not So Cheesy Kitchen

      Thank you! I love my chickens. lol They are just so peaceful in the yard.

  9. 3-24-2013

    I love this recipe–not only because I love shrimp on “deviled eggs,” but because of the other flavors that you’re combining here. I’m saving this recipe for next weekend! Simply beautiful!

  10. 3-24-2013

    Such fancy, holiday worthy deviled eggs! Perfect for Easter!!!

    • 3-24-2013

      Thank you! The shrimp does make the deviled eggs a bit more special for the holiday.

  11. 3-24-2013

    So cute! Love the sour cream addition too

  12. 3-24-2013

    Such a fun and unique recipe!! And I’m still smiling after reading the beginning w/the beef jerky ;-) Thanks for sharing, and Happy Easter!

    • 3-24-2013

      Thank you! Isn’t the beef jerky funny? I swear my Easter baskets look lame. They don’t even like chocolate bunnies. Boys lol

  13. 3-24-2013

    I *love* deviled eggs! I could snack on them every day! Topping with shrimp? oh my!

    • 3-24-2013

      Me too! I could have them everyday in lots of ways and not be tired of them. :)

  14. 3-24-2013

    My mother-in-law keeps chickens and they too lay all sorts of different coloured eggs. My daughter is 19 months now and her favourite activity when she goes and sees her Granny is to put on her wellies and go out to check for eggs. :) This is a very clever use of easter eggs, great combination of spices

    • 3-24-2013

      What awesome memories for her! My nephews are toddlers and they love to come over and check the egg boxes. My youngest calls me Aunt Shannon Who Chases Chickens… lol I seem to always be chasing an escapee when he comes over.

  15. 3-24-2013

    What a wonderful recipe combining two of my favorite things! I love hearing about all your Easter traditions… I bet these eggs are even better because you gather them right from your yard. I am so jealous!

  16. 3-24-2013

    These aren’t your ordinary eggs. I love it! They look so flavorful.

  17. 3-24-2013

    Those eggs look lovely, they would be perfect for nibbles at a dinner party!

  18. 3-24-2013

    Love that you added shrimp to these eggs – my husband would go nuts for them!

  19. 3-24-2013

    This is such a great idea! They look delicious!

  20. 3-25-2013

    You’ve created heavenly eggs, Shannon! Seeing your recipe evokes the same thought as seeing post-its – why didn’t I think of that?

    Your blue eggs are truly heaven-sent unaltered beauty by Mother Nature.

    • 3-25-2013

      Thank you!! I still see each egg as a thing of beauty. There is just something right in the world when chickens can be chickens. Peaceful. Scratching in the yard and laying eggs. The pretty colors are such a bonus. :)

  21. 3-27-2013

    Love your devilled egg recipe! There are just so many ways to devil an egg… They are one of my favorite things at this time of year. In my family we made egg salad with our Easter eggs, and a little bit of the dye always made it through to the white of the egg… made it extra special, lol!
