This will be the first 4th of July where we’ll have family over to celebrate with us. My parents are coming to the house for dinner and then fireworks with our 18 month old daughter. I am excited to cook for more than just the 3 of us! Here is the menu for the Independence Day Celebration:
-Hot dogs and fixin’s
-The Best Coleslaw ever!
-Crabmeat Deviled Eggs (recipe below)
-Iced Tea (of course!)
-Pink Lemonade Pie (I haven’t posted the recipe for this yet, but Cara has the same recipe)
Here is the recipe for the deviled eggs. A great twist on the Southern Classic! Recipe from Pillsbury.
-6 oz of crabmeat (see note below)
-1/4 cup mayonnaise
-1/2 tsp dry mustard
-1/4 tsp ground red pepper
-16 sprigs of parsley
1. Place eggs in medium saucepan; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 15 minutes. Immediately drain; run cold water over eggs to stop cooking.
2. Peel eggs; cut in half lengthwise. Scoop yolks from 4 eggs into medium bowl. Remove remaining yolks; reserve for another use.
3. Flake crabmeat – I use this:
4. Add crabmeat, mayonnaise, dry mustard and ground red pepper to yolks in bowl; mix and mash with fork until well blended. Mound yolk mixture into center of each cooked egg white. Garnish each with parsley sprig. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
Happy 4th of July!
