With Spring here (maybe in the calender more so than outside) and Easter approaching I’m thinking a lot about appetizers. You HAVE to have appetizers with egg in them at Easter, right? We love getting the kids to decorate hard boiled eggs but they don’t like EATING hard boiled eggs. So we turn them into deviled eggs for the adults. I love deviled eggs and they go fast, especially these Bacon Jalapeno Deviled Eggs, but we have A LOT of kids this year because my entire family is getting together from all across the country to celebrate my little brother’s wedding that weekend. I’m so excited but wanted to come up with more that can be made with the eggs!
This ham and egg salad is perfect! It makes a lot, so it’s great for large parties and tastes amazing. It can be made so fast too. I would say that you could even make it the day before too. I would just fill the cucumber cups the day off. The ham and egg salad on it’s own would make great tea sandwiches too! You can do so much with it that it’s a no brainer for Spring celebrations!
