Egg Hunts

Take the family to a timeless Easter classic: egg hunts. There are two options available to Jackson folk. Start the festivities at the Jackson Whole Grocer’s egg-stra special Easter egg hunt. Kids hunt for 300 eggs hidden throughout the store, with a special section for the five and under crowd. Easter specials are going on throughout the store. This egg hunt runs from 8:30-9:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 20. Follow up the fun on the Town Square, with the 51st Annual Egg Hunt. Over 5,000 eggs filled with candy and toys will be hidden on the Town Square. Kids ages 1-8 are welcome, and a few lucky winners will go home with grand prizes. After the egg hunt, walk over to the Twin Cinema on Pearl Street for a free showing of The LEGO Movie 2 and Smallfoot at 11:15 a.m. Easter egg hunt starts at 10 a.m.

Recipe

At the center of many Easter spreads will be a platter of deviled eggs. One of my old favorites from Spur Restaurant & Bar were the deviled eggs. These perfect bites were a unique rendition of classic deviled eggs. Today we share this past recipe with Dishing readers, so that you might include it in your Easter spread. Enjoy!spur deviled eggs

Spur Restaurant & Bar’s Deviled Eggs

Ingredients

  • 12 eggs, hard-boiled
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Aleppo chile, ground
  • Kosher salt to taste

Instructions

  • Peel and cut the eggs in half.
  • Remove the yolks, and place in the bowl of a food processor with the mayonnaise, sour cream, Dijon mustard and Aleppo chile.
  • Mix until all ingredients are incorporated well (make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl).
  • Scrape mixture into a pastry bag (a plastic bag with the corner cut also works), and pipe into the eggs.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning with salt.

Aleppo chile is a Syrian chile pepper that is available in some specialty markets or online at Amazon.com. Guadjillo chile powder would be the best substitute if not available.
