Delectable Stuffed Eggs for a Memorial Day Picnic!

Pin It

Everyone seems to love stuffed eggs for a picnic, especially to celebrate Memorial Day.  These are my absolute favorite eggs to bring to a picnic.  They are always gobbled up very quickly, leaving me wishing I had made a double batch!

Pesto-Stuffed Eggs

8 hard-cooked eggs, halved
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons pine nuts
1 small clove garlic, quartered
2 Tablespoons warm water
Additional pine nuts, for garnish

1.  Remove yolks from hard-boiled eggs.  Place in a food processor along with the basil, mayonnaise, butter, Parmesan, pine nuts, and garlic; puree until smooth.
2.  With machine running on low, add warm water.  Taste for seasoning, adding salt, if needed.  With a pastry bag or spoon, fill egg white halves.  Garnish with additional pine nuts.  Makes 16 halves.  (Stuffed eggs can be made ahead and refrigerated up to 8 hours)
