{Thrifty Tuesday} Deviled Eggs and Super Cheap Finds!

Thrifty Tuesday will now feature a vintage recipe to go along with our finds, because I love linking up with the ladies at For the Love of Blogs. And, it's Tasty Tuesday over there!

Deviled Eggs Deluxe is from my Betty Crocker New Picture Cookbook circa 1960. Since Easter is coming up, it's only perfect for a deviled egg recipe, no?

Deviled Eggs Deluxe

6 hard cooked eggs, halved lengthwise
2 tsp. prepared mustard
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 c. mayonnaise

Save egg whites; mash yolks and mix with rest of ingredients. Add one of the following:
  • 1 can flaked tuna (ewwwww...I say) with 1/8 tsp curry powder and use 1/2 c. commercial sour cream in place of mayonnaise
  • 1 can shrimp, chopped
  • 1/4 pound crisped bacon, about 8 slices, chopped
  • 1 can deviled ham
  • 2/3 c. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded; increase mayonnaise 2 tbsp.
  • 1 can salmon, with juice (remove skin and bones)
I'm not so much of a fishy person, but maybe somebody reading is! I could do the bacon and the cheese ones, but hmmmmm...not so sure about the others, Miss Betty Crocker. Ha!

Now, on to the finds....grab your deviled eggs and let's go!
