It’s almost Easter, and I have got my hands full. I have the whole family here this year, and although it is a somber mood, we are all very grateful for everything we have, and each other. With my brother-in-law battling colon cancer, my hubby’s mom and dad, have been visiting him a lot, and the family has been going through a lot, so a nice family Easter dinner, is just what everyone needs.
These deviled potato bites are super delicious, and super easy to put together. I just baked the potato halves, then I scooped out the middle into a large bowl, where I added chopped boiled eggs, mayonnaise, chopped celery, and salt and pepper. With this, I made a potato salad, that will knock your socks off! I then just piled some into the center of each baked potato shell. Now, I am not sure who coined the term deviled eggs, or what makes them deviled, but I am guessing the paprika, because that is what gives it a kick. And the paprika, really gives this potato salad a kick as well!
I really should have made more, because these were the hit of the show! The kids, could not get enough of them, and they were gobbled up fast! I had to remind myself to hold back, because they were so good. You will not be able to eat just one, that’s for sure.
