I had one of the most amazing deviled eggs in my life while I was visiting Portland, Oregon at a restaurant called Gruner. If you’re ever in the neighborhood go, you’ll thank me. Everything was unbelievable but those eggs. Swoon. I have made them a few times since visiting and they’ve always been devoured before I can get a shot off. Yes, they’re that good. These would be fantastic on your Easter table (who says the kids get to have all the colorful egg fun) or any picnic table this summer for that matter. When you’re ready to make them, you can find the recipe after the jump.
