Are you ready to make the best crab-deviled eggs? I might be biased but I honestly think this recipe combines all the best ingredients in every bite! Love how the crab pairs so nicely with the old bay, a little bit of apple cider vinegar, and topped with toasted panko crumbs. I made these a couple of times during Thanksgiving and Christmas as Hors D’oeuvre and they were a fan favorite for sure. I think they will be the perfect easy appetizer or snack for Easter, or Mother’s Day coming up. People loved the spin on traditional deviled eggs and the crunchy radish, fresh parsley, and toasted panko just give it that added texture with a phenomenal taste.
I created an Instagram Reel to show you just how easy it is to make these! When you are watching it let’s be friends, I share a ton of healthy, delicious recipes, travel tips, and food guides! I would love to have you in my little community
I grew up with a mother who was from Maryland and every year for her birthday we ordered Maryland blue crab. It was such a treat to sit around the table and enjoy picking the crabs! Fast forward to college, I ended up playing soccer and living in Ocean City, Maryland. I was so spoiled with all of the seafood and definitely had my fair share of blue crab.
Instant Pot Hard-Boiled Eggs Hack
These deviled eggs come together so quickly with the help of an Instant Pot. I started making hard-boiled eggs in the Instant Pot years ago and don’t think I will ever go back. Cooking the eggs in the Instant Pot takes three minutes and the shell literally falls off. I don’t know what kind of magic is happening inside that pot but it works! I have the instant pot that has the egg setting so it’s an easy click of the button. If you don’t have that option set it to pressure cook, low heat and place the timer for three minutes and let it release on its own. Remove the lid. place eggs in cold water until cool enough to handle. Peel the shells and you are good to go with continuing with this recipe.
