These double-stuffed deviled eggs with crab will make any deviled egg lover happy. The egg yolk mixture includes mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and cayenne pepper.

The crab mixture includes mayonnaise, scallions, lemon juice, and a secret ingredient, finely diced Granny Smith apples.

Apples? Yes! They add such a nice tart crunch surprise.

How to make crab deviled eggs: 

First, you begin with 6 hard boiled eggs. Check out my favorite method for making hard boiled

Slice the eggs in half lengthwise, and remove the yolks and set the whites aside. Press the yolks through a mesh strainer and mix them with mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. 

In a separate bowl, mix lump crab meat with mayonnaise, diced Granny Smith apple, minced scallions, and fresh lemon juice. 

At this point, you can refrigerate all of the components for up to 24 hours before assembling the eggs. 

To assemble and serve the eggs, fill the egg whites with the crab mixture and top with the egg yolk mixture. Garnish with chopped chives and serve.

This month the Fish Friday Foodies are posting seafood recipes for Good Friday. Our host is Sue of Palatable Pastime

Because Good Friday is a somber holiday, I thought I'd come up with something that would be appropriate for after church when the family gets together. 

The combination of the crab and the deviled egg yolks is seriously tasty. And don't omit the apple. It's surprisingly amazing.

This recipe was adapted from Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan. I love anything by Dorie. Because she lives in France, she refers to deviled eggs as oeuf mayo. Doesn't that sound sophisticated?
