Broccoli with Deviled Eggs
1 1/2 pounds fresh broccoli or 2 packages frozen broccoli
4 hard cooked eggs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Wash broccoli, cut off large leaves and a thin slice of the lower stalk. If stalks are thick, slice lengthwise – almost to the flowerets. Place in a skilled, add 1 inch boiling, salted water and cook uncovered for 5 minutes; cover, and simmer 5 minutes longer. Do not overcook – broccoli should be slightly crisp and a bright green color.
Cut off upper 1/3 of egg white. Scoop out yolks and mash together with the cut-off whites. Blend in mayonnaise, mustard, onion salt and pepper. Garnish with paprika.
Combine marinade ingredients. Arrange eggs and broccoli on a platter. Pour marinade over broccoli, refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
