I’m sure you are all well aware that I love me some deviled eggs. For the past several years, I’ve served kimchi deviled eggs for Thanksgiving, but this year, I’m switching things up.
Miso Deviled Eggs start with a standard base of egg yolks and mayonnaise. To this, I add yellow miso, dijon mustard, chive and lemon juice, a combination of flavors that just jumps in your mouth.

The crunch of the topping balances the creaminess of the yolk mixture, and the bacon-nori-miso umami bomb is down right addicting.

Fill your table with baked brie, mixed nuts, red pepper jelly, crackers, dips, and plenty of meats and cheese. But also serve something unexpected like these Miso Deviled Eggs. They can spark both excitement and conversation around the appetizer table. Continue reading for the recipe (plus 5 other Thanksgiving app ideas!).
