5 stars from 3 ratings of Barkley's Curry and Crabmeat Deviled Eggs Recipe

Deviled eggs are commonly served at picnics, holiday celebrations and summertime cookouts. I prepare this toothsome egg dish at least twice each year (Easter brunch at Mom's house, and the annual 4th of July barbecue blowout at my place. These delectable crabmeat infused egg treats are the perfect accompaniment to my mother's glazed ham, and always ignite the Independence day festivities in my back yard!

Helpful Hints

  • Deviled egg dishes vary in size and capacity. For this recipe you'll want to use one with 18 cells. If you are making these deviled eggs to take to a BBQ or party, consider using a disposable dish to eliminate the hassle of dish washing, and/or retrieving a pricey dish from your host or hostess. I've provided a link to a set of two attractive, inexpensive and disposable ones from Amazon. This is
  • the same deviled egg dish that I use for this recipe (as depicted in the photo near the top of this page).
  • For large parties or gatherings consider preparing two deviled egg dishes. One without crabmeat will appease those folks who lack the taste bud needed to enjoy seafood.

      These must be delightful. I never thought of making deviled eggs with crabmeat. Now that I've read your recipe I think I've been missing out on a wonderful thing. I usually make deviled eggs to take to my mother's house for Easter lunch' and this year I am surely using your recipe with the crab-meat and curry powder.
