October is my favorite month. Hands down, it’s got the best colors, the best food and the best holiday. Anyone who thinks Spring is superior can exit stage left, thank you.
Since moving to Germany, yet another reason October is the superior month is a little holiday known as Oktoberfest (yes I know it technically starts in September, but work with me here). Oktoberfest is a German fest with massive amounts of food and beer that you shove down your throat, all while being squeezed into traditional fest clothing. However, due to Covid, Oktoberfest has been cancelled this year. But can you really cancel a feeling, a spirit? I say “no”. I also say, “I have the ability to celebrate a tiny fest in my own backyard and pretend like it’s the real thing”. Which I did.
And what’s a party without deviled eggs? Especially themed deviled eggs. Enter, Oktoberfest Deviled Eggs. These heavy little gullet stickers are yummy and filling, and easy to make in big batches. Mix in some horseradish to the yolk mix and top with German sausage and mustard and you’ve got yourself some fest eggs! (In complete honesty, this fest was about two weeks ago, but for the sake of the post, let’s pretend I made these eggs then.)
- 12 hard boiled eggs
- 2 tbsp light Mayo
- 2 tbsp cream style Horseradish
- 2 German white sausages, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces
- German spicy mustard
- Peel hard boiled eggs slice into halves
- Remove yolks into a separate bowl
- Combine yolks with Mayo and cream style Horseradish
- Pipe yolk mix evenly into egg halves
- Top each egg with bite sized piece of sausage
- Drizzle each egg with mustard
