Crazy Squared Deviled Eggs

I love making and eating Deviled Eggs.   Well, not so much the making of them, cause peeling hard cooked eggs can get downright aggravating.  I mean really, FRUSTRATING!!, yes, I did mean to yell.
My local store has some of the freshest eggs around, and as you may know, peeling fresh hard cooked eggs is next to impossible.
I know whereof I speak, cause I've been known to make egg salad sometimes when I really wanted to make deviled eggs, just cause those eggs did not peel nicely. sigh
So when I saw this on Facebook and followed the link back to Food Network,  I had to try it.
Square deviled eggs.

I did change it up a little, I only had 9 eggs, and wanted to use them up before we went on a road trip.   And I seasoned them, my way.
And those 9 eggs made over 20 little bites of deliciousness.

Full recipe follows, but for now...
Whisk the egg whites together, pour them into the prepared pan and bake.
Then in a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, add salt and pepper if desired and scramble, lightly.
Pay attention to the time, cause if you let the egg whites cook too long, you have to cut off the browned bits, before you can cut them into squares.
Process the egg yolks in a food processor, with the mayonnaise and mustard. 
Then have fun.
Cut the cooked egg whites into little squares,

And pipe the egg yolks onto each square

then decorate them.

A really fun and easy way to make Deviled Eggs

ingredients:


9 eggs, separated
1/4-1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon or coarse ground mustard
salt and pepper to taste
paprika
carrot or red pepper strips to decorate
Shredded lettuce

instructions:


Preheat oven to 350 deg.  Grease an 8x8 inch square pan. 
Separate eggs and place in separate bowls.  Whisk the eggs white together and pour into the greased pan, place in oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the whites are set and cooked.  Take out of oven and allow to cool in pan. 
While the whites are cooking, whisk the yolks together.  Scramble them lightly in a pan, just until cooked.   Let them cool, and when cool, place in a food processor and add the mayonnaise and mustard and process. 
Take the cooled whites out of the pan, and cut into 1 inch or so squares. 
Put the egg yolk mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star or round tip.  Pipe equal amounts of the egg yolk filling onto each egg white square.  Sprinkle with a little paprika. 
Serve on a bed of shredded lettuce and decorate with some carrot or red pepper strips if desired.
