As mentioned earlier, these eggs are perfect for some Carnival mischief. Want to add a surprise element to your gathering? It’s time for a slight substitution: secretly add a pinch of cayenne pepper instead of smoked paprika. Remember, you don’t have to do this to every egg, just a couple will create a fun moment reminiscent of the Spanish tradition of pimientos de padrón. Carnival is about embracing joy, laughter, and good company. Pair your Greenish Devil Eggs with refreshing beverages, colorful decorations and lively music to create an unforgettable atmosphere. Encourage your guests to let loose, indulge in delicious snacks and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Versatility of these delicious Devil Eggs

This recipe for green eggs is not only fun but also versatile, making it perfect for various occasions, including Carnival.

More fun recipes

Just like a snack table with friends wouldn’t be complete with just some amazing green eggs, here are some other recipes you can have on your table.

  • Garlic Shrimps – a delicious and very Portuguese recipe. These shrimps are full of flavor, and the garlic sauce is perfect on toasted bread. If you want to add a fun twist, you can sprinkle them with fresh chili pepper, it will be amazing and a good laugh.
  • Portuguese Custard Tarts or Pasteis de Nata – another Portuguese recipe and one of my favorite desserts. I love custard tarts and I can’t just have them when I travel to Portugal. So, I make them at home myself, and let me tell you, they are truly delicious and disappear from the table in an instant, especially when they’re still warm. But since not all Carnival tricks have to be “tricky”, in these custard tarts, you can create something different that will delight your friends. That is, when you’re preparing them, before putting the filling into the puff pastry, try adding a tablespoon of Nutella. Then you put the custard on top and bake as usual. When your friends take a bite, they’ll be surprised by this mixture inside. I think they’ll love it.

Food can make a gathering of friends even more fun. Enjoy these moments and this Carnival season to play around a bit

With their festive flair and irresistible flavor, Greenish Devil Eggs are the perfect addition to any Carnival celebration. Whether you’re hosting a themed dinner party or simply gathering with friends, these playful delights are sure to delight your guests and inspire joy.
