Dress up your deviled eggs with these 10 Deviled Eggs Garnishes ... that aren't the usual sprinkling of paprika.

10 Deviled Egg Garnishes

Now let me just say for the record ...

I have absolutely nothing  against the usual sprinkling of paprika on top of my deviled eggs.  Nope, not a thing.  As you can see here in my Classic Southern Deviled Eggs ...

Classic Southern Deviled Eggs

... I'm quite the fan of a hefty sprinkling of the stuff.  {and like to include a baby dill pickle slice to go along with it!}

But sometimes, you know, you just get a hankering to change things up a bit.  So here are 10 other deviled eggs garnishes for when you feel like doing something a little different.

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Bacon Crumbles

1.  Bacon Crumbles ~ my hubby's favorite!

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Pickled Jalapeno

2.  A slice of Pickled Jalapeno ~ I recommend using pickled jalapeno instead of fresh ... we tried both, and the jalapeno flavor comes through much more with the pickled variety.

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Cayenne Pepper

3.  A sprinkling of Cayenne Pepper ~ but go easy, now!  That cayenne heat builds up fast.

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Capers & Fresh Dill

4.  Capers & Fresh Dill ~ this one was my  favorite.

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Fresh Chives

5.  Fresh Chives ~ My Mom grabs a handful of fresh chives from her herb garden, and does a little snip-snip-snip with her kitchen shears right over the plateful of eggs.  Easy!  {and delicious}

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Pickled Okra

6.  A slice of Pickled Okra ... and an optional sprinkling of Old Bay seasoning.  {or ... as above ... cayenne pepper, if you like the heat}

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Curly Parsley

7.  A little sprig of fresh Curly-Leaf Parsley ~ so simple & pretty.

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Pimento & Parsley

8.  Diced Pimento & Curly-Leaf Parsley ~ this would be extra pretty at Christmas time, wouldn't it?

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Green Olives

9.  A Green Olive slice ~ I just adore the flavor combination of green olives and eggs {like in my favorite Egg Salad with Olives}.

Deviled Egg Garnishes ~ Radish Slice

10.  A slice of Radish ~ Slice the radish thin, and accent it with a teeny piece of curly parsley for a beautiful color pop.
