When it comes to entertaining for a football game, most people offer the same dishes. There’s only so much pizza and chicken wings you can eat, am I right?! So, what do you do when you want to wow your guests? I’m all about taking traditional recipes and giving them a fun twist, especially when we’re entertaining. I’m about to share two of my favorite recipes with you, but you might be surprised by the secret ingredient… horseradish.
Sassy Deviled Eggs
- Hard boil the eggs by placing them in a medium pot, covered with water and bring to a boil over high heat for five minutes and then remove from heat.
- Allow eggs to sit for 15 minutes, drain water and cool.
- Once eggs are completely cooled, peel and cut each one in half.
- Scoop out yolks into a bowl, setting aside egg whites and smash the yolks until all chunks are gone.
- Add mayonnaise, mustard and horseradish sauce to the egg yolks and mix well.
- Pipe the mixture into the egg white holes with a piping bag or you can scoop it with a small scoop or spoon.
- Serve immediately with a sprinkle of paprika or refrigerate overnight and serve the next day.

You’ll be surprised how much you’ll love it and how versatile it is.
I grew up eating my Aunt Rose’s homemade horseradish on gefilte fish. She added beets to give it a sweeter taste. It was so good; I could eat it with a spoon. Since she passed, I’ve searched high and low for something similar and finally found Silver Spring Foods Cranberry Horseradish. Yum! Imagine how great it would be with leftover turkey?!
