Looking for something cute and delicious to make for Super Bowl Sunday? Look no further. Football deviled eggs are a fun way to spice up ordinary deviled eggs, and they’re sure to be a hit on game day. Even the most obnoxious and macho fan in the room will tell you how cute these are (it’s not guaranteed, but it’s worth a try!)…
You can make these with chives, but chives are often inaccessible or expensive. I stick with scallions/green onions since they’re easier to find. Prepare some basic deviled eggs and top it with strips of green onion, and you’ll transform a classic appetizer into the perfect snack for any football game. Click here for my basic recipe for deviled eggs!
Here’s what you need for football deviled eggs:
Prepared deviled eggs…. obvi.
Grab a green onion and chop just the green part off. We won’t use the white parts for this project.
Cut the green top in half…. and in half again. We want thin long strips of scallion.
Then cut 1-centimeter long pieces.
And also cut pieces that are about 2.5-centimeters long. These pieces will form the stitches, or laces, for the footballs.

Prepared deviled eggs
Green onions, green tops only
To make the stitches/laces of a football: Using a knife, slice off the green parts of the scallions. Slice the green parts lengthwise to achieve thin long strips of scallions. Cut 1-centimeter long pieces of green onion, and also 2.5-centimeter long pieces. Place the longer strip of green onion in the center of the deviled eggs. Across the top of this long strip, place three 1-centimeter long pieces of green onion on the deviled eggs to form football stitches. Serve immediately.
