Cream Cheese Stuffed Eggs Served with Remoulade Sauce

Fucsia Eggs
I serve stuffed eggs on each and every single Christmas dinner. I remember that my grandmother used to make huge amounts of stuffed eggs. I mean two or three platters. I loved those eggs so much that I used to live only on them for at least three days after Christmas. My grandmother’s recipe was very tasty; she used to fill hard boiled eggs with a flavorful butter and pork loin pâté and serve them with a decadent sour cream and mayonnaise sauce.
I took her recipe and made a few swaps so I developed a healthier vegetarian version. I dye my hard boiled eggs with beetroot juice, fill them with a cream cheese mixture and serve them with a tangy remoulade sauce.
