In keeping with the RED & WHITE color theme for Valentines day, I wanted to make a Special DEVILED EGG recipe.

This is the recipe & title I came up with. We love deviled eggs in our house no matter how you serve them. This was my creative way for my special Valentine my husband Dan.

I took Roma tomatoes, cut them in half, scooped out the center & then filled each tomato with a deviled egg, and the tomato became the red dress. I only did 4 but you can fill as many as you like, my husband went for the ones with the tomatoes FIRST.

Said they not only looked nice but tasted great too.
