I created a contemporary twist on the traditional German deviled eggs recipe. The cold egg white halves are filled with a mixture of Bavarian Obazda, spices and egg yolks.
The deviled egg recipe I’m sharing with you today is jazzed up with authentic Bavarian Obazda.
Obazda is the classic Bavarian cheese dip that is one of most popular German appetizers and you can also find at every Oktoberfest event in Germany.
This delicious spread is made of a soft cheese mix which is spiced up with beer, finely chopped onions and a flavorful spice mix.
