  5. Patriotic Deviled Eggs

    To make Patriotic Deviled Eggs, prepare our Basic Deviled Eggs recipe and garnish with red bell pepper stars. To make the stars: 

    1. Cut off both ends of the bell pepper so each half lays flat. 

    2. Slice the bell pepper so the skin is not too thick.

    3. Place a star-shaped plunger cutter onto a slice of bell pepper and press down firmly. If the cutter does not go through the bell pepper, carefully slice it again to make it thinner.

    4. Place the star shapes on each deviled egg.
