Garlic Head Shrimp Boats - A devilishly better deviled egg. When family and friends stop by for those traditional holiday meals there seems to be a much larger array of side-dishes than at any other meal throughout the year. There's just something about Thanks Giving or Christmas get-togethers that somehow breeds side-dishes and one of them, invariably, is that '70′s favorite; Deviled Eggs. They're easy to make and you won't have to insist that your's are the best deviled eggs ever because everyone will already be telling you so! Get on the boat and go bold....and try my Garlic Head Turkey Chili too! It's a great solution for your holiday leftover turkey.

Story
Someone's aunt's second cousin's sister-in-law's neighbor always brings them...and they always insist that they have the best recipe. This year you'll have them all beat when you pull up with my Garlic Head Shrimp Boats! My Shrimp Boats make deviled eggs so much more devilish with a taste that's both smooth and garlicky. By using Garlic Head concentrated barbecue sauce you can actually eliminate some of the ingredients in traditional recipes...and replace them with some that aren't so traditional!
