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 '70s 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.
