Take time to eat the flowers - DEVILED EGGS

Someone said my deviled eggs are 'retro'. Well, I know my mom never made them with flowers on top! Top your favourite deviled eggs with bachelor buttons or try this recipe (adapted from Saveur June/July 2004).

6 hardboiled eggs
1/4 cup mashed potatoes
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp homemade relish
2 tbsp mayonaise
1 tbsp mustard

Peel the eggs, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the yolks. Mash the yolks with the rest of the ingredients. Spoon the filling onto the hardboiled eggs, covering the cut side of the eggs and pressing down with the tines of a fork. Garnish with bachelor buttons. (Blue borage flowers or tangerine marigolds would be nice, too.).
