Creative Uses for Deviled Egg Trays

Instead of having devilled egg trays lying around gathering dust, put them to creative use around the house. Devilled eggs are appetizers made by spooning a mixture of boiled egg yolks and herbs into boiled egg white "cups." The devilled egg tray holds these egg wonders in place and has indentations made into it for this purpose. Use devilled egg trays to hold trinkets, coating batters while frying and as fondue cups.

Coating and Breading Food

The shallow indented cups of devilled egg trays make them ideal for coating and breading foods to be deep fried. Use half of the tray to dip foods in eggs or milk and the other half to coat the wet food in breadcrumbs or flour. Since the indentations are deep enough to hold liquids and dry breadcrumbs, there is no mess while coating foods for deep frying. Clean up is easy, since there is only one dish to wash instead of two or more bowls used for breading.

Jewellery Holder

The indentations in a devilled egg tray make it the perfect accessory on your dresser,since it can hold small earrings, trinkets and pins. Since most devilled egg trays have 12 bowls or cups, you can use each to store a different pair of earrings and have easy access to them, instead of rummaging through a jewellery box where pairs get mixed up. Devilled egg trays come in a glossy ceramic finish or in glass, so they do not look awkward on a dresser.

Sushi Server

Sushi pieces are nearly the same size as half an egg. Serve individual sushi in half of the tray bowls, along with dipping sauces in the other half. Serve accompaniments for the sushi like wasabi, edamame beans, sesame seeds, hot sauce and soy sauce in devilled egg trays for easy distribution and attractive presentation. You can also serve halved boiled eggs as an accompaniment to sushi. Serve one tray per guest so they have their own personalised sushi platter.

Condiment Tray

Condiments are served in small cups and bowls, and devilled egg trays make the perfect serving dish. Use the tray to serve pickled olives, nuts, small pieces of fruit and pickled vegetables. You can also use it to serve chutneys and sauces that are accompaniments for your main course. Divide the tray in three sections and pour each sauce in one section for a colourful presentation. You can also serve a variety of bread croutons to go along with soups.
