Spicy deviled eggs

When appetizers are a little salty, like these deviled eggs, they are especially good with a refreshing sparkling wine. The creaminess and fattiness of the yolk is great with bubbly.

You can omit the hot sauce if you don't want them spicy. But spicy food also goes well with champagne.

If you're looking for additional mix-ins, try fresh dill or shiso (Japanese mint).

3/4 cup chives
1/4 cup scallions
6 large eggs
