This well-loved food wows guests at the holidays. Designers have even created specially designed carrying dishes and plates. The deli section of the grocery store prepares packaged deviled eggs, and they can be found in some convenience stores, too.

Other names for this devilish dish include eggs mimosa, stuffed egg, salad eggs or dressed egg. To make them, hard-boiled eggs are shelled, cut in half and filled with the hard-boiled egg’s yolk. The yolk is mixed with other ingredients such as mayonnaise and mustard.

Eggs are quite versatile when it comes to making simple dishes elegant. The deviled egg is another example of taking the humble egg and transforming it with one or two simple ingredients. The final result is centerpiece-worthy. Colorful relishes, spicy peppers, pimentos or savory herbs, elevate deviled eggs. Additionally, the variety offers entirely new flavor profiles demonstrating just how delicious this family favorite can be.

Other approaches make them a little more creamy with sour cream. Or, a bit more tart with added vinegar. It’s possible to please just about every palate can be satisfied. From the traditional paprika garnish to crunchy bacon, or a little caviar, anchovy or herring, there is some devilish experimenting any cook can do.

As these are a favorite I must admit to liking my homemade recipe the best. This recipe can be elevated with cucumber garnish or a grape tomato. Bacon is also really good. I have yet to try the avocado mix in though I’ve seen plenty of recipes for it. However, I have tried them with pickle relish and/or dill. These do not make my try again list but hey if you like it go for it. I also think chives make a good garnish while adding to the flavor. This is a great way to use those hard boiled Easter eggs. It almost always makes my list for entertaining. Including game days. They are easy to make and store well for a day or two in the fridge.

The first known print reference referring to the term “deviled” about food, appeared in 1786. It was in the 19th century that it came to be used when referring to spicy or zesty food, including eggs prepared with mustard, pepper or other ingredients stuffed in the yolk cavity.
