National Deviled Egg Day features a favorite hors-d’oeuvre or side dish for parties, holidays, family reunions and potluck dinners. Deviled eggs are the star of the show each year on November 2nd.
This well-loved food wows guests during 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, shell hard-boiled eggs, cut them in half, and scoop out the yolk. The yolk is mixed with other ingredients such as mayonnaise and mustard and then added back into the white. The possibilities are endless!
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 steals the show. Colorful relishes, spicy peppers, pimentos or savory herbs, elevate deviled eggs to a spectacular and tasty morsel. 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. Depending on how you make them, it may be possible to satisfy just about every palate. From the traditional paprika garnish to crunchy bacon, or a little caviar, anchovy or herring, there is some devilish experimenting any cook can do.
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.
