Get your boiled eggs ready for these 12 Creative Ways to Make Deviled Eggs!
(You might want to grab some bacon too.)
Is your refrigerator still full of colored eggs? We took it easy this year and only dyed about 18 eggs, and I think we still have at least 10 left. As much as I love a hard boiled egg with salt and pepper (or Cajun seasoning!) sprinkled on top, an even bigger treat is to make deviled eggs. Not only is this great for leftover Easter eggs, deviled eggs are also a welcome guest at all those summer picnics and BBQs coming up! Today I’m going to share with you a dozen creative ways to make deviled eggs from some talented folks, but first, don’t you want to know why they are called deviled eggs?
Deviled eggs actually started in ancient Rome, as an appetizer for the wealthy, although the method and seasonings were much different then. They made their way to Europe in the 13th century and to cookbooks in the United States in the mid 1800s. The term “deviled” in recipes refers to a food that is made spicy. Interestingly, deviled eggs were sometimes called stuffed eggs or dressed eggs at church functions to avoid a reference to satan. (Nobody wants the devil up in their church potluck.)
I love the classic version of deviled eggs with mustard, mayo, and seasoning. There is so much more you can do with these tasty treats though. Check out this collection of creative recipes, and be sure to leave a comment letting me know which one you’ll try first!
