Deviled eggs are a picnic and cookout staple across the United States, and a great deal of the rest of the world as well. Families teach their younger members how to make deviled eggs, so traditional recipes persist through the generations. The name 'deviled eggs' originated in the United Kingdom. Other regional terms for deviled eggs include dressed eggs, stuffed eggs, eggs mimosa, and angel eggs. An extensive variety of deviled egg recipes exist around the world. Deviled egg recipes have been traced back to ancient Rome, although eggs at that time were only available to the upper classes.


1. Cooking Tips

A few straightforward tips can help achieve a perfect result from any deviled egg recipe. Add a little bit of vinegar to the water while boiling eggs to make them easier to peel. Eggs can be cut in half lengthwise or through the middle at the egg's widest point. Cut a small piece off the round sides of the eggs to increase stability and prevent tipping when the eggs are filled. Try not to boil eggs longer than 10 to 12 minutes to avoid overcooking. Run cold water over the eggs immediately after they finish boiling.
