I can understand why we have eggs during Easter. Eggs symbolize life, making sense to me in relation to the meaning of Easter. Yet I have no idea why these stuffed eggs are called deviled eggs. Needless to say, google is a great place to find out the answer. To my surprise, “devil” is a culinary term, first known print reference appearing in 1786, referring to some hot and spicy dishes. Oh well, got it. Nowadays, the term “deviled” is often loosely used to describe foods that are oily, chocolatey or with high-carb or high-sugar contents.
Speaking back to these stuffed eggs, they are not evil at all as far as we’re concerned about the nutritious facts of eggs. Besides, these deviled eggs are very delicious and well-liked at any parties, perfectly served as finger food. The whites are not chewy but soft and smooth, given that you know how to make perfect hard-boiled eggs, with well-seasoned yolks on top. This fresh-looking dish is simple yet heavenly tasty. May I call them angeled eggs instead?
