They don’t last very long so you have to be quick at our house if you want one. WHY ARE THEY CALLED DEVILED EGGS? The first documented usage for the word “devil” as a culinary term dates back to 1786 when, according to the Oxford English Dictionary. It was used to describe a “(highly seasoned) fried or boiled dish.” By 1800, the term “deviling” caught on and was primarily used to refer to the process of making a spicy or condiment-laden dish. Not everyone calls them deviled eggs. In many regions of the U.S., these are commonly known as stuffed eggs, dressed eggs, salad eggs or even mimosa eggs.
HOW TO MAKE DEVILED EGGSFirst, boil the eggs and then let them cool in an ice water bath. Next, slice the eggs in half lengthwise. After that, you will remove yolks and transfer to a medium-sized bowl. Simply, add mayo, mustards, salt, and pepper. Use a fork to mash well. Spoon filling into each egg white. Last but not least, sprinkle with paprika and bacon (if using) and serve. See just how easy these are to make by watching our short video.
