Every year, a very niche group of people come together to celebrate National Deviled Egg Day, held this Wednesday just in time for the holiday season.
Deviled eggs, which are a well-known staple of parties and holiday feasts, are also known as egg mimosas, stuffed eggs, salad eggs and dressed eggs. They’re such a unique dish that there are even special plates for the finger food so that your culinary masterpieces won’t slide all over the place during your commute to that fancy potluck dinner you’ve been invited to.
Here are some great recipes to make sure that your deviled eggs are a hit for all your National Deviled Egg Day festivities. A quick heads up: They all involve hard boiled-eggs, which Martha Stewart explains how to make right here. They also all involve cutting the eggs in half lengthwise.
