Today’s deviled eggs are considered mild-mannered cousins of the truly spicy hot dishes of menus gone by.
It seems that no Southern buffet would be complete without some version of deviled eggs. A true American culinary staple most would be surprised to find that these extraordinary eggy edibles can be traced back to ancient Rome, where eggs were boiled, seasoned with spicy sauces and then typically served at the beginning of a meal. Historically the culinary “eggheads” can trace the practice of boiling eggs, removing the yolks, adding savory spices and refilling the eggs with the mixture became common in the late 16th century and by the 17th century, it was the norm.
