Deviled Eggs

Also known as stuffed eggs, hard-boiled eggs, peeled, cut in half and stuffed with a seasoned, mashed yolk mixture. The yolks are removed from the whites, mixed with a moistener, such as mayonnaise, flavoring foods and/or seasonings and then piled back into the whites. The word “devil” originally referred to the combination of spices, including dry mustard, with which the eggs were highly seasoned.
