- Deviled egg dishes vary in size and capacity. For this recipe you'll want to use one with 18 cells. If you are making these deviled eggs to take to a BBQ or party, consider using a disposable dish to eliminate the hassle of dish washing, and/or retrieving a pricey dish from your host or hostess. I've provided a link to a set of two attractive, inexpensive and disposable ones from Amazon. This is
- the same deviled egg dish that I use for this recipe (as depicted in the photo near the top of this page).
- For large parties or gatherings consider preparing two deviled egg dishes. One without crabmeat will appease those folks who lack the taste bud needed to enjoy seafood.
