What Are Deviled Eggs

The source of deviled eggs cannot be ascribed to any specific person or geography, but goes back at least to ancient Rome.  The practice of removing the yokes from hard boiled eggs and combining them with spices was very common by the 16th century.  The term “deviled”  appeared in writings in 1786; and it was used to describe the highly seasoned dish.  At any rate, its popularity is high even today.

Book Description

Some say the devils you know are better than the devils you don’t. Well, in these pages there are plenty of both, and all are wickedly delicious. Deviled eggs, a perennial favorite of potluck suppers and picnics, a party food that is nearly perfect in its simplicity and speed of preparation, are basking in a long-awaited renaissance.

Technically, deviled eggs should be revved up with a little something spicy, but these recipes show that they don’t have to be hot to be fabulous. Flavors can range from light to elegant to gutsy to fiery. Fillings can be as smooth as silk or chock full and chunky.

If you’re a purist, take a trip down memory lane with the best of the classics, infused with fresh herbs and mild mustards. If you’re looking for something different and fun, try out combos including blue cheese and bacon or pepperoni and parmesan. Or maybe you want to impress your friends with your international palate by including the flavors of Indian chutney and curry, Italian sun-dried tomatoes and pesto, or Greek feta and olives. And if you love to go for the burn, well, welcome to perdition, where eggs stuffed with salsas or chilies, wasabi or jerk seasoning await the brave.

And if you’re worried about the devil in the details, fear not: here you will find answers to such timeless questions as how to perfectly hard-cook eggs, how to peel off the shell without demolishing the white, and how to present your creations so they look festive and don’t go rolling off the plate when you serve them.

Deviled Eggs: 50 Recipes from Simple to Sassy (50 Series)
Deviled Eggs: 50 Recipes from Simple to Sassy (50 Series)

A single-item cookbook done well, By Esther Schindler (Scottsdale, AZ USA)

Perhaps you love deviled eggs, and can't have enough ways to make them. More likely, you like deviled eggs, but you're a little tired of the standard repertoire. Or you cook for people who like non-threatening food, and you want to throw a little excitement in their lives.

In any of these situations, you might consider this little cookbook, which does indeed have 50 recipes for deviled eggs. These sort of books can be rather lame; I've certainly encountered several of them that have two or three decent recipes, and then two dozen recipes that you'd never consider making.

Happily, this sweet little book avoids that trap. It's separated into several sections: the hard facts (an introduction to boiling eggs and other preperatory steps); good old eggs (the expected batch); slightly cracked (interesting variations); lucifer goes uptown (fancy recipes, such as one that uses caviar); and hell breaks loose (spicy recipes).

The introductory section is a little sparse. While it does provide some tips on cooking the eggs (such as turning your carton of eggs on its side, to ensure that the yolks are centered for easy fillin), it leaves out a few more suggestions that I think are common. (For instance, I long ago learned to make the filling inside a Ziploc sandwich bag, then cut off the corner to squish it into the eggs... no mess, and evenly mixed filling.)

But the star here is the recipes, and they're... they're NICE. There are about 10 recipes for your basic deviled egg, one of which is sure to match the way your Mom made them. (With or without Worcestershire sauce, for instance.) I've made one or two of these and they came out fine. Okay, I should admit that I scarfed down the whole batch and didn't leave any for anybody else.

The "slightly cracked" section uses various unusual (but not weird) ingredients, such as avocado or deviled ham. Some of these veer into the "ya gotta be kidding" range, such as "strawberry cheesecakes on the half shell."

But the author makes up for it with the fancy stuff, which has recipes for deviled eggs based on bloody marys or served with hollandaise. And the spicy variations are sure to appeal to the "if it's hot it's good" crowd, with one recipe using chipotle pepper and orange zest; another is "wasabi tuna eggs."

It's not haute cuisine, but it's a useful little book. If you're called upon for potluck dinners or office parties, it'd be a handy one to have on the shelf.
