The Story of the Deviled Egg
"Deviling" an egg was an afterthought of the original deviling process.
In the 1860's, William Underwood developed a process for deviling ham. He patented this in 1870 and it is the oldest food patent in the system, #82. The ingedients still remain secret but the process was passed on to other meats including crab and many other items. The experimentation on eggs began soon after and the rest is history.
The reason they are called "deviled" is because they have an extra spicy kick in them, referring to the devil as "hot." Foods that are deviled include substances like Dijon Mustard in deviled eggs, to other deviled foods that have hot sauce or pepper (cayenne or other types) that are diced and included in the recipe.

One of the oldest foods around, Underwood Deviled Ham has been popular for almost 150 years.
I remember going fishing with my Father, we would eat Underwood Deviled Ham sandwiches on our overnight catfishing trips. I like mine with mustard.
It is making me hungry just thinking about it.
