    Why is it that whenever there is a Church Dinner, Feast or Pot Luck, there is always deviled eggs?

    What more can I say?

    I think it's because so many people eat them and they are pretty cheap and easy to make. I live in the Southern part of USA and they are at every holiday or function I go to. Personally I don't like them much.

    Perhaps it is a reflection of this; "the "devil" is always in the details..."

      But the French, who are great chefs, say, "Dieu est dan les details," that is. God is in the details. Are God and the Devil hashing it out at Church social functions?

      Indeed they are; how else could One make snails taste so exquisite and at the same time call them escargot or is it "Iscariot?"

    Devil--a culinary term which...first appeared as a noun in the 18th century, and then in the early 19th century as a verb meaning to cook something with fiery hot spices or condiments...The term was presumably adopted because of the connection between the devil and the excessive heat in Hell...

    ...so, what could be more appropriate at a church dinner than to consume a deviled egg and not be harmed - like superman eating kryptonite and havng no ill effects.

    Ask another question, I have more lame answers.

    This is an interesting question, one I never have given much thought.  We always have them at our potluck meals, too, and I think they are good, although I don't always get one because my plate is so full, anyway, lol!!!!!   It might be because they have a mixture of ingredients.  I don't know.

    It's funny because when I go to Satanic gatherings they always have angel food cake.

    That's because deviled eggs are a great tasting food that most everyone enjoys. It has nothing to do with the name itself, and it sounds like you may have just returned from one of those pot luck dinners backporchstories.

    Because they taste great and are a good precursor to the angel food cake??!!

    Because like potato salad, deviled eggs are just a staple of any get together, especially in the south, or holiday dinner. And as you I'm sure have noticed, they always all get eaten. smile

    You are right on target. They're always there! I think some people specialize in making deviled eggs. I was at a function recently where someone brought "stuffed eggs." They were deviled. PS. I love deviled eggs.
