Why Is It Called Deviled Eggs?
During the 1700s, the culinary term ‘deviled’ was used for any dish that was fried or boiled and then heavily seasoned. While we no longer commonly use the word ‘deviled’ for other foods, the name stuck for eggs. To properly devil an egg, you must boil the egg and cut it in half, fill it and heavily season it, usually with paprika!
