The 5 Faces of Deviled Eggs

Your deviled eggs can get a makeover for picnics, potlucks, and parties

They're a classic, portable, finger food that almost always gets snatched up at whatever party they attend. Deviled eggs are hardboiled peeled eggs cut in half with the yolks scooped out, mixed with other ingredients like mustard and mayo, and then placed back inside the egg-white cavities. People call them deviled because the mix-ins are often spicy, or  a little hot. In a way, they're like twice-stuffed baked potatoes. Except not.

You can vary the recipe for these little boats of creamy, tangy goodness to suit whatever — and we mean, whatever — tastes you have. Deviled Egg Recipes aplenty are available for whatever floats your inner tube. Here are a few:
