Creamy Deviled Eggs Recipe for Your Next House Party
Deviled eggs are an appetizer commonly seen at many parties and events. Ancient Romans served seasoned boiled eggs to start feasts and large gatherings. Offering canapes while entertaining guests was supposedly a common practice for wealthy Romans at the time.
However, a recipe from 13th-century Spain is the one that closely resembles deviled eggs of modern times. Copies of the earlier recipe show ingredients like onion juice, pepper, and cilantro mashed into boiled egg yolks. It also had a fermented sauce called murri, salt, and oil. The mix was stuffed into hollowed egg whites. However, the Spanish instructions called for the split eggs to be held back together with a pepper-topped toothpick instead of today's halved look.
It was in the late 1800s when American deviled eggs made their appearance in local news. In 1896, cookbooks recommended adding mayonnaise to the formula. The classic recipe is the one that stuck. Since then, this quintessential appetizer-snack has experienced only minor changes.
