Deviled Egg Recipes You Need to Try

Deviled eggs are one of America's best-loved snacks. Take a tray full of deviled eggs to a party, and watch them quickly disappear. You don't need a special occasion or party to enjoy deviled eggs. Add them to a meal, make them for a weekend snack or ​game day gathering, for a spring brunch, or with a summer picnic.

Even if you don't have a specialty egg platter with wells for the eggs, you can still make a special presentation. Line a large platter with kale or lettuce leaves. Arrange the filled deviled eggs among the greens. Aside from being attractive, the greens keep them from rolling and sliding. For extra color, add some large ripe olives and grape tomatoes to the platter.

For the very best deviled eggs, start with eggs that are fairly close to their expiration date. If eggs are too fresh, they can be difficult to peel cleanly, and you want all of your eggs to be perfect.
