The whole concept of a deviled egg becomes all the more enticing when you begin to conjure up all of the ways you can serve those little devils~as an appetizer, as the main event in a an entrée salad or as a sensational snack starring all on their own.

To be “deviled” actually means to add an ingredient that gives it a spicy kick like cayenne, hot sauce or Dijon mustard, so make sure one of your ingredients elevates the spice in the filling you concoct.
