Where did deviled eggs originate from?
The ancient Romans were known to prepare eggs in a variety of ways, including boiled, fried, and as an ingredient in other dishes.
They were also known to stuff eggs with various fillings, including fish, meat, and spices. One recipe from Apicius, a collection of ancient Roman recipes, describes how to stuff eggs with pepper, cumin, honey, and wine, and then serve them with a sauce made from crushed nuts and spices.
These stuffed eggs were likely served as a luxurious appetizer or a side dish at banquets and feasts. The filling would have added flavor and richness to the eggs, making them a more substantial and satisfying dish.
Over time, the practice of stuffing eggs with various fillings spread throughout Europe and the Middle East, and the dish evolved to include a wide variety of ingredients.
The term "deviled" used to describe eggs likely originated in the 18th century, during a period when spicy or zesty foods were becoming popular. Deviled eggs were typically made with mustard, cayenne pepper, and other spices to give them a tangy flavor.
The dish became a popular appetizer at parties and picnics in the United States and remains a beloved classic to this day.
