While it may be surprising that this simple appetizer or side dish has its own platter (which makes a great bridal shower or wedding gift for spring brides), it’s no wonder this party mainstay is so popular – and varied. Deviled eggs are served in countries all over the world from Italy, Germany and Hungary to France, Russia and the Netherlands. They may be called stuffed eggs, picnic eggs, Russian eggs, dressed eggs or eggs mimosa. Adventurous cooks and chefs appreciate their versatility with unique flavors and ingredients, such as Indian, Asian, Latino and Italian spices and seasonings – even chopped vegetables, shrimp, ham and bacon.
