From Ancient Rome to a Picnic Table Near You

Like many great dishes, the roots of the deviled egg as we know it can be traced back to Ancient Rome. The Romans served an appetizer made with boiled eggs served in a spicy sauce. The dish was so popular that it became a phrase, “Ab ova usque ad mala” or “From eggs to apples.” This phrase referred to typically progression of a Roman meal and was used in a manner similar to the phrase “From A to Z.”

Eggs whites stuffed with a mixture of egg yolks and flavoring appeared as early as the 13th century but the word “deviled” was not added until much later. It’s earliest usage dates back to Britain in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. At that time, it simply meant that a dish had was spicy. To this day, there are places and cultures that call them “salad eggs” or “stuffed eggs” to avoid any association with the devil.

5 Tips for Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs

  • Don’t use fresh eggs – This may sound counterintuitive but the fresher the eggs the harder they are to peel. If your eggs are getting close to the use-buy date, they’re perfect for hard-boiling.
  • Give your eggs an ice bath – No matter the freshness of your eggs, an ice bath immediately after cooking makes them easier to peel.
  • Don’t boil them – Or don’t boil them much! Start with a big pot of cold water that covers your eggs by at least 2 inches. Bring the pot to a boil, then turn the heat down to a simmer. You don’t want to overcook your eggs by cooking them over too high heat!
  • Add vinegar – For easier peeling, you can add a tablespoon of vinegar to the water before boiling. Just be aware that it will make the shells patchy which may affect storage times.
  • Make ahead – Hard boiled eggs can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, either in the shells in their original carton, or pealed in a tightly sealed container or a bowl of cold water (change water daily).
