November 2 Day of Deviled Eggs

History of Deviled Eggs:
there is no specific time, place or person that the deviled eggs can be tied into. It is believed that deviled eggs were first enjoyed by ancient romans. The term "deviled" refers to highly seasoned fried or boiled dishes and then became a culinary term to describe fiery hot spiced dishes or condiments. It is believed that the term deviled evolved from the symbol of the devil and the excessive heat of his sorroundings. Today's term of deviled refers to a broader meaning and is used to define a food that is dark, rich, chocolate, spicy or stimulating item that contains heavy seasoning. Deviled is ofter used to describe eggs, crab, cakes, and other dishes.
