Hatch Plans To Up Your Deviled Egg Game


Isn't it funny how people eat deviled eggs on Easter? The delicious, hard-boiled appetizer may have a name that conjures thoughts of Satan — not really, they're called "deviled" because of the scooped-out yolk — but they are a reliable staple for family Easter celebrations. And if you are in my family, they appear at pretty much every family gathering in which my sister-in-law is required to bring a dish. (Hers are delicious.)

If you're tasked with bringing a dish to Easter dinner, go the easy route and bring these suckers. But just because deviled eggs are easy to make, it doesn't mean you have to skimp on the creativity. Here are ten recipes to help you up your deviled egg game.
