National Deviled Eggs Day
When : Always November 2
National Deviled Eggs Day is today. All of you devils, must go forth and consume deviled eggs on this very special day.
Certainly, the whole purpose of this day, is to make and eat Deviled Eggs. You can use your favorite recipe, or (hopefully) find a restaurant serving them in recognition of this day.
Make plans on getting your fill of Deviled Eggs on National Deviled Eggs Day!
Origin of National Deviled Eggs Day:
The originator of this day was quite devious. The little devil failed to provide any documentation on this day, or to take credit.
We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
Deviled Eggs Recipe
This is a basic deviled egg recipe. You can do all sorts of variations. Try adding chives to the egg yolk mixture. Or, instead of bacon bits, put a green olive (whole or sliced) on top of each egg.
Yield: 12 halves
Deviled Eggs Ingredients:
6 hard boiled eggs, chilled, peeled and cut lengthwise
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon dry ground mustard
salt and pepper to taste
real bacon bits
How to make Deviled Eggs:
Carefully scoop yolks out of egg halves.
Set egg white halves aside on a plate or a piece of waxed paper.
In a bowl, mix together with a fork the egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, and a dash of salt and pepper.
Fill the empty egg whites with the egg yolk mixture.
Sprinkle a few bacon bits on top of each egg.
Sprinkle a little paprika over the egg for effect.
Set finished eggs onto a serving dish.
