Overview

Some say the devils you know are better than the devils you don’t. Well, in these pages there are plenty of both, and all are wickedly delicious. Deviled eggs, a perennial favorite of potluck suppers and picnics, a party food that is nearly perfect in its simplicity and speed of preparation, are basking in a long-awaited renaissance.
 
Technically, deviled eggs should be revved up with a little something spicy, but these recipes show that they don’t have to be hot to be fabulous. Flavors can range from light to elegant to gutsy to fiery. Fillings can be as smooth as silk or chock full and chunky.
 
If you’re a purist, take a trip down memory lane with the best of the classics, infused with fresh herbs and mild mustards. If you’re looking for something different and fun, try out combos including blue cheese and bacon or pepperoni and parmesan. Or maybe you want to impress your friends with your international palate by including the flavors of Indian chutney and curry, Italian sun-dried tomatoes and pesto, or Greek feta and olives. And if you love to go for the burn, well, welcome to perdition, where eggs stuffed with salsas or chilies, wasabi or jerk seasoning await the brave.
 
And if you’re worried about the devil in the details, fear not: here you will find answers to such timeless questions as how to perfectly hard-cook eggs, how to peel off the shell without demolishing the white, and how to present your creations so they look festive and don’t go rolling off the plate when you serve them.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is eggsactly the book I’ve been looking for. The author comes out of her shell and delivers more than four dozen delicious recipes that are all they’re cracked up to be. If you don’t buy this book, the yolk’s on you!”
—Dave DeWitt, The Pope of Peppers and editor of Fiery Foods & BBQmagazine
 
“Debbie Moose has created a devil of a good time for all deviled egg lovers from the purist to the truly adventurous.”
—Alicia Ross, co-author ofDesperation Dinners! andDesperation Entertaining!
Library Journal
It's hard to imagine dessert deviled eggs, but food writer Moose serves up three recipes for them here, including Strawberry Cheesecakes on the Half Shell. There are also many variations on the classic mayo/mustard version, "gourmet-style" eggs with caviar and the like, and a chapter of spicy stuffed eggs, including Tex-Mex Diablos. Deviled-egg fanatics may find this a source of inspiration, but otherwise it's an optional purchase. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
