Easter celebrations generally center around food. Deviled eggs have been a staple in my families celebrations longer than I have been alive. I have always been amused by foods with the word devil in the name, especially in association with a religious holiday. Eggs aren’t the only ingredients to get the deviled treatment.
Being one of my favorite foods in general I must include a few different versions. Eggs are incredibly versatile and can be flavored to meet almost any tastes.
Deviled ham has also been called ham salad and is generally found in sandwiches or on toast. It can be used in the same places as tuna or chicken salad. As with the other meat salads once you have the basic flavors mastered you can experiment with your favorite additional seasonings or spices.
Deviled crab is similar to deviled eggs in that you make the filling and then place it back into the shell. It’s similar to a crab cake though with less breading and a nifty presentation.
Devil’s Food Cake
Okay, I admit this one is not really “deviled”, but it’s super delicious and has devil in the name so I’m including it anyway. There are a lot of fun variations one can find on the classic decadent dessert.
Bonus: Heaven and Hell Cake
I found this while researching cakes and I’m pretty sure the devil himself invented it…or it is actually the devil himself in cake form.
