Okay, I know it goes against the grain to rename something as traditional as classic deviled eggs. This actually wasn’t my idea.

The first time I heard of angel eggs was from a delightfully quirky friend who enjoys cooking as much as I do. She says her family has always called them, “Angel Eggs.”

I guess they just didn’t like the idea of naming anything after the devil. Who knows!

Angel Eggs

What I do know, is that the name change has stuck.

Last year as we were turning all our beautifully dyed Easter eggs into classic deviled eggs, I mentioned to the kids that my friend likes to call them angel eggs.

My sweet daughter agreed that only angels could make yucky yolks taste this good. My kids have been calling deviled eggs “Angel Eggs” ever since.

Deviled Egg Recipe

Start by making perfect hard-boiled eggs…

  1. Place one dozen large eggs in a large pot.
  2. Fill the pot with cold water until it covers the eggs by about an inch.
  3. Bring the water to a boil; then reduce to a low simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the pot from the stove and place it in the sink.
  5. Run cold water into the pot for several minutes until the pot is full of cold water.
  6. Remove the eggs.
  7. Roll each egg to crack the shell and gently peel. (Find more tips for boiling and peeling eggs here.)

  1. The term “deviled”, in reference to food, was in use in the 18th century, with the first known print reference appearing in 1786.[4] In the 19th century, it came to be used most often with spicy or zesty food, including eggs prepared with mustard, pepper or other ingredients stuffed in the yolk cavity.

    In parts of the Southern and Midwestern United States, the terms “stuffed eggs”, “salad eggs”, and “dressed eggs” are used instead.

    The term “angel eggs” has been used in association with fillings that are sweet with less fat and cholesterol.

  13. They look delicious. Did you know that it's not good to use fresh eggs for hard boiling? They are too hard to peel. I tested this theory two days ago… and it was very true. "They" (meaning some random internet site) recommends 7 – 10 day old eggs.
