Deviled eggs are a great appetizer for a variety of events. Whether a dinner party or game night, deviled eggs will bring a smile to any guest's face. It's important that you have the right recipe. The wrong recipe can turn your event from success to failure quite quickly!
Remember to either keep your deviled eggs over ice when serving, or only bring them out of the fridge when serving. Since this recipe includes both egg and mayo, it's prone to quick spoilage if left unattended at room temperature. If it's a particularly hot day, keep them in the fridge no matter what.
Increase this recipe as needed, depending on the number of guests you'll be serving. This recipe can also make for a good lunch, although remember that they need to be chilled for one hour before serving. It might be a good idea to make them the night before, so that they're ready as soon as you want to eat lunch!
