Recipe StoryIt’s almost unheard of to have any leftover deviled eggs, no matter the occasion. They’ve been a popular Southern treat since the 1920s. By the mid-1900s, plates made just for these stuffed delicacies were common on bridal registries. If you’d rather have a sweeter egg without the heat of the jalapeños, use 3 tablespoons of sweet pickle relish instead.
Older eggs are better for boiling. Some of the white pulls away with the shell when peeling really fresh eggs. When boiled eggs are overcooked, a green ring forms around the edge of the yolk.
