Yes. They are a must have for my feast every holiday, but when going to other people's gatherings I don't see them as often.

And thank you Craig! I am excited to join in some new conversation with new people with simuliar intrests.

Funny as we just discussed this the other day. My wifes family calls egg salad, deviled eggs. I asked what do you call a deviled egg? Thats why it was funny.
The souths idea of egg salad is just eggs and mayo.
I am still waiting for the explanation as to what they call a deviled egg if egg salad is deviled egg?

We do have them at most all family gatherings. But I make them. And welcome to the forum!

I think maybe it was because of the paprika that was sprinkled on them. Back in my childhood, other than the eggs, S and P, mayo, maybe some relish and/or onion/green onion depending on who made them, I don't remember seeing anything other than paprika, with maybe an occasional oddball (at the time) slice of olive on top. Red being the devil's color as deviled eggs were always at church socials.

Different parts of the south, different families. Egg salad and deviled eggs were 2 entirely different preparations, although with same ingredients, in the various areas of KY, TN, MS and AL where my mom's family was. My NC g-mom didn't really cook when we were there other than breakfast. She wasn't a good cook and was fond of canned veges and roasted meat.

In country parts of MS, lots of people still make them for parties, social events, etc., as I learned from recent experience, with mostly older (50+) ladies doing the cooking.

I use cayenne sprinkled on top, giving them some heat to make them "devilled".

Out of curiosity, I decided to look up when the term "deviled" entered the kitchen. It has nothing to do with church socials.

I can understand Caviar in my deviled eggs, but pickle relish, that is just too much.
Really it is what you like, what you used to. People forget that you cannot argue about taste. The things that we eat from childhood stay with us for life. When I was a kid in daycare, they used to serve us chopped hearing. My wife always jokes that it is child abuse.

They forced me to drink my milk at daycare and right afterwards I would throw up. Every. Single. Day.

I can't hate milk but love things made with milk.

I had same reaction to cream of wheat. Even today, when I make it for kids, I feel nauseated ( how do you spell that?)

I'm with you on the caviar. I love pickled herring--ate that as my road food whenever I drove across ND.
