If you’ve ever attended a Southern springtime gathering, odds are you were greeted with a plateful of cool and creamy deviled eggs. From the kick of mustard and hint of sweet pickle to the elegant dusting of paprika, deviled eggs are a time-honored tradition.

But just how did this quintessential Southern snack come to be? It turns out, the deviled egg didn’t originate in the South, or even in the United States. The modern-day deviled egg has its roots in ancient Rome, where boiled eggs were served with spicy sauces. As centuries passed, the decadent dish evolved and spread, eventually making its way into 19th-century American cookbooks.

Though recipes have continued changing with the availability of ingredients, the foundation of the deviled egg has remained essentially the same. But with our fresh takes on the classic, you just may find a new spin for your favorite hors d’oeuvre.
