You might have stuffed eggs or dressed eggs at a church function, but you probably won’t have deviled eggs. Deviled eggs seem inappropriate in the presence of God and so different monikers are used instead. But for the rest of us, why do we call it a deviled egg? Deviling means preparing something with heavy spices, such as mustard. So if you like deviled ham, deviled crab or deviled eggs, be not afraid, thou are not sinning, merely spicing. Although, be forewarned that the intended correlation between the spicy hot food and hell is undeniable and thou might have some explaining to do at the pearly gates.
