Can deviled eggs be made the day before I serve them?
Although deviled eggs can be made 24 hours in advance, they will be more visually appealing if they are made the same day. Less than a few hours ahead of serving is the best time to finish your deviled eggs. The eggs can be peeled at least 24 in advance. Peel the eggs, and store in an air tight container, in the refrigerator. (The eggs will smell up everything else in the refrigerator, if they are not covered.) Split your eggs, make the filling and fill them, just before serving.
What can spicy deviled eggs be garnished with?
These deviled eggs are garnished with either sliced or diced candied jalapenos. This adds a bit more heat and some visual appeal. You can also garnish with a bit of cayenne, or other chili powder, diced parsley or smoked or sweet paprika.
