• Other highlights: It's impossible not to love a deviled egg, in my opinion. I'm totally on board with Kathy Casey in her opinion that the deviled egg is really a blank slate for many flavors: first with what can be mixed into the filling, and then what can be artfully balanced on top.
My favorite recipes are the ones where she plays with texture, like topping the egg with crunchy fennel or crushed tortilla chips. I like also like how she plays off the richness of the yolk, sometimes adding more richness with things like olive tapenade and buttery mushrooms, and other times contrasting with something light and fresh.
Some of the recipes are a little out there (I'm not totally sold on the French Toast Deviled Egg or the Pumpkin Spice Deviled Egg), but no matter what, these deviled eggs are sure to make an impression.
