A Brief History
The story of eggs that were boiled, yolks removed, mixed with spices and then refilled with the mixture can be traced back to ancient Rome. Specifically spicy the versions of this were a common in Andalusia in the 13th century. However, the term first appears in print in 1786, wherein it is referring to highly seasoned foods. The evolution takes place from that point on to describe a food which is rich, chocolatey, spicy, or merely suggest a walk on the wild side. So let’s get wild, as they have for hundreds of years, and pick from an array of “devil-ish” eggs!
