There are records of seasoned egg dishes in Ancient Rome, but where does the term “deviled” come from? In the 18th century, to “devil” food meant to cook it at a high heat with lots of seasoning. The dish became popular in the United States after World War II. While it's known popularly as deviled eggs, they're known by other names around the world. In France they're called “mimosa eggs,” while in Romania and Poland they're “stuffed eggs.”
