People have been eating devilled eggs since Roman times, but it was not until the eighteenth century that the term 'devilled' entered the cuisine lexicon.

Although named to represent the heat of hell, devilled eggs are usually only mildly spiced, and just add an extra bit of flavour, rather than extreme heat. This dish is topped off with a bit of cheese, and based on the brands I used, each portion is about 297 calories.
