The Best Deviled Eggs Come From An Unlikely Source
By Chandler Phillips
Deviled eggs can be traced back to ancient Rome, and the recipe has evolved over time and into the present day. As cooks continue to experiment with the dish, we've found one ingredient that's guaranteed to yield the best deviled eggs.
If you want amazing deviled eggs, opt for duck eggs instead of regular chicken eggs. Though both chicken and duck eggs are nutritious, the higher fat and protein in duck eggs make them lower-carb, calorie-dense, and nutrient-rich.
Additionally, the deep, dark-yellow yolk of duck eggs has more flavor than chicken eggs, as the high-fat yolk imparts a rich umami flavor. Duck eggs are bigger than chicken eggs, which can cause a problem in other recipes, but they’re perfect for large and delicious deviled eggs.
