Most of us enjoy deviled eggs during the major holidays or at parties. Don't just save them for special occasions.

Think about it... they can "decorate" the devil egg with cookie decorating tools, but they're much healthier than cookies. It's a great way to get kids to eat their eggs!

Eggs are a good source of protein and minimal saturated fat, despite the bad reputation they had for a while.
