Deviled Eggs! Hmm I remember these! Do you? Served with Ham , Chicken and Dressing on Thanks Givings and Christmas. It was a tradition in our home! Would you like to try them? Here is the recipe! Enjoy!!! DEVILED EGGS Hard-boil twelve eggs. Remove the shells. Cut the eggs into halves, crosswise. Take out the yolks without breaking the whites. Press the yolks through a sieve. Add four tablespoonfuls of finely chopped chicken or ham. Add a half teaspoonful of salt, a salt spoonful of pepper and two tablespoonfuls of melted butter. Rub the mixture. Form it into balls the size of the yolks and put them into the places in the whites from which the yolks were taken. Put two halves together, roll them in tissue paper that has been fringed at the ends, giving each a twist. If these balls are made the size of the yolk, and put back into the whites, they may be placed on a platter, heated, and served on toast, with cream sauce; then they are very much like the eggs Bernhardt.
