Deviled eggs are always found on Edwardian appetizer platters and you will often see them on camera when the Downton kitchen staff are preparing for large parties.

You don’t need an deviled egg tray to serve eggs. You can make a bed of greens for them to nest in. I prefer to make a flat base for them and stand them on end. Using a sharp knife, slice a small piece off of either end of each egg, then slice each egg in half, width-wise.
Gently remove the yolk halves and place in a small mixing bowl.
Arrange the egg white halves on your serving platter.
Mash the yolks and add mustard, mayonnaise, onion, hot sauce, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
Spoon, or ideally, pipe the filling using a star tip, into each cavity. Garnish to your liking to add a decorative touch. Keep at, or just below room temperature.
If you want a real show stopper, make Marbled Tea eggs, the recipe which can be found in my book Abbey Cooks Entertain.
