No one’s ever said no to deep-fried anything — and the rule applies to deviled eggs, too. These are topped with pickled jalapenos for a tangy flavor to cut through the creaminess.

Yolk lovers, these are for you. You’ll top boiled potatoes with your favorite deviled egg filling to make a hot app that looks like the real thing.
