Happy National Deviled Eggs Day!  I’ve always wondered why one of my favorite side and app’s dedicated day – National Deviled Eggs Day on November 2nd – wasn’t during the Summer or at least around Easter.  However, who am I to complain when I have another excuse to enjoy deviled eggs? ;)

The thing I love about deviled eggs is that you can really change up the flavor and even make a fancier deviled egg all based on an extra ingredient or 2.  Be sure to check out my Southern Style Deviled Eggs recipe for my favorite go-to recipe for deviled eggs.  Without further ado, here are some fabulous mix-ins and toppings for deviled eggs.  Be sure to chop mix-ins finely, but I would do so by hand so they don’t get mushy.
