This contest promises to be the most egg-citing of all the Virginia Egg Council sponsored recipe contests, because let's face it - who doesn't love Deviled Eggs? Every southerner has the best recipe and they all want to crow about it. Whether filled with the traditional egg yolk and mayo combo or something more trendy, the sky's the limit when it comes to presentation, flavor, ethnicity and even color. The possibilities are endless so we're expecting Virginia's clever cooks (the best in the nation) to come up with some really special creations to prove why these Tasty Little Devils are the most popular on a buffet table! Interested contestants should contact their local county fair for details.
