Despite their retro reputation, deviled eggs are still the perfect party snack. Whether you make them for a casual picnic or an elegant cocktail party, they never fail to disappoint. The major challenge: If you have to travel to the party and bring the eggs, how do you get them there while keeping them intact? Here are four ingenious ideas.
Mini muffin tins or ice cube trays.
Set the assembled eggs in mini (or full-sized, if that’s all you have) muffin tins—one deviled egg half per cup. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, and you’re good to go.
Arrange the eggs in the egg carton cups (preferably a plastic carton) and pipe in the filling, then cover. For eggs that fit perfectly in the carton cups, serve with the tops cut off and standing upright instead of horizontal and halved.
