Easter eggs: pretty decorations yesterday, pretty useless today, unless you get cooking. We combed our Recipe Sleuth archives and found formulas for some of our top picks for deviled eggs in the city: Southern-style with chopped ham from Vidalia, Firefly's version topped with garlic chips, and an Italian riff courtesy of 2 Amys, in which the eggs are drizzled with a bright herb sauce. 

Even dyed eggs are safe to use, as long as they're stained with food-grade dye (most egg-coloring kits and dyes sold in supermarkets fall into this category). Otherwise, use common sense: Don't eat eggs that were "hiding" in the yard all afternoon or that sat out in a basket for hours (see the USDA's safety recommendations for more advice). And even if your fridge is full of uncooked eggs, these recipes are delicious enough to warrant the extra step of boiling.
