National Deviled Egg Day

Today is National Deviled Egg Day.  You know, when you hard boil an egg, peel the shell, scoop out the yolk, mix with mayonnaise and mustard and spices and scoop back into the white half.  Maybe even dress it up like this:

It is called deviled because that was a term for spicy or zesty food in the 1700’s.  They must have a milder palate back then because I have never come across a truly spicy deviled egg.  But the big question is what do you dust the top with, paprika or Old Bay Seasoning or something else?  Let me know in comments.
