Polish Deviled Eggs 4 Ways {Jaja Faszerowane}

In the late 1980s, I was about 13-14 years old. Old enough to be a big help in the kitchen. Especially when it came down to set up or clean up (dishwasher was not a thing in Poland then). 

My parents often hosted dinner parties and prep started in early afternoon with the smell of bigos filling the house, special china sitting on the table, waiting to be polished along with silverware. There were always must-haves, like deviled eggs, roasted chicken legs, herring in oil, cold cuts, pickles and  veggie salad. Sometimes a fancy new recipe would sneak in after my parents tasting it at another party. I LOVED those dinner parties. It meant us staying up late, sneaking food, watching parents dance to the 3 long play albums we owned (Tina Turner, Shakin’ Stevens and the Beatles) and playing pretty much unsupervised. 

Table was set with most of the food before guests arrived, and just the hot dishes were added at the last moment. The feast would last until late night hours. More food was added as the night went along, but one thing was always gone first… the deviled eggs. 

I’m presenting deviled eggs 4 ways today… pick your favorite and it WILL be a hit at your next potluck or dinner party.
