Deviled Eggs

Cold (Picnic Eggs) - Cut hard-cooked eggs in half, either lengthwise or crosswise. Mash the yolks, season with salt, pepper, butter, a little mustard and vinegar.

Hot - Omit vinegar, add nuts to the egg mixture, moisten with evaporated milk and refill whites. Cap with large sauteed mushrooms. Pack into greased baking dish, caps up, cover with rich white sauce, then buttered crumbs and brown in 3 50° oven.
