Are deviled eggs okay to bring as an appetizer-made with eggs-mayonaise-and herbs to a potluck supper? Thought it might be a good Atkins diet or South Beach diet snack-and something people enjoy but am checking on the approvering of it! Are eggs considered dairy?I have heard different opinions on this? Thank you once again!

    Eggs are, barring any unforeseen circumstances, considered pareve. But there are some who maintain that there may be eggs which can be considered fleishig. I personally treat them as pareve and plan accordingly. Devilled eggs is good for Atkins!! Had forgotten! Add a dash of curry powder to the yolk mixture for a bit of "zing'"!

      Eggs found inside a slaughtered chicken, with no shell, count as meat. Eggs that come in a box are pareve. Nobody counts eggs as dairy - there's no milk in them, so how can they be dairy?

        I like to put finely minced Vidalia onion in mine, as well as chopped fresh dill. Sometimes I add just a hint of Dijon mustard.
