angeled egg
 n.— «My niece, Sara, and I made deviled eggs quite a bit because she loved them. One time I mentioned that they were too delicious to be called “deviled.” I thought for a moment and then said, “Let’s call them ‘angeled’ eggs!” We have called them that ever since. I’ve told the story to friends across the country, and many now refer to them as “angeled” eggs.» —“Your planning should include your pets, too” Arizona Republic (Phoenix, Arizona) Nov. 11, 2006.
