WoodRuffs Cafe

On today's Roadfood of the Day, 3/31/12, if you go to the picture of the menu board,
The Cold Plate is listed as having 'Angel Eggs'.

I am guessing these are what Deviled Eggs are normally called.
Is this a regional thing in VA, or something the owners came up with?

I have not heard that before, or, are they something altogether different?

    It is also possible that they are this:
     
    Angel Eggs
    6 eggs
    1 (6 1/2 oz can) water packed tuna; drained
    2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
    1 tablespoon onion, minced
    1 tablespoon pimento, chopped
    4 tablespoons mayo
    1 pinch dry mustard
    1 pinch sage
    Black pepper
     
    Cook eggs, cool, remove shells. Cut in half crosswise, remove yolks and discard (or mix them in the tuna salad). Mix together tuna, pickle, onion, pimento, mayo and seasonings.  Stuff each half with tuna mixture. Sprinkle with paprika.

    Tumbleweed365-
    That is my photo and I never noticed it before.  Thanks for pointing it out.  The owners of Woodruff's are very devout Christians and it would be my guess that it is just their term for deviled eggs.

    Similarly, Fishnet Seafood in South Carolina calls their deviled crab, Jesus crab.

    Thanks for the answers, it sorta had me wondering.
    The recipe for the Angle Eggs sounds good, but I would substitute crab!

    Can we even find a 6 1/2 ounce can of tuna any more?  All the old standard recipes are messed up!

    I pulled out one of my Mom's recipes and it said to use a #2 can of pineapple in it.
    That stopped me in my tracks for a while!

    I have a bunch of recipes that have the re- configurations of the math scribbled on them.

    I have an old Watkins cookbook from the late 30's or early 40's (don't remember offhand)  that has a recipe stating:  "Start with 5 cents worth of macaroni...."

    A #2 can is about 20 oz., as opposed to a #303 can, which was about 16 oz. (now about 14.5 to 15 oz.)

    I made a similar deviled egg last night using Wegmann's tuna salad they make in store, I added relish, not mustard or pimentos. It was a WOW taste!
