While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

Chicago chef Graham Elliot took to Twitter this morning for encouragement on this day of civic duty. "Happy Election Day! Vote, watch returns, cry or rejoice," he tweeted.

At the end of November 2, there will be winners and there will be losers, but alas, there is something for all to rejoice - it's National Deviled Egg Day.

That's not to say the holiday buffet staple doesn't encounter politics of its own. While most can agree that a deviled egg is indeed a hard-boiled egg whose shell is re-stuffed with a mixture of yolks, mayonnaise and spices, the general consensus stops there. Some finish theirs with paprika, some stir in pickle relish or a spot of mustard, and still others top 'em with pimento-stuffed olives. Porcine patrons can even throw a little ham or bacon into the yolk-y mix.

Whatever your devilish persuasion, it's time to get cracking.

What's on TV?

    Mayonnaise is evil . There is only one use for it and that is to kill pests and rodents. It has NO good culinary use what so ever.

    OK – I stand corrected – it is a single quote. Sorry about that!

      Get a life and stop searching news sites in an attempt to point out errors in spelling/grammar. People, even those that are paid to write, make mistakes on occasion. Just read the news and enjoy the free service.

    Oh, CNN. Why, oh why, is there an apostrophe after the word "chefs" in your headline?
