Deviled eggs are downright delicious on their own, but just imagine how much better they could be if they were sprinkled with shredded mozzarella cheese and then baked until the cheese is melted and wonderfully golden brown in spots. These egg yolks are simply mixed wtih ham and salt to taste for the filling, without the usual mayonnaise or other creamy addition, since that will be provided by the mozzarella.
