"I am looking at this 7 letter word", says Grandpa in a serious tone.

"It has three really bad words in it- unbroken. Yet, the word itself is an acceptable way of preparing some things", he muttered.

"And each letter, all of them, are numbers- believe it or not".

Should be an easy guess?

I'll take a bite at cracking this hard puzzle with

deviled

It has three really bad words in it

devil, evil and vile (or viled)

Each letter, all of them, are numbers

I, V, L, D are Roman numerals and e is Euler's number

It is an acceptable way of preparing

deviled eggs which are hard-boiled and the yolks mixed with mayonnaise and mustard.
