Are y'all planning on having deviled eggs for Easter?
We'll be having Easter dinner at my aunt's house, and I'm going to make two kinds of deviled eggs...traditional, and some with pimento cheese.
I've really been craving these, and since Easter is still a few days away, I decided to make a couple...just for a snack. :)
Here's how I make mine...
I won't tell you how to boil the eggs...I know y'all know how to do that.
After the eggs are boiled, cooled and peeled, put the yolks in a bowl, mash and add a pinch of salt, and enough mayonnaise til it looks "right"...(like you're making them the traditional way).
Then add your favorite homemade pimento cheese to the egg/mayonnaise mixture...about 1 heaping Tablespoon of pimento cheese per whole egg...or if you're like me, maybe a little more.
Mix the egg yolk mixture and pimento cheese together, and fill the egg white halves.
For a little kick, you could add a little minced jalapeno...to your taste.
Here's a tip:
When you make traditional deviled eggs, does it seem like you never have enough of the egg yolk mixture to fill the halves so they're nice and high?
Just boil an extra egg, peel and mash the whole boiled egg (white and yolk) really well, mixing with the other yolks.
When the mayonnaise and mustard, etc. are added, you'll never see the white, and you'll have plenty of filling.
For those of you who don't make homemade pimento cheese,
let me recommend my favorite "store bought" brand...
I'm not being compensated for mentioning it. I just like to pass along a great product when I find one...and this is as close to home made as I've ever found.
What are y'all planning for Easter? Church? Dinner at your house?
