Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

Hi, everyone!
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...
    Palmetto Cheese
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. 
Yum!


What are y'all planning for Easter?  Church? Dinner at your house?
However you spend it, Hubby and I wish you a very 
Happy Easter. 

Hugs,
Babs

I have never ever heard of pimento cheese deviled eggs. I am hungry at the thought of them and MUST give this a try!

I loved deviled eggs! I've never tried it with pimento cheese before. I bet that is good. Thanks for the tip on filling the eggs too. We'll be celebrating early since my husband has to work on Easter.

My sister is the queen of the deviled egg in our family-I'll have to ask her if she's ever done the pimento in it. Great tip about the extra egg-thanks.

WHY have I never heard of this before?? I love deviled eggs AND pimiento cheese, so these sound like winners to me. Yum!

Babs,
Love, love, love the TIP for having plenty of filling to return to the deviled eggs!!! Thanks, dear friend!!!
I'll have to give your pimento deviled eggs a try...probably our first "cook~out" here on the Prairie!
Our son and daughter~in~law go to the other family for Easter. It's "fill a Pew Day" at their Church...so, I'm thinking (after worship) we'll make reservations for two!!! :)
Have a blessed Easter, dear friend!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Deviled eggs are one of my daughter in laws favorites. I will check if she'd like a little pimiento too.

Oh my gosh I adore deviled eggs! The hint about adding the extra egg is perfect too. My son can sit and eat about 20 right in a row and I'm usually not far behind. ha!

Ivy and Elephants said...

I love pimiento cheese, too! I just never thought of using it in the eggs.
Great idea, sounds delicious!
Hugs,

Now I know what to do with the Easter eggs that don't get eaten :) Love the sound of the pimento cheese in these!
