Deviled eggs are an Easter must-have, and they’ll be showing up on every potluck, brunch, shower and cookout table through Labor Day. Classic deviled eggs are a no-fail favorite, but if you’re looking to jazz up the basics this year, we have just the recipe for you.
Pimento cheese has been on our minds lately, and we shared our favorite recipe with you Monday. We stand by what we said then: pimento cheese is good in just about everything. Deviled eggs are no exception. In the South, it’s not surprising to see this delicious spread mixed into egg yolks for a cheesy twist on the standard deviled egg.
The most common questions we get asked about making deviled eggs are these: What is the best way to cook hard boiled eggs? and What is the best way to peel hard boiled eggs? Well, we like to save time (and our sanity) by using the Egg Cooker. It takes less time than cooking eggs on the stove and they peel easily every time. This gadget has quickly become one of my home’s favorites.
After preparing your eggs, add the pre-made pimento cheese spread to the yolks and give it a good stir or a couple rounds with a hand mixer to make sure all the ingredients are well-combined. Pipe or spoon the filling into the egg white halves and top each deviled egg with a small slice of juicy bacon. It’s the perfect bite of savory, cheesy goodness, and it’s sure to be a hit at your next get-together.
