Pimento cheese deviled eggs are easy and delicious.

Pimento cheese deviled eggs.

My family loves deviled eggs and these pimento cheese deviled eggs are no exception.  All Southerners love pimento cheese and these eggs are so good.  They are wonderful to take to any event or occasion and everyone will love them.  Make them for any holiday such as Thanksgiving and Christmas or Easter.  They make a wonderful side dish and are so pretty on your table. Have them for appetizers and you won’t have any left.  You might also like our recipes for regular deviled eggs or give our Mexican deviled eggs a try.

Pimento cheese deviled eggs will become a favorite dish.

12 large eggs, boiled, peeled and cut in half

1 1/2 cups grated or shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon honey Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup mayonnaise (I use Dukes Mayo)

1 (4 ounce) jar chopped pimentos, drained

Smoky Paprika

Remove cooked yolks from eggs into a bowl, add the sharp cheddar cheese, black pepper, salt, mustard, garlic powder and mayonnaise. Mix with a mixer.  Stir in pimentos. Fill each egg half with filling and sprinkle smoky paprika on top.  Makes 24 deviled eggs.  Enjoy.

Note:  You can add more or less of each of the spices to suit your taste as you are mixing these up.  You can also use regular paprika but we think the smoky paprika adds so much to the recipe.  If you have any filling left over it is great on a Ritz cracker for a snack.
