  • 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.


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.
