Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

Creamy zesty Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs, perfect for Super Bowl and spring gatherings!

Zesty Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

I may have told you before, I have a love-hate relationship with eggs.

I love scrambles, omelets, and frittatas. I hate fried eggs, sunny-side-up eggs, and hollandaise sauce… And I despise hard boiled eggs. (Passionately.)

It’s one of those weird personal problems that I can’t quite explain. Sometimes even the aroma of eggs puts me on edge.

In fact, it’s common to hear someone in my house say, “Oh yeah, well you smell like eggs!” when they want to tease another member of the family. As if smelling like eggs is the worst possible disgrace.

Zippy Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

However, deviled eggs are another story.

I do realize they are made from hard boiled eggs. Yet, in my mind (and to my tastebuds) something magical happens when you take those stinky yolks and blend them with creamy ingredients, herbs, and spices.

Then they become decadent and zesty. Something soft and comforting I want to sink my teeth into.

Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

We love playing with filling options in deviled eggs. Today’s Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs are absolutely one of my favorites.

I took the yolks and blended them with cream cheese, mayo, herbs, spices, shredded cheese, and pimentos to make a creamy Pimento Cheese filling.

The silky yolks provide a luxurious quality to the Pimento Cheese, making it even more sumptuous than normal.

How to Make Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

I filled the egg whites with the Pimento Cheese filling and topped the deviled eggs with fresh dill and chives.

These Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs are hard to resist. They offer the down-home qualities of both classic deviled eggs and pimento cheese in one perfect bite!

Easy Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

In fact, Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs would make a fabulous snack to serve at your Super Bowl party this year along with chicken wings and roasted red pepper dip.

Or make them for spring parties that are just around the corner!
