Yeah, right. So it was easter over the weekend and I have this serious affinity for eggs. I went out on a gourmet limb with my little devils and used a recipe (So Southern!) for Pimiento Cheese Eggs. Seriously. I can’t even say if I ever ate pimiento cheese before or not, but now I have.
6 hard cooked eggs, cut in half, yolks removed and mashed in
1/4 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar
1 T finely diced pimientos
2 T olive oil mayo
2 t dijon mustard
1 T finely diced sweet onions (Vidalia or Walla Walla type)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
paprika for garnish (or a pimiento!)
combine thoroughly the mashed yolds, with cheddar, pimiento, mayo, mustard and onions. Salt and pepper to taste. I piped them into the egg whites with a pastry bag and star tip but a spoon works too.
Dust on paprika or lay on a pimiento.
