Throughout the year, I’m on the hunt for delicious bites that I can make during the holidays. Since the last quarter of the year gets so crazy with everybody’s schedules, parties, holidays and life, I like to keep things as simple as possible.
It’s easy to find classic recipes, but I hate always serving appetizers and meals that are common. I love to find or think or food that everybody will love and enjoy but won’t be eating at every single holiday party they attend.
With a few parties on my calendar, I was searching my refrigerator trying to come up with ideas of what to serve. As I glanced around, I saw a bunch of random items including Price*s® Southern Style Jalapeno Pimiento cheese and eggs. I instantly knew I wanted to serve them together. I love a good appetizer that has a kick and Price’s has just that. Deviled eggs are a common party good but I wanted to take them to the next level and serve pimiento cheese deviled eggs. Sounds delicious, right? They were!
I love that the recipe was with items that I already had in my refrigerator, no need to leave the house and make a trip to the grocery store. Even if you did have to leave for the store, the ingredients are minimal and won’t break the bank.
Let’s get started. I usually only boil half a dozen eggs (which would make 12 deviled eggs), because there is always other appetizers being passed around. Use your best judgement on how many you think you will need.
Once your eggs are boiled, halve them and take out the boiled yolk. You can either toss the yolk or use them in your pimiento cheese mixture. I like to keep mine and mix it in the pimiento cheese so it adds more substance and is more filling.
I mixed in a cup of Price*s® Southern Style jalapeno pimiento cheese and then filled the boiled eggs. To add a different texture and a bit of color, I chopped up one small red bell pepper and added it to the mixture. Since every good deviled egg needs to be topped with something, I decided okra would be the perfect ingredient. The combination of the egg, pimiento cheese and okra was divine! The jalapeno cheese definitely has a kick to it so if you can’t handle spicy foods, then opt for the regular pimiento cheese. It would be a great idea to even serve both to give your guests options.
Pimiento cheese was always one of those foods that my mom has in the refrigerator when I was younger, it was something we ate often. It brings back tons of memories of my childhood and love being able to incorporate it in a fun appetizer that can be used year round! If you’re going to make this recipe, head to your local Walmart and grab a couple containers for Price’s Pimiento Cheese. (Head straight to the refrigerated section, near the cream cheese to find pimiento cheese.)
Do you and your family eat pimiento cheese?
