Sunday Dinner

Pimento Cheese Stuffed Deviled Eggs

Hickory Smoked Pork Ribs
Angel Biscuits



Today is the Sunday closest to my son's birthday, so he gets to pick the menu.  I figured that ribs were going to be the main attraction.  Last night I was thinking about a great appetizer we could enjoy right when he gets home from the Bears game today.  He is there with his grandfather and uncle on this beautiful, sunny, first full Sunday of the NFL schedule.  

What could be better than finding another vehicle for delivering the great taste of pimento cheese?  Deviled eggs make an excellent platform for the rich, tangy flavors found in this recipe.  When jalapeño is added for a kick, well, these eggs make themselves downright irresistible.

Pimento Cheese Stuffed Deviled Eggs
serves 4-6

6 hard boiled eggs, cooled and shelled
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
2 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, grated on small holes of the grater
2 Tablespoons jarred diced pimientos, plus more for garnish
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon chopped jarred jalapeño nacho slices
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Slice eggs in half and gently transfer yolks to the bowl of a food processor; reserve whites on a serving plate. Add the mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese and process until smooth.  Add the cheddar, pimientos, Worcestershire, and jalapeños if using.  Pulse just until combined.  Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Spoon or pipe the egg mixture into the reserved whites and garnish with diced pimientos.  Serve slightly chilled or at room temperature.  Enjoy!
