Serves 12 eggs     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Pimento Cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • Paprika
  • chopped fresh chives

Instructions

  1. Place the eggs in a large saucepan with enough water to just cover the eggs. Place the pan over medium high heat and bring the water to a boil. Turn the water to simmer and cook the eggs for 10 minutes. Immediately transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water and cool for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Carefully, peel the eggs and slice in half from top to bottom. Remove the yolks and place in a large bowl. Add the mayonnaise, pimento cheese and Tabasco to the yolks.
  3. Using a hand mixer, beat the egg yolks until creamy and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Fill a pastry bag with the egg yolk mixture (or a zip top bag with the corner snipped off) and pipe about a tablespoon of the mixture into the well of the egg. Repeat until all the eggs are filled.
  5. Arrange the eggs on a platter and sprinkle with paprika. Garnish with chives if desired.
