This southern-inspired deviled eggs use homemade pimiento cheese, which is a mix of cheddar, pepper jack and cream cheese, along with mayonnaise, mustard and chopped pimiento peppers in the filling. They’re a total crowd pleaser and perfect for any outdoor gathering or potluck. If you don’t like Pepperjack cheese, or are adverse to spicy foods, just omit the pepperjack and increase the cheddar to 4 ounces.
