Reviews for Pimiento & Cheese Deviled Eggs
"Outstanding recipe! I liked it much better than "regular" deviled eggs. I did not have a sweet onion, so I omitted it completely. The mustard was just a bit too spicy for me so I added about 1/2 tsp sugar. They were delicious and gone within a few minutes!!"
