Zesty Deviled Eggs

I have been making these for years… I like deviled eggs and this recipe, with a little horseradish and Cheddar cheese in it, has a little twist to make it different. If I’m making a buffet I usually try to include deviled eggs… they go with virtually everything and they’re easy and cheap to make.


When you chop the fresh parsley…I use my mini chopper… it seems to get the parsley finer than I can hand chopping with a knife…. and I think the parsley needs to be finely chopped for this recipe.

If I can't find really finely shredded cheddar, I put it into my mini chopper for a few pulses.

In fact, I chop the parsley, cheddar cheese and egg yolks separately in the mini chopper dumping each into a bowl.  Then I mix them up in the bowl and then dump them in the mini chopper again for a few pulses, it gets them very fine and well mixes... the finer the easier it is to put the mixture through a decorator bag or tool (if you use one).

For mayonnaise, I always use Hellmans… any brand will work… I just like Hellmans the best.

This recipe is easily cut in half if you want less eggs.

Try these.. they're delicious!
