Vintage Recipe Thursday - Deviled Eggs

Joy of Desserts does a weekly meme hosting vintage recipes.  She took a bit of a summer blog break, but now she's back.  In the interim, I promised blog friend the Chicken Wrangler (click HERE to visit her) that once she did, I would post my favorite deviled egg recipe. 

It's from my grandmother's cookbook, For the Love of Cooking.

Deviled Eggs with Cheese
6 hard cooked eggs
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheese
1 dill pickle, finely chopped
1 tbsp finely grated onion
5 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp prepared mustard
paprika and parsley

Cut eggs in half; remove yolks and place in small mixing bowl.  Mash egg yolks and blend with cheese, pickle, onion, mayonnaise, and mustard.  Stuff egg whites with mixture and garnish with parsley and paprika (oops, I forgot the garnishing part!)
Yield:  12 servings

What a nice twist on an old time favorite! I will have to try that spin-off on my egg-stra eggs!!! Your blog was the first one that popped up this morning on updated posts, and the picture jump-started my memory, so thanks much for the recipe!

My husband and daughter would probably love these!!
I'm weird, I like boiled eggs but not the yolk part of it, so I don't eat deviled eggs.
Might have to try this recipe for them though! Thanks for sharing it!
