Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs

2011 August 18

The evening before all of the BlogHer Food ’11 events began, a group of food bloggers got together to enjoy a wonderful meal at Wisteria in Atlanta, Georgia.  The fare featured at this restaurant is kicked-up Southern and delicious.

It is fitting that Josie is in the center of this picture, because she is also the center of many blog entries being posted today.  Annie is hosting a virtual baby shower to welcome her little boy into the world.

When I chose the recipe I’d be ‘bringing’ to the shower, I knew I wanted to choose something the guest of honor would adore.  Pimento Cheese Deviled Eggs were one of the many appetizers we ordered at our dinner out at Wisteria and I think I can speak for everyone at the table when I say I wish we’d ordered more!

Recreating this appetizer at home brought back many memories of Josie and BlogHer Food.  We had a fantastic time together at the conference and laughed heartily at many stories about her toddler daughter, Caroline.

I can’t wait to hear about Josie’s new bouncing baby boy and hopefully catch up again at food blogging conferences in the future.  Be sure to visit Josie’s or Annie’s blog for the full round up!

    Ummm…eggs and cheese are my favorite foods in the whole world.  But I have never tried deviled eggs with cheese before.  I absolutely cannot wait to try this.

    Well, now I’m jealous all over again that you guys all got together.  Phooey. I have never had pimento cheese, and of course I love deviled eggs, so I definitely want to try these.
