This month I was assigned to Debbi's blog, Debbi Does Dinner Healthy. Debbi has so many good recipes, it was hard to narrow it down to one! In the spirit of fall and pumpkin, I was so tempted to make her Pumpkin Pancakes, but I did just make a pancake recipe recently that will be on the blog soon. I just made some rice krispies recently too but her Cinnamon Roll Rice Crispy Treats are so adorable and I bet they taste amazing too. But I decided to go with something more savory.
Ultimately, her Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs won me over.
Anything jalapenopopper-like is a sure thing for me. The perfect mix of spicy, salty and creamy!
(My tip to nearly perfectly peeled hard boiled eggs immediately removing the pot to the sink and run in cold water to stop the cooking process. Then when ready to crack and peel, run warm water on the eggs as you crack them in the pot. Crack all over, allowing the warm water to help release the eggs from the cracked shells. I only had one mess up, I consider that an almost success. :) Do you guys have any tips for perfectly peeled hard boiled eggs?)
Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs
slightly modified from Debbie Does Dinner Healthy
- 6 hard boiled eggs, peeled
- 2 tablespoons mayo
- 3 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
- 3 tablespoons cheddar jack cheese, shredded
- 1/4 cup pickled jarred jalapenos, diced
- 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (save some for garnish)
- cheddar jack cheese, shredded, for topping
Cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop the yolks out, add to a medium bowl. Mash the yolks and mix with the mayo, cream cheese, 3 tablespoons cheddar jack cheese, jalapenos and bacon. Place about a tablespoon of the mixture into the halved eggs. Sprinkle on cheddar jack cheese to top, place on a baking sheet and broil for a minute or so until cheese has melted. Top with additional bacon for garnish.
PJ declared these the best deviled eggs he's had! I agree they are super good. You can use fresh jalapenos if you want, be we used the jarred stuff because I prefer them in deviled eggs. We used cheddar jack shredded cheese, a mix of cheddar and monterey jack.
We loved that they were broiled for a minute too, cuz jalapeno poppers are served hot right?! Loved this twist on a deviled egg. Adding to the rotation :)
