question about deviled egg recipe

Aticineto | Mar 7, 2012 11:09 AM

Hi all,

I am attempting an apetizer for our office potluck next week. I am band new to cooking, and wanted to bring in something home made instead of my usual peperoni, cheese and crackers.

I found this recipe for deviled eggs and it sounds easy enough.

1 question - do they sell cheddar cheese alreadty shredded? If not, how do I shred it? Do I get a piece of cracker barrell for example and use a cheese grater? I am totally new to this.

Also, would it be okay to make it the night before? I leave for work at 6 AM and wouldn't have time to do it in hte morning.

Thanks in advance!


14 hard-cooked eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1/4 cup (1 ounce) finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives or scallion (green onion) tops
Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks to a medium bowl. Reserve 24 white halves; finely chop remaining 4 white halves.

Mash yolks with fork. Add mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, lemon juice, and pepper; mix well. Add chopped egg whites, bacon, cheese, and chives; mix well.

Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon yolk mixture into each reserved egg white half. Refrigerate, covered, to blend flavors
