question about deviled egg recipe

Aticineto | Mar 7, 201211:09 AM     6

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!
