Pimento Cheese Deviled Egg “Pumpkins”

12 egg halves
30 min

A fun fall deviled egg appetizer, filled with cheesy flavor!

These deviled eggs get their pumpkin color and cheesy flavor from the  Pâté of the South, pimento cheese!

Use your favorite store brand of pimento cheese to make these deviled eggs or your favorite pimento cheese recipe.

To make the pumpkin shape, I used a small cookie scoop to mound the deviled egg mixture into the egg white half. Depending on the consistency of your mixture, you may want to chill it briefly so your mixture is firm enough to hold its shape.

 To mimic a pumpkin, make pumpkin “ribs” with a toothpick and use a 1/2-inch  piece of chive for the pumpkin stem. I added a tiny piece of parsley leaf to the top of the egg below the chive stem, but that extra step is optional.

Sprinkle your deviled egg with some paprika for some added pumpkin color.

With our 80+ degree temperatures and spike in the humidity, the weather is more suited to Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream than Pumpkin Spice Latte! Cool off with a bowl of Pumpkin Spice No-Churn Ice Cream
