Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place eggs in a single layer in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to maintain the barest simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out the hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

  • Peel the eggs and halve lengthwise with a sharp knife. Gently remove the yolks and place in a food processor. Add cheese, mayonnaise, pimientos, scallions, garlic powder (and/or onion powder), salt and pepper; process until smooth.

  • Spoon or pipe about 1 tablespoon of the filling into each egg white half. Top with additional scallions, if desired.


To make ahead: Loosely cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
