Family and friends will love this cheesy version of classic deviled eggs.
Growing up, I really never liked deviled eggs. I think because the traditional way is heavy with mayonnaise and I just absolutely do not like mayo. It is just one of those foods that gives me the heebie jeebies. I don’t mind that I dislike mayo, because as a dietitian, I always encourage others to cut back on condiments like mayo and to use other substitutes like yogurt instead.
Don’t even get me started about cilantro. I think it tastes like soap. We can talk about that another day. Let’s get back to these deviled eggs. I wanted to make them cheesy, but also pop with flavor. That’s why I chose the horseradish variety for this recipe. Of course, you can always substitute with any kind of cheddar you would like. #cheddaisbetta

- Remove pan from oven and let cool for cheese to harden before removing from the pan.
- Use as a garnish, or to simply munch on!
