I was skeptical at first. Pepperoni? On a deviled egg? Most deviled egg recipes I’ve had with extra/different ingredients than the traditional way haven’t been that great. But I just had to try these. They looked too interesting not to. And you know what? They are amazing! It took a lot of restraint to not eat them all myself. Thankfully I had friends over to help.
Now I have to figure out what to do with the remaining bag of mini pepperonis. Any ideas??
6 hard boiled eggs
3 Tbsp light mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste
12 mini turkey pepperoni
1 Tbsp shredded Asagio cheese (or Parmesan, or Mozzarella)
1 tsp diced fresh chives or scallions
- Slice eggs in half lengthwise, removing the yolk from the center of each egg. Place the yolks in a small bowl. Add the mayonnaise, salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix with a fork until creamy. Spoon into the center of each egg. Top with pepperoni, a sprinkling of asagio cheese, and a few fresh scallions for garnish. Enjoy!
