Tips

  • An alternative to spooning the mixture into the egg whites is to take a sandwich bag and cut the corner. Then put your mixture in the bag and fill boiled egg halves. This method can make it it a lot easier to fill and not so messy.
  • Add white cheese for extra flavoring and a dash of pepper.
  • A nice touch is a little paprika sprinkled on the top to give it color. For a bit of zing you can dash Cajun spice, ground red pepper or old bay lightly.

Warnings

  • Try not to stir the cheese in too much. You want the shredded cheese to be just slightly mixed in.
