It’s Easter week and if you’re on the hunt for great recipes for the day, I have some. This year, I’ve created a variety of deviled eggs and this is one of the more unusual recipes. The pickled okra is key in this recipe and ties it all together, so don’t skip it.
Follow your favorite method for boiled eggs.

Place eggs yolks, mayonnaise, pimento, cheddar cheese and white part of a green onion in a food processor Process until smooth, scraping down the sides. Add salt and pepper to taste but don’t go overboard on the salt because you will sprinkle these will celery salt or seed before serving.
