Let’s be honest… Mondays are not our favorite day of the week. Returning to work after way-too-short weekend can give us all a case of the Monday Blues. Luckily, today is National Deviled Egg Day, so we have something to celebrate.
The fact that deviled eggs have their own special plates and carrying containers proves that they warrant their own holiday. Add Wisconsin cheese, and you’re really getting fancy. This fall-inspired version from Alice of Hip Foodie Mom adds Wisconsin chipotle cheddar cheese for a unique flavor kick and extra creaminess. Sweet potatoes give a seasonal spin and hot sauce turns up the heat.
We’d serve these at a potluck lunch, your Thanksgiving dinner or even tonight at home to celebrate National Deviled Egg Day!
