October is pumpkin season and in keeping with all things pumpkin,
I have a fun fall bite or appetizer. . .
Pimento Cheese Deviled Egg “Pumpkins”!
These deviled eggs get their pumpkin color and cheesy flavor from the Pâté of the South,
Use your favorite store brand of pimento cheese to make these deviled eggs
or your favorite pimento cheese recipe.
To make the pumpkin shape, I used a small cookie scoop to mound the deviled egg mixture
into the egg white half.
Depending on the consistency of your mixture, you may want to chill it briefly
so your mixture is firm enough to hold its shape.
To mimic a pumpkin, make pumpkin “ribs” with a toothpick and use a 1/2-inch
piece of chive for the pumpkin stem. I added a tiny piece of parsley leaf to the top of the egg below
the chive stem, but that extra step is optional.
Sprinkle your deviled egg with some paprika for some added pumpkin color.
Pimento Cheese Deviled Egg “Pumpkins”
6 tablespoons (or more to taste, I used slightly more) Pimento Cheese
6 eggs, hard-boiled
1/4 cup mayonnaise (use more or less depending on consistency of your pimento cheese)
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon paprika, plus more for sprinkling
Chives for pumpkin stem, parsley leaf for stem garnish if desired
Cut hard-boiled eggs in half, remove yolks and place into a bowl.
Place egg whites onto a serving dish. Mash yolks with a fork until fine.
Add mayo and mix well, season with salt & pepper and paprika.
Add pimento cheese and mix until incorporated together.
Fill egg white halves with a cookie scoop, mounding deviled egg mixture.
Use a toothpick to make ribs of pumpkin and garnish with a piece of chive
or parsley leaf to make pumpkin stem.
Sprinkle with additional paprika for pumpkin color.

It feels more like August than October this week, with 80+ degree temperatures
along with a spike in the humidity. . .weather more suited to
Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream than Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Cool off with a bowl of Pumpkin Spice No-Churn Ice Cream
with Pumpkin Granola and Caramel Sauce, HERE.
Thank you for your visit, sharing with:
Those are the cutest! I love pimento cheese spread too, and even though I don’t care for deviled eggs.(Southern blasphemy, I know), I can see that adaptable on little naans or crostini bread.
Way too humid here too – what is with this weather??? I’m afraid fall is going to be a blur because of it.
The eggs are the absolute cutest!!! I can’t wait to make them. Thanks Mary for all your wonderful ideas:)
Yummy! Have to serve those for Thanksgiving!🍁
The eggs are so cute!!! I would like the ice cream too though.
Oh my Mary..these are the cutest!! These are what I call a true deviled egg of the South! What a great appetizer for the Thanksgiving dinner!!
Aw! These are the cutest things…I love them!
Such a nice idea! Thanks for your post.
Those deviled eggs sound so yummy and they are adorable. Vikki in VA
Love the idea of pimento deviled eggs! Going to a Halloween party, now I know what I will be bringing!
These would be perfect Carol! 🎃
Adorable! I visit your site every day even though I may not comment. Thank you for sharing all of your great ideas!
These are too cute Mary, what a great addition to a fall party! Pimiento cheese is welcome anytime on my plate!
Some of my favorite childhood memories feature pimento cheese. These “Pumpkins” are too cute … and delicious looking. Fun!
How cute is that! I love deviled eggs and I like Pimiento cheese, but have never had it together, will have to try for sure. Thanks Mary!
Thank you for this beautiful fall inspiration! I’ve pinned it and can’t wait to make!
Mary, this is the cutest appetizer and so simple! And I simply love pimento cheese. I am sure they taste as great as they look!
These are so cute! If I may ask, what kind and where do you get the pimento cheese? I am from Mi and it’s really hard to find, or find a good tasting one anyway. You are so creative and talented, love looking at your photos.
Thanks Jane! We like Palmetto Cheese, it’s made in S.C. It looks like it’s available in Michigan. Go to ‘find locations’ and put your zipcode in the search bar. :)
Adorable and edible—the green bean stem is genius. I can just taste this delicious Southern pate!
Now if those pimento cheese stuffed deviled aren’t the cutest little pumpkins ever! You and Lynn are both Queens of Deviled Eggs. I’m loving your pretty wooden pumpkin platter, too, Mary!
Looks great! I love deviled eggs and pimiento cheese – a winning combination! The pumpkin board is a perfect serving piece. Where could I find one for my deviled eggs?
Thanks Sue, I found it at HomeGoods! :)
Hi, Mary! Those are the cutest, most delicious-looking little things, and so much fun to take to a Halloween Party!
Aw, they turned out cute Mary! Love me some deviled pumpkins… er, I mean eggs:@)
Your egg “pumpkins” are so cute and the pumpkin serving board is, too.
I agree pumpkin spice ice cream fits our weather best right now. I am so ready for cooler air and no humidity.
Such a cute idea! Thanks for sharing this idea!
Two of my favorites, deviled eggs and pimento cheese! YUMMY!! 😍😋😍😋
I made the No Churn Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream over the weekend when we had guests. What a hit! It is wonderful. Just yummy! The recipe was requested to take home. Thanks for always providing such inspiration for so many things. Now to try those cute little pumpkin deviled eggs. :)
Oh my I will have to try thank you and God bless
I get mine at Walmart and it’s called Pimento Spread by Mrs. Weaver. Love this idea!
Such a clever idea!
I just made a batch of pimento cheese yesterday so I’ll definitely be trying out this recipe!
These are seriously the cutest deviled eggs EVER! I’m not a fan of deviled eggs, but I love me some pimento cheese. The combinations is shear genius and I’m pinning them to try!!! YAY!!!
Darling idea. Oh how I love deviled eggs!
