    Sharon123's Note:

    When I saw the ingredients for the RSC contest(Feb. 2010), this came to mind. I love the lemon zest in this and the smoked paprika is so good! This recipe is easily doubled or tripled.

      Great tasting deviled eggs, & something a bit different from what I usually make, which is all to the good, I thought! I liked the addition of cream cheese & the only thing I changed was to increase the amount of lemon zest ~ Absolutely love that stuff! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

      The use of cream cheese made these very creamy, but changed the texture a bit too much for us. I like all of the ingredients, but felt something was missing here. I usually balance the tartness of the mustard with a pinch of sugar (or splenda) and maybe that was the note that missed the mark with us. Thank you for your contribution to RSC & good luck!

      Made for RSC #15 as our final effort in the waning hrs, we tried both RSC #15 devilled egg recipes & found them equally appealing as the differences were subtle except for the type of cheese used. Made as written, I esp liked the lemon zest influence on the flavor. DH was less enthused, altho mainly due to his pers pref for crumbled bacon in devilled eggs. For the 2nd time, I say .. I know pers pref can be annoying, but we are less likely to allow for them in a contest than in our daily cooking. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us & good luck in the contest.
