I've been making these Cajun-style creamy deviled eggs for years. They're pretty much like any standard recipe except my secret ingredient is the cream cheese. And the extra love I add, of course!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Deviled eggs are an easy appetizer and we like Melissa's Cajun twist. Adding cream cheese makes the filling super creamy with a velvety texture. Sweet relish adds a touch of sweetness to the filling. They sort of taste like egg salad. Yum!
