I love Layered Pea Salad and that is exactly what these Cheesy Peasy Deviled Eggs remind me of.  I just love the versatility of the deviled egg.  Make them as an appetizer for a dinner party or take them on a picnic.  Plus, you can add anything to them.    Like these Cheesy Peasy Deviled Eggs.  You still get the tangy flavor you love but with little bits of cheese and petite peas.  My Easter table is not complete without deviled eggs.  This year I think I’ll serve these instead of the traditional ones.
