The Devil went down to Georgia and brought back his famous southern eggs - even though they are more Creole inspired. These creamy Hors d’oeuvres are the perfect snack before any meal, or simply just a great finger food! They will definitely stand-out with the added blackened shrimp.

Directions

In a large skillet, melt the butter and add in the spices. Once it’s simmering, add in the shrimp, turn the heat to medium-high, and saute for 3 minutes. Slice the eggs lengthwise and place the yolks in a separate bowl. Mash the yolks, mayonnaise, cream cheese, and spice together. Place the mixture in a piping bag (or a ziplock with a tip cut) and fill the empty egg shells with them. Top the eggs with a piece of shrimp and basil.
