Deviled Eggs!!!!!

Get it??? I know, I’m hilarious.

I love deviled eggs. They’ve always been a favorite of mine at parties, but I am not a fan of the fact that they’re usually drowning in mayo. Yuck! So yesterday I was having a craving for them and set out to make myself some, fANNEtastic food style :)

Healthy Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs, peeled and cut lengthwise
  • 1/4 C nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • paprika to garnish

Instructions:

First you need to hard boil the eggs! Place the eggs in a pot, add just enough cold water so that they are fully covered, and put on high heat. Add a little salt to the pot, too — it’ll make them easier to peel.

Cover and bring them to a boil, then turn off the heat and let them sit, still covered, for 12 minutes. Then they are ready! I usually rinse them with some cold water and let them sit for a bit to cool them down first. You can also put them in an ice bath.

Once they’ve cooled, peel them and cut them lengthwise.

Place the whites on a plate and the yolks in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the paprika) to the yolks in the bowl, and mash it all together.

Once it is mostly uniform, smoosh the mixture back into the empty egg whites, top with a sprinkle of paprika, and enjoy! :)

Yummy :) You guys should try these!! They are great as snacks, part of lunch, or of course as party appetizers :)

I enjoyed a couple for lunch along with some of my favorite Beet Salad (with feta instead of goat cheese and with the addition of some avocado and green pepper… man I love this salad!!)

And some more of those awesome crackers from the other night! Check out the texture close up:

CRUNCH! :)

So as you see in the deviled eggs recipe, I used nonfat plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo — it worked great and tastes just as good but is way healthier. :) I used Oikos brand organic Greek yogurt from Stonyfield.

Stonyfield has a contest going on right now for bloggers, and the grand prize is an all expenses paid weekend trip for two to the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Lenox, MA. Awesome, right!?! I’m entering this Oikos Deviled Eggs recipe. :) Two words as to why I’d love to win such a relaxing getaway: ORGANIC CHEMISTRY!!!

 

Happy Friday, friends!! The name of the game today is productivity: submit UNC application (!!!! finished my personal statement yay!), laundry, cleaning, editing work for my job, workout, etc etc! Oh and… NEW MOON THIS AFTERNOON!!!!! heh ;) Then I’m off to Baltimore tomorrow morning for a mini-reunion with my college BFFs :) Can’t wait!

 

Ta-ta!

    YUM- deviled eggs are my favourite party appetizer. And I definitely make them sometimes just because I want to eat them… greek yogurt v. mayo is a fab idea. If you win that prize I think you should take me on a yoga retreat :) mwahaha… hope you have fun in baltimore- next time you come up you’re coming up to see me!

    Yum.

    I linked to your recipe via the Oikos page. I love Deviled Eggs, but I always feel a little guilty imbibing copious amounts of mayo. What a great substitution!
