Deviled eggs have always been a favorite of mine at parties, but I am not a fan of the fact that they’re usually drowning in mayo, so I set out to make a healthier but still tasty version. Introducing: Healthy Deviled Eggs! It will be our little secret that they’re healthy – you won’t know the difference!
Healthy Deviled Eggs
- 6 hard boiled eggs, peeled and cut lengthwise
- 1/4 C plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tsp dijon mustard
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/8 tsp salt
- paprika to garnish
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. If you would like the mixture to be smooth, use a blender.
Once it is mostly uniform, add the mixture back into the empty egg whites, top with a sprinkle of paprika, and enjoy!
