Deviled Eggs – Made Angelic

What in the world do people do with all those leftover Easter eggs?  Make Deviled Eggs, right!?  Well, they are usually filled with fat (thanks to all the mayo) which truly makes them devilish when trying to eat healthy!  So, I decided to do a little research to see how we could make a Deviled Egg a bit healthier, but still have good taste.  I think I found a solution that works.

These Deviled Eggs are made with nonfat Greek yogurt instead of Mayo and the result is fabulous.  The Dijon mustard gives them a nice zing of flavor.  Now, I must truly admit . . . I don’t like Deviled Eggs much because I don’t love egg yolk.  So, in order for me to bring these Deviled Eggs up to par for me I have to add extra stuff.  Once I add sweet relish and a dab of hot sauce, I am VERY pleased.  In fact, I’ve been eating them for snacks this week and enjoying every bite.

That being said . . . my husband LOVES yolks and loves Deviled Eggs so I asked him for his opinion on the “plain” version and he said they were great!  So, I think we have a winner . . . whether you eat them plain or add a few extras (like sweet relish, pickles, hot sauce, chopped green onion or celery).  However you decide to enjoy them, I think we’ve made our Deviled Eggs a bit more angelic.

Deviled Eggs – Made Angelic
Adapted from fannetasticfood

6 hard-cooked 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

Place the whites on a plate and the yolks in a bowl, discarding yolks from 2 eggs.  Mash remaining 4 yolks with a fork.  Add the remaining ingredients (except for the paprika) to the yolks in the bowl, and mash it all together until you have a creamy consistency.

You can then take the mixture and smoosh it back into the empty egg whites.  I like to put my mixture in a small plastic bag, snip one of the corners and then pipe the mixture into the eggs (this seems much cleaner to me and it makes the eggs look nicer too).  Top with a sprinkle of paprika, and enjoy!

*If desired, for a little more flavor pizzazz, you can add other things to your egg yolk mixture such as sweet relish, pickles, chopped green onion, chopped celery, or hot sauce.  My favorite things to add to my deviled eggs are sweet relish and hot sauce.

Serves 4.
