Spring has finally arrived and it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy some of your favorite warmer-weather foods. These lightened-up deviled eggs are right on time for the upcoming Easter holiday and they’re downright delicious. We’ve lightened them up with some plain greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise and without skimping on their classic flavor. They’re perfect as a snack or appetizer and are perfect to take on a sunny picnic. I hope you enjoy these delightful deviled eggs.
6 large eggs
¼ cup plain greek yogurt
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard
¼ tsp salt (or to taste)
⅛ tsp pepper (or to taste)
Paprika for dusting
Chopped chives to sprinkle on top
Place a large pot of water to boil on the stove.
After the water comes to a boil, place your eggs in the boiling water gently. I recommend dropping them in with a spoon. This ensures that the shells will not crack open when they hit the bottom of the pot.
Boil your eggs for 13 to 14 minutes.
While your eggs are cooking, prepare a large bowl with water and ice.
When your eggs have finished cooking, drain the water and place your eggs in the ice water bath to cool them.
When your eggs have cooled, remove their shells. I find that using a spoon works the best. Gently hit your eggs with the back of a spoon in one or two spots. Then carefully peel the eggs.
Once all your eggs are peeled, wash them under cold running water to remove any eggshell pieces. Dry your eggs after washing them.
Cut each egg in half.
Using a spoon, remove the yolks from each egg and place them in a small bowl.
After you’ve collected all the yolks into your bowl, add your vinegar, greek yogurt, dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Mix it well.
Transfer the mixture into a piping bag. You can also use a plastic sandwich bag. Simply cut off a small piece of one corner if you don’t have a piping bag.
Pipe the mixture into the empty spaces of your eggs. I like to start by filling each one to where it meets the egg whites. Then I go back with more filling after I’ve completed each egg.
After filling the eggs, dust them with paprika and chopped chives if desired. Enjoy!
