Leftover from an Easter Egg Hunt or perfect to enjoy with approaching spring and summer celebrations at fun get-togethers! Deviled Eggs! They are an easy home run at any event. Check out the benefits of olive oil vs mayo in heart health. High in protein, deviled eggs make a great snack and contain Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin.
Here is my revamped deviled eggs recipe – Hold the mayo! For best results use “less than fresh eggs.” When eggs are really fresh they are hard to peel. So, let them age gracefully in the refrigerator prior to your event (especially if you have your own chickens.) Eggs purchased at the grocery store are old enough to peel without too much trouble.
A dozen hard-boiled eggs peeled and cut in half
4 tablespoons of finely diced onion
About a tablespoon of olive oil
The juice of half a lemon
A dash of Tabasco sauce
A dash of Worcestershire sauce
Sea salt to taste
Mix the egg yolks and all other ingredients up in the food processor and then fill the egg whites with the mixture. If the yolks are dry you may need more olive oil. Pipe in to look pretty and sprinkle with paprika or parsley flakes. If you are lucky like me - you’ve got a great hand-me-down dish circa 1970s to serve your eggs in style. The dish was a gift to my mom which she then gifted to me 🙂
I also love hard-boiled eggs sliced and on avocado toast, paired with fruit as a balanced snack, sliced and atop a tasty salad (especially with tuna), sliced and added to baked sweet potato, with corn or whole-grain wrap, salsa, refried beans, and avocado. Or have you tried dill egg salad?
