Deviled Eggs

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
Deviled Eggs

Introduction

Chef Meg lightened up a picnic and potluck favorite! Her secret ingredient (shh, don't tell!) is pickle juice.

Chef Meg lightened up a picnic and potluck favorite! Her secret ingredient (shh, don't tell!) is pickle juice.


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    6 large hardboiled eggs
    3 T fat free mayonnaise
    1 t Dijon mustard
    1/4 t black pepper
    1 t dill pickle, chopped fine
    1 t pickle juice
    1 T celery, chopped fine
    1 T parsley, chopped


Tips

Use light mayonnaise if you prefer that, or swap sour cream for the mayo. Her serving size is two halves, which will make a satisfying afternoon snack!

If you want to lower the calories even more, only mash four of the egg yolks. You'll save 20 calories and a gram of fat.


Directions

Cut each egg in half and remove yolks, placing them in a large bowl. Using a fork, mash the yolks until they are small, uniform, and granular. Then add the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine, and scoop or pipe with a piping bag back in to egg halves. Enjoy!

    great, easier way is to put the ingredients in a baggie and mash them and mix them together, using your fingers. Cut a corner off the bag and use like a pastry cookie filler and fill each egg. Less messier. - 12/29/09

    Great recipe. Here is a hint for peeling the boiled eggs to making deviled eggs: use older eggs, not fresh eggs. I was a science fair judge and a young lad did a scientific experiment on this. Something to do with the inner membrane letting go of the shell as the egg ages. He was correct! - 4/4/10

    For incredible texture, press the yolks through a strainer (I use a fine mesh tea strainer.) The filling will be wonderfully smooth and fluffy. To make this a more special adult treat, sprinkle with smoked paprika or cayenne. Also, you can top these with a few capers. - 12/29/09

    Similar to my recipe. My family loves deviled eggs, but doesn't like the chopped "veggies" so I use a little celery salt, garlic, dill weed and the pickle juice, with a sprinkle of paprika or cayenne on top! Don't have dill pickle juice? Soak dill weed in a tsp of vinegar for a bit - 4/4/10

    I, too, use hummus sometimes in place of mayonnaise. But fatfree mayonnaise tastes awful. Try Greek FF yogurt (I always use Fage Total 0) instead. Also: if you don't have a special egg plate, simply slice a tiny bit off the bottom of the half and it will lie flat & level. Try different mustards. - 1/29/13
