A healthy spin on one of America's favorite appetizers. A healthy spin on one of America's favorite appetizers.
Number of Servings: 6


    6 hard boiled eggs, peeled and halved lengthwise
    1/3 cup reduced-calorie mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons low-fat cottage cheese, drained
    2 tablespoons mustard
    2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
    salt & pepper, to taste
    Paprika, for sprinkling
    Parsley sprigs, for garnish (optional)


Place three of the egg yolks in a bowl (discard the others), and mash them.

Add the mayonnaise, cottage cheese, sweet pickle relish, mustard, salt and pepper to taste.

Mix all the ingredients together. The texture needs to be firm enough to pipe back into egg halves with a pastry bag or with a spoon.

Spoon or pipe (with star tip) filling into egg whites, then sprinkle with the paprika. Garnish with the parsley.

Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.

Number of Servings: 6
Serving size: 2 egg halves

    This recipe is a great breakfast idea. I could make it the night before and serve it for a fast breakfast while shooting out the door. I would also like to try it with my favorite light ricotta instead of cottage cheese. - 5/12/10

    The unused egg yolks can be used in egg salad sandwiches, in potato salad, in a dip, just to eat...... They are too tasty and nutritious to simply "discard"..... We had "deviled" eggs twice at Thanksgiving time and simply spooned the yolk mix high. Adding cottage cheese sounds like a good idea. - 11/29/08

    I would have never thought of putting cottage cheese in egg salad - great idea. I'll have to give it a try! Thanks! - 12/20/08

    I like mixing the yolks with light miracle whip and light chive and onion cream cheese. Creamy and flavorful! - 5/12/10

    Although I think this isa good recipe I am really concerned by the comment that one should discard 3 of the egg yolks! As a pensioner I have to use all my ingrediens to the full. I used the 3 extra egg yolks in my kedgeree but cld thinkof other ways to use them instead of binning them. - 11/29/08
