How to Make Healthy Deviled Eggs

This recipe is a little time consuming but it is easy to make. To start, place the eggs in a pot and cover will cold water that goes about an inch over the eggs. Place the pot on the stove and bring water to a boil.

Once the water is boiling let cook for one minute and then remove the pot from the heat. Keep the pot covered and let sit for 10-14 minutes. Ten minutes will give a soft boiled egg and 12-14 minutes will give you a hard boiled egg. We prefer hard boiled eggs with the light yellow yolks inside (see images below).

While eggs are sitting in the pot make an ice bath with a lot of ice and water in a large mixing bowl. Once eggs are done cooking, drop them into the ice bath. Let eggs cool for 10 minutes or until they are easy to handle.

Now, it’s time to remove the egg shells. This is probably the hardest and most time consuming step but there are some tricks for peeling hard boiled eggs. Tap the egg shells on the side of the bowl all around and gently peel off the shells. I usually keep the eggs under the water in the bowl as I peel.

The water tends to help the shells come off easier. You can also hold the eggs under running water and that will help as well. Eggs that are slightly older tend to peel easier than super fresh eggs. If possible, buy your eggs 2-3 days before you plan to cook them.

Slice each egg in half and remove the yolks. Place all of the egg yolks in a small mixing bowl. Add mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper to the yolks and stir to make a smooth paste. Once combined, either spoon the yolk mixture into the egg whites or use a bag and piping tip to pipe into the white.

Sprinkle with paprika and place in the refrigerator to let chill. After chilling for at least an hour the eggs are ready to be served.
