Deviled Eggs

This is my own recipe.  I’m sure everyone has their own way to hard boil eggs, but I like Martha Stewart’s recipe.  Just a quick summary of her recipe: (1) cover six eggs with cold water in a pan, cover and boil water; (2) as soon as water boils, remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 12 minutes; (3) remove eggs and put in an ice bath for 2 minutes; and (4) remove and peel.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 5 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar (or 1 teaspoon if using regular mustard)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or salt substitute
  • pepper, to taste
  • cajun spice, to taste (optional)
  • paprika

DIRECTIONS:

  1. SLICE the eggs in half, and carefully remove the yolks into a mixing bowl.
  2. MASH the yolks with a fork.  Stir in the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper and cajun spice, and mix until creamy.
  3. SPOON the mixture back into the hollows in the egg whites.  Sprinkle with a little paprika for color.

Each egg half has less than 1 net carb each. ♥
