One of my favourites!
Someone brought a bunch of these to Christmas dinner. I was trying to behave, but I was hungry and it seemed like a better idea than chips… I’d forgotten how much I’ve always enjoyed devilled eggs, so when I got hungry this afternoon, I grabbed one of the hard-boiled eggs out of the fridge, and set out to see if I could come up with a recipe that was ‘allowable’.
It seems to have worked!
Ingredients (for 1 serving)
1 egg, hard boiled and cooled
1/2 tsp minced onion
1 dash Worcestershire sauce (2 – 5 drops, to taste)
1 dash Tabasco sauce (2 – 5 drops, to taste)
1 pinch mustard powder
2 tsps Light mayonnaise (I used Hellmann’s 1/2 Fat)
1/2 tsp chopped parsley, optional
1 pinch paprika
- Peel egg and slice in half.
- In small bowl, mash egg yolks. Mix in onion, Worcestershire, Tabasco, mustard, mayonnaise and parsley, if using.
- Drop yolk mixture with a spoon and knife into the egg whites. Top with a sprinkle of paprika.
Notes: if you don’t have onion on hand, use green onion or chives. Both the hot and smoked paprika varieties are nice.
Serving Ideas: Serve with about 1/4 cup of pickled onions and gherkins.
