Bikini-Body Deviled Eggs / by Anthony Michael Contrino

Looking for a snack that won't tip the scales?  This is it!  Now, while I love me some mayo, it isn't missed in this recipe.  Each deviled egg half is only THIRTY calories.  That means, if you have two halves, it is LESS calories than a plain hardboiled egg.  You're welcome.  


10 large eggs, hardboiled, cooled and peeled

2 ounces goat cheese

1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons Fage nonfat greek yogurt

1 tablespoon chives, minced

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Generous pinch Kosher salt

Micro arugula, for garnish, optional 

Halve the eggs longways.  Gently remove the yolks.  Put 4 of the yolks into a medium sized bowl, discard the remaining yolks.  Submerge the egg white halves in cold water to remove all specks of yolk.  Drain the whites on paper towels.

Meanwhile, add the goat cheese to the bowl of yolks; use a fork to mash the two together.  Add the yogurt and combine until smooth.  Add the chives, lemon zest, pepper and salt.  Stir to combine.  Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a small star tip.  

Pipe the filling into the 20 cavities.  Garnish with micro arugula and serve.

TIP: I buy my eggs hardboiled.  You can find them in pretty much every supermarket.  They are priced reasonably, and cuts the prep time to less than 10 minutes!

DISCLAIMER: If I've said it once, I've said it before - I am no nutritionist.  I use myfitnesspal to calculate the calories.  While I am confident that the numbers are accurate, I cannot be 100% sure!
