Giraffe’s Deviled Eggs

Posted in : Appetizers on by : Administrator Tags: , , , , ,

We’d like to begin with a simple appetizer that our mothers would prepare when we were much younger – Deviled Eggs.  Deviled Eggs are easy to make and are also delicious low-carb snacks.

 The ingredients include:
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon of Dry Ground Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon of Dry Paprika
  • 2 teaspoons of Distilled White Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of Sugar-Free Pickle Relish
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 sandwich storage bag
We boil our eggs by placing them in a pot and completely submerging them in water. Place the pan on the stove and boil on “High.”  Once the eggs begin to boil, lower the setting to “Simmer,” cover the pan with a lid and allow the eggs to cook for 35 minutes.
Once the eggs have finished cooking, remove the pan from the stove and drain the water.  Rinse continuously with cold water, until the eggs have cooled (approximately 2 minutes).  Peel the eggs, while holding them under cold water.
To easily peel the eggs, my mother always taught me to gently squeeze the egg, until the entire shell cracks and then to remove the shell. If the egg is cooked perfectly, the shells should almost fall off the egg, without any hassles.  If not, patience is a must.  🙂

Once all the eggs have been peeled, take each egg in hand and carefully cut them lengthwise with a butter knife,  Place the yolks in a bowl and the egg halves on a plate.

Next, mash the yolks with a fork and add the Mayonnaise, Dry Mustard, relish, vinegar, and pepper to taste. We usually add about a teaspoon of pepper, since we enjoy the flavor.  And if the mixture is too dry/moist for your taste, merely add or decrease the amount of Mayo that is used.

For years, I would then try to scoop a little bit of the yolk mixture into each egg. However, the dish would look atrocious when I was finished. So, I starting placing the yolk mixture into a small sandwich storage bag and snipping one of the bottom corners with a scissors.  That would then allow me to pipe the mixture into each egg half.  Works like a charm and is not messy.

Now, the final step…sprinkling the Paprika onto each egg yolk mixture. This will add a professional touch and will give the eggs a slight smoky flavor.  I merely place a small amount of Paprika in the palm of my hand and then sprinkle over the eggs themselves.

Mmmmmmm!  Simple and scrumptious!  And according to the ingredients used, this recipe has 0 grams of carbs per serving!

Bon Appetit!
