Deviled Egg Recipe

This deviled egg recipe is excellent for quick but delicious low carb snacks, main meals, or appetizers.

These little devils are tasty and easy to make. Everybody seems to enjoy them.

When served with a fresh salad this is also a low carbohydrate complete meal.

Deviled eggs benefit from a couple of hours in the refrigerator before serving to allow the flavors to develop.

Even better, make them the day before and keep refrigerated until required.

This recipe uses 6 eggs and yields twelve deviled egg halves. Simply double the recipe if more deviled eggs are required.

Deviled Egg Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 large hard-boiled eggs (preferably organic)
  • 3 ounces of finely chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise (preferably homemade)
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons of prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of minced red onion
  • sea salt according to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper according to taste
  • paprika powder or chopped chives to garnish

Use organic ingredients as much as possible.

Recipe Method

Peel the shells from the hard-boiled eggs and cut the eggs in perfect halves lengthwise.

Remove the yolks leaving the egg white halves as empty "cups" that you will later refill.

Place the egg yolks in a dish and mash well with a fork. You will probably find it easier to mash the yolks in a flat dish rather than a bowl. When the yokes are mashed, blend in the mayonnaise, mustard, onion, and celery. Season with sea salt and freshly black pepper according to taste.

Check for seasoning, add more if necessary, and then spoon, or pipe, the mixture into the center of the egg white cups. You will have enough filling to form a raised mound and still manage to refill all of the egg halves.

Lightly sprinkle with paprika to add color, or chopped chives, and your deviled (devilled) eggs are ready. Deviled eggs are best served cold. Chill in the refrigerator until required.

There are many versions of this dish. Other versions may include a wide variety of added foods and seasoning, such as chopped green onions (spring onions), chutney, curry powder, hot sauce, olives, garlic, cheese, horseradish, capers, sour cream, spinach, smoked salmon, caviar, or other seafood.

There are approximately 5 grams of carbohydrates and 8 grams of protein for the whole recipe.

It's because doing so is a small step in reversing the damage we've done to ourselves by eating poorly.

Although it was a boon to civilization, the First Agricultural Revolution turned out to be detrimental to human health. Our bodies did not evolve eating such foods as grains, legumes, or potatoes!

When we stopped eating as our prehistoric forager ancestors ate, we began to suffer from the diseases of civilization such as coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, some cancers, and others. They have caused enormous unnecessary suffering as well as premature death.

If we return to eating (and moving) more like our successful ancestors, we can enjoy the benefits of civilization and much better health!

Since eggs are natural foods that are packed with beneficial fats and protein, using the deviled egg recipe is one way to do that.

Don't worry: if you are keeping your carbohydrate consumption low (below 25 grams) on most days, eating dietary fat won't make you fat.
