It’s time for my second recipe post sponsored by the National Dairy Council! Remember, I’m working with them on a 6 post series and this is post #4, recipe #2! All thoughts, opinions, and recipes creations are honest and my own.
My recipe post last time was a yummy one. We made Homemade Tzatziki gave examples of how to use it on a salad and on a pizza. Since they were both more entree ideas, I figured I would make an appetizer recipe this time around to balance things out (dessert for my last recipe anyone!?)
This recipe is super easy to make and an appetizer that I always gravitate towards at parties. While traditionally made with mayonnaise or Miracle Whip, I think using yogurt in them instead makes them a bit healthier and adds a bit of natural sweetness! As health experts recommend people with lactose intolerance (LI) try to keep dairy in the diet, this recipe is LI-friendly too!
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 5 tablespoons plain yogurt (Greek or regular)
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon yellow or honey mustard
- dashes or salt and pepper to taste
- paprika for sprinkling on top!
- Slice hard boiled eggs in half. Place yolks in a small bowl and mash. I like to use a small whisk to mash, because you will be whipping in the other ingredients next!
- Add in all other ingredients (except paprika) and whip.
- Place an equal amount of mixture into each egg half.
- Sprinkle with paprika to make your appetizer pretty!
When we look back at the chart in the Amount of Lactose in Common Dairy Products post, if you use the following variation of yogurt you will yield the following amounts of lactose for whole recipe and one deviled egg:
- Yogurt, Greek, plain: whole recipe (2.3g lactose) / one deviled egg (0.2g lactose)
- Yogurt, plain, 8 grams protein: whole recipe (3.3g lactose) / one deviled egg (0.28g lactose)
- Yogurt, plain, 12 grams protein: whole recipe (5g lactose) / one deviled egg (0.41g lactose)
