In the 1800s, Devilled meant spicy. This devilled egg recipe is great for an appetizer or to bring to a pot-luck, and it's perfect for Atkins and low carb diets!
6 eggs, hard boiled
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
Peel the eggs and cut each in half the long way. Pop all of the yolks into a mixing bowl and add in the mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix well with a fork. Use an icing dispenser to squeeze the mixture back into the eggs in a pretty shape. I like using the star nozzle.
Sprinkle the paprika on top, and enjoy!
Devilled eggs are one of my favorite appetizers of all time, and I'm thrilled that this is a low carb diet-friendly food! I don't save them for special occasions. I can have them as a snack whenever the mood strikes me. If you keep hard boiled eggs in the fridge, it's easy to simply pop open one and turn it into two devilled egg halves.
Luckily, most people adore devilled eggs so it also makes this an ideal dish to bring along to a housewarming, a family gathering, or any other type of social event. People will be thrilled that you are bringing devilled eggs with you to share, and you will be happy that you know that there will be at least one low carb item available to eat.
