Divine Deviled Eggs

Alas, I cannot take credit for these scrumptious deviled eggs recipe (Real Simple magazine May 2012) BUT I loved them so much I had to share!  Deviled eggs have been around since ancient Rome but lately they've fallen out of favor because people are little more health conscious these days.  However, eggs are low-calorie and protein rich.  Most of the fat and all of the saturated fat is in the yolk so that, combined with the classic recipe of mayonnaise, and there goes the diet!  But switch out the mayo with Greek yogurt and vinegar, or another type of low fat mayo substitute, and deviled eggs aren't that sinful to consume!

These added ingredients are sure to make the taste buds sing.  First up, add 1-2 teaspoons of wasabi paste.  Mix the paste into the yolk mixture.  Dividing evenly, spoon into the egg white cups and sprinkle with  sesame seeds.  Mm mmm!!!!

Or if you've ever wondered what Baltimore Crabs tasted like, use 1/2 teaspoon of seafood seasoning (like Old Bay), 1/4 cup lump crabmeat (about 2 ounces), and 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh chives.  Mix the seafood seasoning into the yolk mixture.  Fold in half the crab.  Dividing evenly, spoon into the egg white cups, top with the remaining crab and sprinkle with chives.  

Or, if your into a spicy flair, use 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 12 slices pickled jalapeno, and 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chili pepper.  Mix the cumin into the yolk mixture.  Dividing evenly, spoon into the egg white cups and top with the jalapeno.  Sprinkle with the ground chipotle.

Any of these will definitely liven up any party platters, especially if you don't tell anyone about the wasabi paste!  LOL!  Enjoy!
