Here’s a riddle for you. What does an evil chicken lay? Answer: deviled eggs! In fact, if you are bored of eating plain old boiled eggs, this deviled egg recipe can be a game changer.
Eggs are one of the staple foods of the keto diet, and deviled eggs are an excellent way to enjoy them. They can be used as an appetizer, breakfast or a regular meal (in which case you might want to make a bigger serving).
They can be enjoyed either hot or cold. You can prepare them in advance and refrigerate them for a quick and easy breakfast the next morning. They’re tasty, filling and nutritious – a great way to start your day!
Eggs are an excellent source of protein, which has been shown to help keep you full. They also contain every single B vitamin and amino acid, which makes eggs a complete protein.
Additionally, eggs contain a good source of many selenium, choline, iodine, and vitamin D. They are low in calories and contain no sugars or carbs.
We recommend using freshly ground black pepper, if available, as it is more flavorful.
Mayonnaise is usually very low in carbs, but you need to check the label for the exact carb content. Alternatively, you can make your own mayonnaise.
For a spicier taste, you can add more cayenne pepper, or substitute the paprika in step 4 for cayenne pepper.
Let’s Do It!
Start by placing eggs in a large saucepan or pot with water, and let it boil over high heat. Wait for 6 – 7 minutes for the eggs to be perfectly hard-boiled.
Once cooked, drain the water and peel off the shells of the eggs. After that, carefully slice the eggs lengthwise to make two halves.
Remove the yolks from the halved eggs and put these to a bowl, then mash. This time, mix the ingredients including Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, and cayenne pepper with the mashed yolks. Add a pinch of salt to taste. Make sure to mix the ingredients well.
Finally, fill the egg whites with the mixture of mashed yolks. Sprinkle ground black pepper and paprika on top.
Serve and enjoy!
