Deviled Egg and Mock Deviled Egg Recipes

Updated on June 20, 2009

Whether you are hosting a brunch or a cocktail party or just need a snack that is a protein boost, here are two recipes for deviled eggs. The second is for mock deviled eggs, a great alternative I found for if you are concerned about too much egg yolk consumption. The mock deviled egg contains hummus and will have less fat and cholesterol than the regular deviled egg.

Deviled Eggs

 Serves Six:

6 hard boiled eggs




black pepper

Peel off the eggshells and discard. Slice each egg in two. Scoop out the yellow yolks and place the yolks in a bowl on the side. Place the scooped egg white halves on a tray.

Add 3 tablespoons of yellow or brown mustard to the bowl of yolks along with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, 1 tspn of black pepper and 1 tspn of paprika. Mix all ingredients well until smooth.

In small teaspoonfuls, scoop a bit of the egg yolk mixture back into the well of each egg white. Sprinkle a dash more paprika on top.

Serve immediately or refrigerate and serve later within the same day for best taste.

If you've already read some of my other hubs, "A Recipe Inspired by East African Cuisine", "Best snacks fo the work day" and "Eggs, They're What's For Breakfast", you'll find I'm pretty big on eggs. The mock deviled egg recipe below is a great way to cut down on the egg yolks and eat more of only the most healthy part- the egg whites.

Mock Deviled Eggs

Many years ago, I heard about the suggestion to use hummus and I have been trying it ever since. As a step further, if you choose to, you can take a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) themselves, which hummus is made from, and blend them well with seasoning (garlic, paprika, black pepper, parsley).

Like the egg itself, chickpeas or garbanzo beans offer a lot of protein.

If you use canned chickpeas, you will want to drain them well, rinse them and then add a litle fresh water to them in the blender so that they will mix well.

The store bought hummus or this chick pea mixture, once smooth, can be taken and scooped into the egg whites the same way as mentioned above.

For a party or a family brunch, it can be good to have one tray of each ('regular' deviled eggs and mock deviled eggs)!
