Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs have always been a food for special occasions in my family. My dad often makes them on Thanksgiving morning for the family to eat and we all love them. I was recently sent some Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes and FollowYour Heart Vegenaise to try out. I had a hankering for deviled eggs so on a day off work, I whipped these light deviled eggs up.

Deviled Egg Ingredients

Lightened Up Deviled Eggs
10 eggs
¼ cup reduced fat mayo
3 tablespoons finely chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons dill relish
1 ½ tablespoons yellow mustard
1 teaspoon black pepper
Paprika for color on top

  1. Hard boil eggs. Once cooked, run under cold water. Immediately remove shells from eggs while they are still warm as it is easier this way.
  2. Cut eggs in half, remove yolks and add to a bowl (throw out two of the yolks). Mash yolks with a fork. Set aside egg whites.
  3. Mix the rest of the ingredients except paprika together with the yolks.
  4. Fill egg whites with a heaping teaspoon of yolk filling.
  5. Sprinkle with paprika.

These can be eaten immediately or stored in the fridge for a couple of days.

Deviled eggs
I had my husband, mom and dad try these. They all really liked them. The sun dried tomatoes were awesome. It really gave the deviled egg a different flavor than normal. These Bella Sun Luci sun dried tomatoes from Mooney Farms are great to add a rich flavor to any meal. I cut up some extra sun dried tomatoes and topped my eggs with them. I will use these sun dried tomatoes to make a fancy chicken meal soon.

I prefer the dried tomatoes that are not packed in oil since the oil adds a lot of calories. I would eat the oil packed ones on a piece of good bread though where I could really taste the flavors. The sun dried tomato pesto from Bella Sun Luci is a favorite of mine.
