Eggs are a staple in my diet and fitness. They're a great way to get in some healthy fat and a good amount of protein. I pretty much eat eggs on a daily basis. If it's not at breakfast, they're hardboiled for a quick post workout snack. But lets be honest. If you eat something everyday, it does get a little tiresome and boring, right? I don't know how some people stick to such a strict diet of eating the same thing everyday. I could never do it. I have to have some variety in my life. Which is where these 'angel eggs' come into play. I know, you're thinking, what the heck is an angel egg. Well it's the opposite of a deviled egg. Deviled eggs are delicious, no doubt about that. BUT they're also full of unwanted fat and calories that I just don't want to be eating. Perhaps that's why they're called DEVILed eggs? Because they're evil when you're trying to watch your waistline? Hmmm. Food for thought, right??
Unlike a deviled egg, these eggs aren't mixed with mayonnaise. I replaced the mayo with some greek yogurt and cottage cheese to up the protein in them and cut out all the unnecessary junk. And you won't even miss the mayo, I promise! These are delicious, creamy, and a great way to spruce up eggs if you're getting a little tired of the same old scrambled or hard boiled eggs.
- 4 large hard boiled eggs
- 2 Tablespoons cottage cheese
- 1 Tablespoon plain greek yogurt
- 1 tsp. yellow mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- paprika (for garnish, optional)
Cut each egg in half. Place 2 yolks in a bowl and discard the other two. Place whites on a plate.
Blend together the two yolks, cottage cheese, greek yogurt, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix until smooth and the lumps are gone.
Place filling in a ziploc bag and snip the end off. Pipe the yolk mixture into each egg white half. Sprinkle with paprika.
