Perfect Healthy Snack- Angel Eggs

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.
