Many evenings, especially if I've eaten a healthier dinner, I tend to get hungry around 8 or 9 pm. It's not really an hour that you want to gorge yourself, so I'm always looking for ideas for light, quick, and healthy snacks. On more occasions than I can count, I'll pop myself some popcorn or eat a bowl of cereal. But I definitely need to start adding more ideas to my repertoire.
So I was super excited the other day when a positively egg-celent idea popped into my head: deviled eggs!
that way it's easy to grab a cooked egg whenever I want
salty and crunch and bite and spice
spicy watercress makes them tasty and fancy
Yours in discovering egg-citing new snacks,
Deviled Eggs, adapted from Not Without Salt
I love these guys because you can add/remove ingredients to suit your taste, or depending on what you have in the fridge. I loved the slight crunch the celery added, but they're definitely optional (along with the capers).
3 hard-boiled eggs, sliced in half lengthwise and yolks removed
1.5 TBSP mayonnaise
3/4 tsp dijon mustard (like grey poupon)
1/2 tsp whole-seed dijon mustard
1/2 tsp yellow mustard
1 TBSP celery, diced fine
1 tsp capers, chopped
salt and pepper, optional (I think the chopped capers provides enough salt, but I tend to like lower salt on foods)
Mash together egg yolks with all the ingredients. Spoon the yolk filling back into the egg whites. Garnish with celery leaves, capers, watercress, a dash of paprika, or whatever genius idea you have.
