Deviled eggs are an Easter essential. This Easter will definitely be a weird one for most of us, but at least we can always count on some good treats to make at home. If we don’t have good food, is it even a holiday? Fortunately eggs are pretty cheap and fairly easy to find right now. This healthy deviled eggs recipe is our favorite- it has no mayo, is full of good spices and flavors, and is perfect for all those Easter eggs you painted with your kids (or on your own, we don’t judge) that you now need to eat.
Healthy Deviled Eggs without Mayo
These healthier deviled eggs are made with Greek yogurt instead of crap tons of mayo. I don’t know about you but, I like mayo on sandwiches or in small quantities, sure. When recipes start calling for full multiple scoops of mayo mixed in, I start to vomit in my mouth a bit. I’ve heard this mayo in everything is a Midwestern thing, but I grew up in the south where butter is king, not mayo. So what can I say!
Using Greek Yogurt
In this healthy deviled eggs recipe, we combine plain whole milk Greek yogurt with the classic spices, plus vinegar and honey to still capture that tangy taste that a good deviled egg should have. I always use plain whole milk Greek yogurt because it is so creamy and rich but with only it’s natural sugars, not added ones. It is perfect for baking and cooking with, not to mention just add a drizzle of honey for a yummy breakfast in the mornings. I’m pretty sure we have that every morning at this point. Definitely a kid favorite as well.

How to make Deviled Eggs
Using hard boiled eggs, cut them the long way down in half. Get the cooked yellow yolk out of the whites in each half. This is a lot easier than you might think by just lightly squeezing the egg white so the yolk pops out. Then cream those yolks together with the Greek yogurt and spices to make you delicious deviled egg filling.
Do Deviled Eggs Go Bad?
Eggs that you buy from the store are perishable so they should always be kept refrigerated. Deviled eggs should be kept in an air tight container in the fridge until you are ready to eat them. Two days is the generally time frame you should keep for when to eat deviled eggs by. We normally will make them the day of or the day before Easter so that they get eaten up fairly quickly after preparing them.
