Recipe: Skinny Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs, but when they’re loaded with store-bought mayonnaise, they’re not so good for you. This is a guilt-free staple in our house, especially at breakfast.

4 large hard-boiled eggs
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 ½ tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon Cajun seasoning (optional)
coarse salt, fresh ground pepper

Slice the hard-boiled eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks. In a bowl, mash the yolks with the other ingredients and season with salt and pepper. Stuff the mixture back into center of the eggs.
Tip for hard-boiled eggs: Start the eggs in a pan with cold water. Bring to a boil, then cover and remove from the heat and let sit for 12 minutes in the hot water. Shock with cold water and peel while still warm.
