Good Try

Saturday, December 07, 2013

In my family I am known for deviled eggs. Whenever we have a family gathering relatives almost always ask me to bring deviled eggs.

This last week I decided to make some healthier. So instead of my usual Kraft mayonnaise, I used plain Greek yogurt. I also used no salt and sodium-reduced pickle relish.

I can't say that I liked them, although mine didn't go to waste. My hubby took one bite. On a positive note, my 6 year old granddaughter still loved them. I think next time I'll try Greek yogurt with some sea salt. Making two drastic changes may be too much all at once. Perhaps I'll try half mayo and half yogurt at some point and see if perhaps I could gradually get everyone used to the change. We'll see.

    I use reduced fat mayo or fat free mayo. The reduced fat has less sodium than the fat free. I would imagine that mixing the reduced fat mayo with non fat yogurt would be okay too.

    Oh, I love deviled eggs!!! I agree with others, one change at a time. Make sure and don't tell anyone because change will make preconceived notions before they even try them!

    Good for you for trying to make them healthier, though. I believe in moderation, so if you don't "get it down" you can always have them as a treat! emoticon

    My daughter makes her tuna salad with plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise and I could not really tell the difference.

    People do get fixed on their "traditional" treats tasting just like always -- incremental change maybe will work over time!

    When I make dip, I use FF mayo and Greek yogurt and everyone seems to love it so maybe that will work in your eggs.

    Keep adjusting until you find a taste you like. You just never know what it will take to make them perfect. HUGS!

    Experimentation leads to the result in the end... you know something else to try "next time"... I think you're right about changing these things a little at a time!
