Directions for Deviled Eggs

  1. Place the eggs in a saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. Add cold water to cover the eggs by 1-inch. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Remove from the heat, cover and let the eggs stand in hot water for 12 minutes. Drain and cool completely in ice water.
  3. Peel and slice the eggs in half lengthwise.
  4. Place the yolks in a medium bowl and mash with a fork. Add the yogurt, mayonnaise and mustard, season with pepper (if using), and stir until smooth.
  5. Place the filling in a resealable plastic bag and snip a bottom corner with a pair of scissors.
  6. Pipe the filling into the egg whites.
  7. Top with pickled red onions and dill sprigs.
  8. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Boil and peel the eggs in advance to help reduce day of party prep time. Substitute other fresh herbs for dill such as thyme, tarragon, parsley or chives. Keep a jar of the pickled red onions in the refrigerator for sandwiches, burgers and salads. Experiment with different flavors by adding whole spices such as peppercorn, star anise, allspice or a pinch of cumin or caraway seeds.
