I took these to the Ornament Exchange Party at my Momma’s house last night and wanted to share with you a tasty and healthy alternative to the traditional cocktail party appetizer, deviled eggs. It’s always good to have at least a couple of healthy choices at a gathering.

I’m making a small batch this time, but you can always adjust the recipe to accommodate more eggs…I’m only making 6 (12halves).
I also make these in 2 stages, the night before and right before the party. I like to prep them ahead of time so that they are pretty much done by the time I actually need them.
Stage 1: The night before the party I get the eggs boiled (sometimes I buy them already hardboiled), scoop them out and make the filling and store in a zip lock baggie..
Stage 2: The day of the party I just take the hollowed egg whites, pipe in the filling, place them on a pretty tray (or ugly one, your call) and they’re ready to go!!
1. Cut the eggs in half and carefully scoop out the yolk. Only reserve the yolk of 3 eggs – the other yolks you can put to the side.
2. In a bowl, combine the 3 yolks, 3 Tbl. Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt, Celery Salt, and Pepper – you can add more seasonings and spice to taste.
3. Place mixture in a ziplock baggie, cut a small corner, and use as a piping bag to fill in hollowed egg whites – note: do not overfill the egg because there is just enough to make all 12 halves (remember- these are the skinny version).
4. Sprinkle with a dash of paprika (optional), and you’re all set!
