Michele's Deviled Egg Recipe

Image: Italian Deviled Egg Recipes

When our parents were younger, every woman had to have a deviled egg recipe in her cooking repertoire. It was an absolute must! This treat was always a welcome guest at any party, event, or just plain old after school snack for the kids. Deviled egg recipes are not only delicious but low fat and very important these days, low budget!

I think we should get back to our roots and reintroduce this quick and easy appetizer back into our parties and events, lest our children should miss out on a healthy snack well worth sharing and passing on.

I always like to use free range or grain fed brown eggs. The difference is amazing in both taste and nutrition in the grain fed brown eggs! These savory deviled eggs are exquisite and one of my favorite healthy appetizer recipes.

I based this recipe on 6 boiled eggs and of course double it for a healthy dozen!

Health Benefits:

Paprika is rich in beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A plays a crucial role in the maintenance of healthy skin. It prevents the prevalence of wrinkles and promotes a bright skin tone.

Paprika is rich in vitamin A with 71 percent of the recommended need per serving. Vitamin A is known for improving your eyesight and preventing night blindness and macular degeneration from developing as we age.
