About this recipe: A low-cholesterol stuffed egg? Yes, indeed! Filled with a delicious blend of egg yolks, vegetables and spices, these are lighter and creamier than traditional devilled eggs, yet have a richer flavour.

Ingredients
Serves: 10 

  • 12 medium eggs
  • 175g (6oz) virtually-fat-free fromage frais
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 40g (1½oz) finely chopped green pepper
  • 40g (1½oz) finely chopped red pepper
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • paprika to dust

Method
Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Put the eggs in a large saucepan of cold water and bring to a full boil. Remove from the heat, cover and leave to stand for 15 minutes. Drain the eggs and rinse under cold water to cool them. Peel the eggs, then cut each lengthways in half and remove the yolk. Discard 8 yolks.
  2. Arrange 20 egg white halves on a platter. Chop the remaining 4 egg white halves very finely. Mash the 4 yolks with a fork. Transfer the whites and yolks to a medium bowl. Stir in the fromage frais, spring onions, green and red peppers and mustard.
  3. Pipe or spoon the yolk mixture into the egg white halves. Sprinkle with parsley and dust with paprika.

Some more ideas

Make these eggs spicy! Add ½ tsp chilli powder or ¼ tsp cayenne pepper to the egg mixture. Or, for more heat, mix in a very finely chopped fresh green chilli.
