Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs, also known as Russian eggs, dressed eggs, or stuffed eggs, are hard-boiled eggs that are shelled, cut in half, and then filled with a paste from the egg yolks mixed with mustard or mayonnaise. One large egg contains no more than 1 g of carbohydrate. This food is also high in choline and vitamin B12, which play important roles in brain health. To cook deviled eggs at home, you need to boil them and then slice them in half. Remove the egg yolks and then mix them with pepper, salt, mustard, and mayonnaise. Put this mixture back to the egg white before enjoying. You may top it with paprika to boost the flavor and taste. [1]
