Stuffed Lemony Deviled eggs have a very bright, light taste. The lemon zest and dill flavor the egg yolk with a hint of spring.  Lemon always brightens up any food.  You will find that these stuffed lemony deviled eggs have a delightful zing that makes it hard to eat just one.

Deviled eggs are always a favorite at any gathering.  Usually, they are the first to be eaten up from the appetizer buffet.  An option that you can used to cut the fat and calories is to use light or non-fat mayonnaise and sour cream.  This easy-to-make stuffed deviled lemony egg recipe can be made a day before hand and stored, covered, and chilled in the refrigerator to help save time when preparing for a party.  Having multiple variations of an appetizer is a great way to fill an appetizer buffet.  It requires less planning and you use basic ingredients with minimal ingredients changes to make a whole new taste.

Stuffed Deviled Lemony Eggs Recipe

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 16 stuffed eggs

Ingredients:

8 large eggs
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons light sour cream
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill weed
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
Salt to taste
Paprika (optional)
Chives, chopped (optional)

* To help center the yolks in the eggs, the night before the eggs are to be cooked (approximately 12 hours), store your eggs on their sides in the refrigerator. Seal the egg carton with a piece of tape and turn on its side to center the yolks.

Instructions:

Check out my informative articles on How To Make Perfect Deviled Eggs and How To Boil and Peel Hard-Cooked Eggs.

Place the eggs in a saucepan just large enough to hold them all in one layer.  Add water to cover by 1 1/2 inches.  Add 1 tablespoon salt.  Partially cover the pan and bring to a full rolling boil.  Cover, reduce heat to low and leave on heat for 30 seconds.  Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 15 minutes.  Pour off hot water and rinse eggs under cold running water for 5 minutes.  Pour off the water and shake the pans to crack the eggs.  Peel under cold running water.

Cut peeled eggs in half lengthwise.  Transfer yolks to a bowl.  Cover and chill yolks and whites separately for 1 hour.

In a large bowl, mash the yolks with a fork.  Mash in the mayonnaise and sour cream.  Add dill weed, lemon zest, and salt; stir until well blended.

Fill the egg white halves with the yolk mixture, extending the filling over part of the white.  Generously sprinkle each half with paprika or chives, leaving a little yellow showing around the edges.  Cover and refrigerate.

Serve well chilled.

NOTE: The stuffed eggs may be made 1 day in advance and kept covered and chilled.

Makes 16 stuffed eggs.
