Heart Healthy Spider Deviled Eggs Recipe
In a large saucepan, cover eggs with cold water. Add ¼ tsp of Kosher salt. Bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat; cover and let stand for 10 minutes. While the eggs sit, fill a large bowl with cold water and a handful of ice cubes. Remove the eggs from the saucepan using a slotted spoon and transfer to the ice bath.
In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, mustard, lemon juice, lemon zest, shallot, sriracha and black pepper.
Remove the eggs from the ice bath, carefully peel them and halve them lengthwise. Remove the yolks, setting the whites aside, and place the yolk in the bowl with the yogurt mixture. Mash yolks with a fork until smooth.
Transfer the yolk mixture in a zip-top plastic bag and seal. Snip a ¼-inch hole in 1 corner of the bag. Pipe the yolk mixture into the egg whites. Set aside.
Slice 12 olives in half lengthwise. Place the olive halves cut side down in the center of the yolk mixture for the “body” of the spider. Set aside.
Slice the remaining 12 olives in half lengthwise; cut each half into 4 strips widthwise; then cut each strip in half widthwise. Place 8 pieces of olive on each side of the “bodies” on the yolk mixture to form the “legs.”
Sprinkle with chopped scallion and smoked paprika just before serving, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.
