Ingredients:

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha or Tabasco
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives

 

Preparation:

  1. Add water to a large saucepan to a depth of 1 inch; set a large vegetable steamer in pan (steaming produces perfectly cooked, easy-to-peel eggs every time).  Add eggs to steamer.  Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat.  Steam eggs, covered, 16 minutes. Remove from heat.  Place eggs in a large ice water–filled bowl for 3 minutes.
  2. While eggs steam, combine 1/4 cup water, vinegar, and sugar in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until boiling.  Stir in onion.  Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.  Drain.
  3. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, Sriracha/Tabasco, pepper, and salt in a medium bowl, stirring well to combine.
  4. Peel eggs; discard shells.  Slice eggs in half lengthwise.  Add 6 yolks to yogurt mixture; reserve remaining yolks for another use. Mash with a fork until very smooth.  Stir in 2 tablespoons red onion.  Spoon mixture into egg white halves (about 1 tablespoon in each half).  Garnish egg halves with remaining red onion and chives.
