 A great base recipe for anyone wanting to lighten up and “healthify” deviled eggs. Feel free to make them your own by adding your favorite herbs and spices. For example, if you want your eggs a bit more tangy, add a couple tablespoons of relish. You can also play with the amount of salt and pepper or add fresh parsley, a sprinkle of paprika or even a crumble of bacon.
