This easy, make-ahead recipe is everything we love about the classic egg, but in the form of a light meal!
Deviled eggs are favorite picnic and cookout fare — and they’re also an ideal way to use all those colored Easter eggs! My sister-in-law and my mom make the best deviled eggs, but this spread turns the traditional stuffed egg into a light lunch or dinner. It’s rather good for breakfast, too. As a convenient bonus, the recipe may be prepared in advance and will keep in the fridge for several days.
My favorite way to eat this spread is as an open-faced sandwich. I like to toast whole grain bread until it’s crunchy, add a thick layer of the egg mixture, and then top with chopped avocado. A side of vine-ripened tomatoes rounds out a light meal. As an option, enjoy alongside your favorite seasonal greens or roasted asparagus. For a light summer meal, stuff it in a hollowed-out tomato and sprinkle with some crisp bacon. And finally, for a delicious seasonal hors d’oeuvre, serve as bruschetta with some diced tomato on top…and maybe some more of that bacon. Bacon and eggs are a match made in heaven, right? 😇
- 6 hard-boiled eggs
- 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (non-fat or 2% both work well)
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ teaspoon kosher or sea salt and a few grinds of the pepper mill
- Optional toppings or mix-ins: chopped greens olives, avocado, fresh basil or dill
- Toasted whole-grain bread (or bead of choice) or tomatoes for serving
Slice the eggs in half, remove the yolks, and place the yolks in a mixing bowl. (Keep the whites on the cutting board.)
Mash the yolks, and then add the yogurt, mayonnaise, Dijon, Worcestershire, and salt and pepper.
Chop the egg whites, add to the bowl along with the optional add-ins, and stir to combine.
Spread the mixture on toast, scoop into a hollowed-out tomato or atop a thick slice of tomato, cucumber, or whatever else sounds good to you. Scatter optional garnishes overtop, as desired.
- This recipe can easily be doubled and will last several days stored, covered, in the refrigerator.
we always have a few extra eggs leftover from my baking. Now I know what I will be making next time. It looks so good. xoxo
I hope you enjoy, Beverley! Thanks for checking in! xoxo

Hi Ann, I’d heard on the radio about jalapeno egg salad & absolutely had to try it. I can’t have egg salad without it anymore, it tastes so good! Just a suggestion for anyone to try. Thanks for the delicious recipes!
That sounds pretty good to me, Danielle! Thanks for the suggestion…I think I might have to add a few jalapenos the next time: )
