More healthy appetizers: Blue Cheese Deviled Eggs

Blue Cheese Deviled Eggs from This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.com

In my Planning a party? Cook up some healthy appetizers with Sam’s Club cheeses post, I showed you how to use cheese in a healthy way to flavor a dish instead of making it your main course.

If you’re into retro Mad Men parties, you could try some healthy deviled eggs. Below is another version of the classic, but this time with using one of Sam’s Club new blue cheeses. Even with the added cheese, they’re only 1 Weight Watchers POINT per half egg.

My 10-year-old son, Nathan, said these were pretty good, but they’re more of an adult indulgence due to the strong blue cheese and Tabasco flavors.

This Mama’s Tips

  • Serve them with some Mad Men: retro shrimp appetizers or Mad Men inspired Bloody Marys.
  • Everyone likes to hard boil their eggs in a different way. I prefer the following method:
    • Place eggs in a small sauce pan and fill with warm water.
    • Bring water to a boil.
    • Cover and turn off heat.
    • Cook for 10 minutes.
    • Remove from stove top.
    • Remove lid and place in sink. Run cool water into pan until eggs are cool enough to handle.
    • Lightly tap egg to break shell to remove it.
