Healthy Deviled Eggs
- 6 eggs hard boiled
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 1 tsp spicy brown mustard
- .25 tsp salt
- black pepper and salt to taste

- Put 6 eggs in cold water in a medium sized pan. Add a half a tablespoon of oil to the water. Cook on medium/high heat until the eggs come to a full boil. Shut off the heat and cover the pan. Leave the eggs for 12 minutes and then rinse them under cold water. The oil should allow the shell to peel easily.
- Cut the eggs lengthwise down the middle once they are peeled. Set egg whites aside and pop yolks into a small bowl and add oil, sour cream, mustard, salt and pepper and mix together. Refill the egg whites with the filling and sprinkle with paprika. Enjoy!
