Makeover Deviled Eggs

This updated version of a classic appetizer uses only half the egg yolks of the original recipe and calls for soft bread crumbs to help firm up the filling. We replaced the mayo with fat-free mayonnaise and reduced-fat sour cream. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 10 min.
  • Makes
    16 servings


  • 8 hard-boiled large eggs
  • 1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons soft bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash white pepper
  • 4 pimiento-stuffed olives, sliced
  • Paprika, optional


  • Slice eggs in half lengthwise and remove yolks; refrigerate 8 yolk halves for another use. Set whites aside. In a small bowl, mash remaining yolks. Stir in the mayonnaise, sour cream, bread crumbs, mustard, salt and pepper. Stuff or pipe into egg whites. Garnish with olives. If desired, sprinkle with paprika.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.

    Fat Free Mayonnaise and Reduced Fat Sour Cream weren’t even available in the 1950’s and in the 1950’s NO ONE would have removed 1/2 the egg yolks which BTW are actually not bad for you. With these modifications the result does not taste like the Deviled Eggs I remember when I was young!!! Why not substitute imitation bread crumbs to!!! Keeping up with 21st century research and wisdom, the full fat products are actually better for you than the reduced fat versions that are loaded with High Fructose Corn Syrup or GMO Sugar (unless it states cane sugar, sugar today is GMO Beet Sugar which is also contaminated with Monsanto’s Roundup/Glyphosate) and artificial toxic flavorings and other chemicals which are much worse for you that the fat that has been removed.!!!

    Editor’s comment about stuffing for a turkey doesn’t make sense!

    Egg yolks are better for you than bread crumbs

    Not intrigued by the addition of olives but am very impressed with the addition of a bit of bread crumbs.
