deviled eggs without the M word

Does anyone have a deviled egg recipe that does not include mayo (I hate even writing that word)? I have a good non-measurement recipe for a type of "fried deviled eggs" using mustard, but not sure if it will be good not fried.

  1. Martha Stewart had a recipe using creme fraiche...to me it's not nearly as good, but it's okay for a change.

    1. Oh we've gone through a slew of deviled egg ideas around here. Added to the yolks:
      yogurt, mustard, avocado, sour cream, light mayo, chutney, pickle juice, crabmeat, tuna, creme fraiche, buttermilk, whipped cream, and just plain milk. They all work in creating a light and eggy filling to the boiled white shell. I would recommend experimenting.

        Well, the only ingredient I can think of that wasn't mentioned here is cream cheese... i have experimented with a combination of cream cheese and yogurt...

      2. I have heard that mashing the yolks with mustard and softened butter is delicious. Very decadent, I'm sure!

        1. Sub mayo with plain yogurt.

          1. Have you tried olive oil? I make Caesar eggs by mashing and then binding the yolks with olive oil, then adding some minced anchovy or anchovy paste, a little minced garlic, lemon juice, and some Parm.
