3-Ingredient Small Bite: Easy Deviled Eggs

Today’s 3-ingredient dish is an update on a classic from Rachel Rappaport, the food writer and recipe developer behind Coconut & Lime, which she started in 2004 as a way to share recipes with her friends. Her first cookbook, The Everything Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook, came out this month.

I have a ton of recipes for fancy deviled eggs but some times you just want something quick that’s still a crowd pleaser. One day I realized that tartar sauce is a mixture of mayonnaise, spices, pickles, and onions; pretty much exactly what I would put into deviled eggs anyway. So why not use it? It works surprisingly well. For the tastiest eggs use a flavorful, high-quality prepared tartar sauce or a homemade one.


Easy Peasy Deviled Eggs

6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced length-wise
3 tablespoons tartar sauce
1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard

In a medium bowl, mash together they egg yolks, tartar sauce, and mustard until fairly smooth. Spoon the mixture back into the egg whites. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and serve immediately.
