No healthy Halloween recipe collection would be complete without an appetizer, right?
I think I put the mustaches on the wrong way though. They should be pointed down not up and I just noticed it now as I sat here writing today’s post. They look more like cats, don’t they? Common’ be honest!
Either way, cat’s are still Halloween-esque so we’re good. And there are red cats out there somewhere, I’m sure of it.
The original creator of the devilish egg was Martha Stewart. She’s a wise woman that one.
Up until yesterday I’d never had a deviled egg because I was always wary of the ingredients. All that mayonnaise in one recipe cannot be good. With a bit of experimenting, I realized that Happy Days goat cheese acts as a great replacement for mayonnaise in just about any recipe and does wonders to the flavors of this healthy Halloween appetizer.
Don’t worry, if you can’t have goat cheese I have you covered.
This recipe was developed for Happy Days Goat Dairy.

You could use store-bought roasted red peppers if you wanted to, but roasting them at home is pretty darn simple. Just broil for 25 minutes or so, peel and you’re good to go. I wish I’d made more because they make a fabulous edition to salads.
I learned that you have to be patient when scooping out the yolks from the egg whites. I broke a whole bunch of eggs and had to restart the processes more than once.
Yes, more than once.
I had ogre hands in the kitchen yesterday, obviously!
Blend all of the ingredients together, scoop out into the egg whites…
and top with pieces of red pepper and cucumber.
Now remember – put the mustache pieces on facing down, not up like whiskers!
Now that I’ve been introduced to the world of deviled eggs I’m curious, what’s your favorite deviled egg recipe?
