Clean Eat Recipe :: Protein Packed Angeled Eggs!

SidesWhitney Carlson32 Comments

What a great way to reach your fitness goals with our friend and complete protein, the egg! Now, I have to be honest - I have never had a deviled egg in my life!  I was super excited to try this recipe for angeled eggs when I saw that it was clean and a great alternative to their higher fat, higher cholesterol evil cousin, the deviled egg.

Clean Eat Recipe :: Protein Packed Angeled Eggs!


  • 6 eggs, hard boiled
  • 6-oz can tuna
  • 4 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • Paprika, to garnish


1. Slice eggs into halves lengthwise. Scoop out yokes and set aside.

2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, finely mash 2 egg yolks with a fork. Discard remaining yolks.

3. In another bowl, finely mash tuna with a fork.

4. Combine tuna and egg yolks into one bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

5. Spoon mixture into hollowed-out egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika. Serve immediately or chill to allow flavors to meld.

There is one caveat... my Father-in-Law, who is not used to eating anywhere near remotely clean, decided to try one and I don't think that they were what he was expecting.  There is definitely a different taste than that of a deviled egg!  Worried? Try making a small batch before you plan to serve them just to make sure the family is up for it!
