Simple Low Carb Deviled Eggs

     1 dozen eggs, boiled & peeled
     2 Tbsp vinegar, I use white

Add eggs to a medium saucepan. Add water to cover the eggs completely. Add 1 Tbsp of white vinegar for every 6 eggs. Place the saucepan onto a burner and turn it to high. Cover the eggs and bring to a boil. Watch carefully so the pot doesn't boil over. Once the water is boiling turn the burner off. Let the eggs sit in the saucepan with the cover on for 18 minutes. (or longer)

When you are ready to peel the eggs drain the water from the saucepan and fill it with cold tap water. Let the eggs cool a bit. Peel and set aside.

Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and pop the yolk into a smallish bowl. Set the egg halves aside. To your yolks add...

     1/3 C mayo or more to taste
     1 tsp yellow mustard or your favorite
     1/4 tsp garlic powder
     2 tsp minced onion, could use a bit of onion powder instead
     1/2 tsp celery seed
     1/2 tsp dried dill
     1 tsp vinegar, your favorite
     2 Tbsp or more of heavy whipping cream
     A pinch of SF granulated sweetener, I used Monkfruit classic
     Salt to taste, I used regular & seasoned salt
     Pepper to taste
     Smoked paprika or regular for garnish
     Sliced green onions for garnish

Mix together with fork until nice and creamy. Taste it and adjust the seasoning to your liking. Sometimes at this point I store the the filling and egg halves in the fridge until I am ready to put them together.

When you are ready to fill the eggs place your egg halves on a plate or baking dish. Use a small scoop like the one pictured or add your filling to a medium plastic zipper baggie. Cut a hole in one corner. Pipe or spoon the filling into each egg half. Sprinkle with paprika of choice. Sliced green onions are also a great garnish. They add a nice pop of color. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve them.

So simple and so delicious! Enjoy with your favorite entree or a a nice salad.
