Yield: 8 servings

Preparation time: 15 minutes


  • 4 large, hard-boiled eggs
  • ¼ cup non-fat, plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ tsp chopped fresh chives + plus extra for garnish
  • ½ tsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1/8 tsp hot or sweet smoked paprika
  • 1/8 tsp fine ground sea salt
  • Pinch of ground black pepper


  1. Carefully cut the hard-boiled eggs in half. Gently remove the yolks. Place two of yolks in a small bowl and discard the other two. Place the egg whites, cut-side up on a serving plate.
  2. Add the yogurt, chives, dill, paprika, salt, and pepper to the two egg yolks. Use a fork to smash the yolks and stir all ingredients. Stir for about 30 seconds, until smooth and all ingredients are blended.
  3. Transfer the filling to a pastry bag with a star tip, or to a zip lock bag with the bottom corner cut off. Pipe an equal amount of filling into each egg where the yolk was held. Sprinkle with any remaining chives and serve.
