Protein-Packed Deviled Eggs


Bariatric-Friendly Snack

Dietary Concerns: This recipe is gluten-free, low-carb, and high-protein, making it an excellent choice for bariatric diets. The recipe uses Greek yogurt in place of traditional mayonnaise to reduce fat and increase protein content. Always check individual ingredient labels for specific dietary needs or allergies.

These Protein-Packed Deviled Eggs are a delicious and satisfying snack designed for bariatric patients. By using Greek yogurt and turkey bacon, we've increased the protein content while keeping the carbs and fat in check. The result is a creamy, savory, and flavorful bite-sized treat that supports your weight loss goals.

Friendly Advice: Make sure to let the eggs cool completely before peeling to ensure a smooth and easy process. If you're preparing these ahead of time, store the egg white halves and yolk mixture separately in the refrigerator, and assemble just before serving for the best presentation and texture.
