Deviled Eggs with Pickled Onions

8 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tbsp plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt
2 tbsp canola mayonnaise
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp Sriracha or hot pepper sauce
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp finely chopped chives

1. Add water to a large saucepan to a depth of 1 inch; set a large vegetable steamer in pan. Add eggs to steamer. Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat. Steam eggs, covered, 16 minutes. Remove from heat. Place eggs in a large ice water-filled bowl for 3 min.

2. While eggs steam, combine 1/4 c. water, vinegar, and sugar in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until boiling. Stir in onion. Let stand at room temperature 15 min. Drain.

3. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, Sriracha, pepper, and salt in a medium bowl, stirring well to combine.

4. Peel eggs. Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Add 6 yolks to yogurt mixture. Mash with a fork until very smooth. Stir in 2 tbsp red onion. Spoon mixture into egg white halves (about 1 tbsp in each half). Garnish with remaining red onion and chives.

Quick pickled onions, creamy Greek yogurt, and fewer yolks make these stuffed eggs more heavenly.|Sidney Fry, MS, RD Cooking Light magazine

Lord, they do like their deviled eggs down South: a luxe, creamy concoction of mayo, pickles, and mashed yolk piled into a perfect egg-white boat. And, of course, this snack is also favored on Easter and Passover tables, and then bound to pop up at any good backyard summer feast. Only problem: At 150 calories of yum a pop, they're an indulgence, and they tend to be served in large numbers. Our challenge was clear.
