Deviled Eggs
so today me and my husband started Atkins 72 introduction... He loves Deviled Eggs with Mayo, sweet relish.... I so of figure sweet relish would not be allowed :) so what do you sub for the relish in your Deviled Eggs :dunno:

Mt Olive brand no sugar added sweet relish. They also make sugar-free bread and butter chips and sweet baby gherkins.

The local stores stopped carrying them for awhile, so I drained a jar of dill pickles chunks and poured hot water with splenda and some vinegar in it over them. Let them sit till cool and store in the brine. Fairly good substitute.

ETA now that I think of it, I think it was half water, half vinegar, and then fairly sweet with the splenda.

I love deviled eggs in all the variations.
Asking for recipe tips here at LCF will usually garner any number
of excellent suggestions.
I'm glad for you that hubby is on board.

I would also recommend Mt Olive. I have never seen it locally, but ordered it through Netrition.

third the Mt Olive. we all have our childhood favorites that involve something like pickle relish. for me it's my mom's tuna salad *s*

My local grocery store actually has a store brand of sugar-free relish and bread & butter pickles. They may actually be Mt. Olive in a different packaging. If you can't find it locally you can order online from Netrition as the PP said.

thanks, got to make a trip to Walmart, maybe they have them :)

Vlasic makes sugarfree relish too, or at least they did.

You can also get some regular dill relish and add Splenda to taste. Works pretty well in a pinch!

I have some dill relish I made last year never thought about just adding splenda to it... my husband likes that little bit of sweet taste to it... as for me I don't care for relish of any kind in mine.. :)

yes on Mt.Olive sugar free relish and it's also good in the mock cauliflower potato salad

Love deviled eggs. Also the 'sweet version'. I found an alternative that works for me. I make a chipotle mayo with a bit of sweetener added. Mix the mayo blend with the yolks and add finely chopped dill and red onion. I like to top with Chia seeds. It has a sweet/spicy flavor. I have found the Mt. Olive a bit too sweet for my taste.

mycattaz 09-07-2013 08:18 PM

thank you, I will try that it sounds really good and I have some chia seed :)
