I’ve found yet another wonderful use for my addictive Sofrito sauce. Both I and the hubs loved these eggs! They’ll be so nice to have ready made on a plate in the fridge for snacks! Wonderful for parties as well. This recipe is OK for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets and Primal as well. Paleo folks will want to omit the Ranch dressing.

6 large eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and neatly cut in half
2 T. my Homemade Mayonnaise
1 tsp. my Ranch Buttermilk Dressing (or dash onion and garlic powder)
1 T. my Sofrito
1/4 tsp. wine vinegar (or 1/4 tsp. Dijon mustard)
Pinch glucomannan powder (1/16 tsp. or less! optional, to thicken filling)
1 sprig cilantro or parsley (for garnish)
DIRECTIONS: Boil, chill, and peel eggs as you do normally. Slice neatly into halves. With a knife point, tip the yolk part onto a paper plate. Set the whites onto your serving platter for now. To the egg yolks add the mayo, the Ranch dressing, the Sofrito and wine vinegar. Mash and blend until smooth with a fork. Decide if it is stiff enough to pipe. If not, stir in a tiny pinch of glucomannan powder and wait a couple minutes for it to stiffen up. Fill a piping bag with large tip or a quart plastic bag with a 1/4″ hole cut in the corner (or a cookie press with a large decorative tip) and pipe about 1-1½ T. of the filling (in a circular motion) into each egg white half. You can optionally garnish the plate with chopped parsley or cilantro, and for even more color, 2 cherry tomato halves.
