- ¼ cup grated parmesan
- 1 t. dried parsley
- 1 t. dried oregano
- 1 t. salt
- Minced onion to taste
- 1 lb. ground beef (or ground turkey or other meat)
- Olive oil
- 15 oz. can tomato sauce
Combine eggs, parmesan, seasonings, and onion. Stir in meat and mix well. Wet hands and mix small one inch meatballs. Heat oil and brown meatballs. Heat tomato sauce to a boil, mix in seasonings to taste such as additional oregano or Italian seasoning.

Spooky Deviled Eggs
Get creative with deviled eggs for Halloween by topping them with an olive spider or eyeball!
Minutes to Prepare: 25
Number of Servings: 24
1 dozen fresh eggs 3 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise 1 tsp sweet pickle relish paprika to taste
Hard boil eggs. (Boil for 15 minutes in a large soup pot; at 14 minutes, fill a large bowl with ice water. When eggs are done, fish them out one at a time and drop them into the ice water bowl. Eggs will melt the ice and warm the water; replace water with more cold tap water when this happens. Keep in water until ready to peel.) Peel eggs and cut in half. Remove yolks and set aside; arrange egg white halves on a serving platter. Combine yolks, mayonnaise and pickle relish in a large bowl. Mash egg yolks with fork and mix well with other ingredients. Spoon into egg white halves and top with shakes of paprika to taste. Number of Servings: 24
For fewer calories, try replacing some or all mayo with mustard, olive or grapeseed oil (providing healthy fats!) and see how that tastes. Experiment with a variety of seasonings to add interest and enjoyment to your eggs!
