Serves 16 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 15


1 can (4 ounces) tiny shrimp, drained
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt**
2 tablespoons chopped canned black olives
1 tablespoon chopped chives
2 teaspoons fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Lettuce leaf, if desired
Sprigs of fresh thyme or chives, for garnish, if desired

Peel and cut the eggs in half lengthwise; remove the yolks. Set whites aside, carefully keeping them intact.

Mash yolks in a small bowl with a fork. Add shrimp, yogurt, olives, chives, thyme, dry mustard and black pepper; blend well. Place the egg white halves on a plate lined with leaf lettuce, if desired.

Mound each egg white half with the shrimp-yolk mixture. Garnish with thyme or chives, if desired.

*To hard cook eggs: Cover eggs with cold water in a saucepan. Bring water to a boil. Lower heat; simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Plunge eggs into cold water to stop cooking and to keep yolks from discoloring.

**Tip: If you prefer, use fat-free mayonnaise, or use half fat-free plain yogurt and half mayonnaise.

Long an Easter tradition, stuffed hard-cooked eggs -- served on crisp leafy greens -- make the perfect springtime appetizer. Heaped high with a shrimp-yolk filling, they’re rich in protein and zesty in flavor.
