Helpful hints

  • Pair with low-sodium crackers, celery sticks or a slice of bread. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
  • You may replace the sour ream with mayonnaise, which will increase the fat content by 7 grams.
  • Counter top egg cookers are available if you are looking for an easy way to make hard-boiled eggs to have on hand.
