My Husband's Deviled Egg Solution: Potato Angels!

What you need: 

6 new potatoes, peeled and halved
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
dash hot sauce
dash garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
dash turmeric , optional, for yellow color
paprika, for dusting

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and grease a cookie sheet. Coat all sides of each potato with olive oil. Place potatoes face down on prepared cookie sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, or until soft (but not too mushy).
2. While the potatoes are roasting, mix the rest of the ingredients (except paprika) together. When the potatoes are done, allow to cool a bit, and then use a sharp knife to cut into the flat side of each potato and then hollow it out with a spoon. You want to be left with a little cup-shaped potato.
3. Add the scooped-out potato to your mayo/mustard mix and blend well. You can then fill the hollowed out potato shells with the mixture piping it on with a cake decorating bag, or do it like he did and just blop it in there. Dust each potato with paprika.
You can refrigerate them for later, or eat them right away like we did! Bring to a potluck and watch your friends grin with delight!
*New potatoes are the very thin skinned potatoes. I've seen them called Klamath Potatoes as well. Try to get ones that are similar in size and shape for uniformity (egg shaped?!).
Source of recipe: My husband was having a Deviled Egg craving, and decided to try making a replica using potatoes instead of hard boiled eggs. I was very skeptical, but quite impressed with the results! It's quite brilliant, actually.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Just delicious.  I found the perfect egg shaped potatoes and made these up and have attempted not to eat the entire plateful in one sitting.  I'm hoping I can save some for my son....we'll see.  Really a simple delicious recipe that you can modify easily.

This might be one of the best recipes on this site...and i have cooked a lot of them! it's a real favorite. i (and my non veg friends) was so surprised at how much the flavor resembled deviled eggs. in fact, we all decided that we prefer the potatoes!! Thanks!

YAY!
I always read these reviews to my husband and he is so very proud.

WOW, that DOES get the craving!!  I think like others, this is pure genious.  Thank you thank you thank you thank you.  And I never even liked the white part of the egg, just the yoke, and now I gobble down the whole thing!  OMG these are addictive.

Amazing!! Even my omnivorous (and picky) boyfriend LOVED them. They look like devilled eggs but taste better!!! I only made a couple and they got eaten fast so I didn't get to take any pictures!

This is such a brilliant idea! ...Unfortunately something went a little wrong when I was making these and they didn't look anywhere near as nice as all the ones in the photos. Getting the potato out of the skin was tricky and time consuming! Since I was just making them for me I ended up just mashing up the roasted potatoes with the 'egg' filling in. It was tasty like that and I might try and make some mashed potatoes like this again.

5 STARS.....no doubt about it. This was a big hit for my family. I knew this was going to be a keeper before making it, so I doubled the recipe. SO glad I did! I added a bit of diced celery and pickled jalapeno to 4 of the angels. It was very good both ways, with and without. I also stuck a few in the fridge to try them cold. STILL just as good. My oldest son said "These are better than deviled eggs!" He was extremely happy with them. So was I!
