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.

These were awesome.

I made these twice. The best was using the tiny little red potatoes and leaving the skin on. The smallness of each one was great because you could just pop the whole thing in your mouth. Leaving the skin on was great because, well, I just like the taste of the skin.

Also, I scooped out the insides of the potatoes before I baked them (and I baked the scooped out insides along with the outsides). This was easier than scooping out the insides after baking. It also reduced the baking time a bit.

overall = A+++

I made these for a reunion lunch today.  Big Hit!  Very Yummy!  Cute! etc. . .  I didn't peel the potatoes, but they would have peeled very easily after they cooled (I boiled them in salted water).  I lightly salted the shells before filling them and added about 1 1/2 teaspoon yeast flakes for a fuller flavor and some sweet relish too.  Next time I may try a little minced green olive.  Thanks for the recipe.  I hope you make it to the best recipes list on the home page!

Delicious and amazing recipe!  My double batch didn't last long at the potluck, I got many compliments from the non-vegans.  I added a bit of sweet pickle relish, used sweet vidalia onions, and added turmeric for color, and piped the filling into the shells using a ziplock bag with one corner cut off.  Peeling every baby potato was tedious, but the result looked really convincing... next time I might try saving myself the trouble and leave the nutrient-rich peels on :)

Thanks so much for the great recipe.

I left the peels on (lazy as well) but they started to slide off when handling them after they were baked so I took them all the way off.

A bit more unhealthy, but I'm wondering how these would work by cooking the potatoes in the microwave instead.. (it would only take 8 minutes instead of 30+)

Has anyone tried it that way yet?

( I want these soooo bad, but dont have an oven right now! :( )

I'm not sure about microwaving them, but you could try boiling them in water?

What a brilliant recipe! The filling mimics really well the whipped up yolk from deviled eggs,  and I even got rave reviews from my non-vegan pals. Definitely a recipe I plan on making again soon!
