  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash hot sauce optional
  • Paprika sprinkled, for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives optional, for garnish


  • Bring a medium pot of water to boil.
  • Carefully add the eggs, then turn the heat down to low and simmer for 12 minutes. You want bubbles, but not be a rolling boil.
  • While the eggs are cooking, prepare an ice bath. Fill a large bowl about halfway with ice, then add water.
  • Transfer the cooked eggs to the ice bath using a spoon or a mesh strainer. Let cool in the ice bath for 10-15 minutes. At this point, you can transfer to a bowl and store the eggs in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • To prepare the deviled eggs, start by peeling the hard boiled eggs. Rinse under cold water to make sure no shell remains.
  • Slice each egg in half lengthways. Remove the yolks and place into a small bowl.
  • Mash the yolks with a fork and mix in the mayonnaise, mustard and vinegar. Taste and add hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the yolk mixture to a piping bag with a large star tip and pipe into each egg cavity. If you don't have a piping bag, you can make one by filling a resealable plastic bag with the filling, then snip off a corner and squeeze the filling through the opening.
  • Arrange the eggs on a serving platter and sprinkle with paprika and chopped chives.


  • These eggs are best eaten the day they are prepared.
  • To store leftovers, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
  • In the interest of food safety, don't let them sit out longer than 2 hours.
