  • Mixing Bowls


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of yellow mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Smoked paprika and fresh dill weed for garnish


  1. Begin by placing the eggs in a saucepan and filling it with water until it's half an inch above the eggs. Bring the water to a rolling boil over high heat, then cover and remove from heat. Allow the eggs to stand covered for about 15 to 17 minutes.

  2. As the eggs sit, prepare a medium bowl filled with ice water. After the resting period, transfer the eggs into the ice water and let them cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Peel the eggs under running cool water.

  3. Slice each egg in half lengthwise. Extract the yolks and put them into a medium bowl, positioning the whites on a serving platter.

  4. Crumble the yolks finely using a fork.

  5. Next, add the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper to the bowl of yolks. Mix these until the concoction is smooth.

  6. When you're close to serving, fill each halved egg white with the creamy yolk mixture. You can use either a spoon or a piping bag for this purpose.

  7. Finally, garnish your creations with a sprinkle of paprika and fresh dill weed.

Homemade with love and served with pride, these deviled eggs are sure to delight your guests and have them coming back for more.
