It baffles me why some like eggs, like egg salad but are not big fans of the spectacular deviled egg. I think they make an eggcellent accompaniment to lunch, a snack, or a great app to kick off a casual dinner, particularly if there is barbecue involved. I like them when I have brunch going on and I have a Bloody Mary next to me, wow, that is a very good combination. I like them a little spicy with a kick so you can adjust or delete the jalapeno if you so desire. Go ahead and try these, they are very good.


12 eggs, hard-boiled cooled in refrigerator
5 tablespoons Hellman’s mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons sweet relish
2 finely chopped jalapeno peppers (optional)
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
paprika to top

How to make 'em:

Once cooled, slice eggs in half removing yolks from each half and placing yolks in a bowl. Set aside halved whites. In the bowl with the yolks add mayonnaise, mustard, white vinegar, relish, jalapenos (or adjust according to your taste), and salt and ground pepper. Mix well with a fork to form a paste.

Add the mixture to a pastry bag with a large opening (I prefer a star attachment). If you don’t have a pastry bag, fill a corner of a zip-lock bag and snip the corner with scissors. Fill egg white halves with mixture making a small mound. Sprinkle-filled eggs with paprika and serve. Serves 12 – 15.
