Deviled Eggs

Deviled EggsDeviled eggs are a classic hors d'oeuvre that guests always go for.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 hard-cooked eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Salt, pepper and paprika to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. With 6 eggs brought up to room temperature add them to a small pot of cold water, covering the eggs by about 2 inches of water.

  3. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolks and place them in a bowl.
  4. Wipe your knife with a damp towel between each cut to make a clean cut.
  5. Set the whites aside on a contoured egg serving tray if you have one.

  7. Refill the whites using about a tablespoon of the yolk mixture for each egg half.
  8. Finish them off by garnishing with chives and a sprinkle of paprika.
