  • 8 large hard boiled eggs peeled
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp dijon or yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar apple cider is a good substitute
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp minced fresh dill optional
  • pinch regular or smoked paprika


  • Slice the hard boiled eggs in half, lengthwise, into oval shapes. Remove yolks and add to a bowl or food processor. We find the end of a small spoon works well for removing the yolks.
  • Puree, grate, or mash the yolks. Add mayonnaise, dijon mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper, and dill, if using. Stir well to combine. Mixture should be creamy, but not runny.
  • Add egg yolk filling to piping bag fitted with a piping tip, or a resealable plastic bag. If using the plastic bag, snip a small corner off of the bag. Pipe filling into the hollow part of the egg whites. Alternately, a spoon can be used to dollop the filling in.
  • Sprinkle deviled eggs with paprika and serve immediately.
