  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • dash hot sauce, optional


  • Add the eggs to a pot and add enough water to cover 1" above the tops of the eggs.
  • Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat to keep at a medium boil, uncovered. Set your timer to boil the eggs for 7 minutes. While you wait for the timer to go off prepare a bowl of ice water large enough to fit all of the eggs.
  • Add the eggs to the ice water and let cool for at least 10 minutes.
  • Peel and dry the eggs. Slice them in half lengthwise and remove the yolks to a separate bowl. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, spices, and hot sauce to the yolks and mash with a fork or spoon until combined.
  • Fill the centers of the egg whites with the yolk mixture, either using two spoons or using a piping bag with a star tip. Sprinkle the tops with paprika and serve.


Deviled eggs can be made one day ahead of time and kept in the fridge.
