    Ingredients for Mom's Deviled Egg Recipe

    • 12 large eggs, hard boiled and sliced lengthwise, yolks scooped into a bowl and mashed
    • 5 to 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 2 teaspoons quality Dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon Maille or other whole grain mustard
    • thinly sliced Cornichon, Italian parsley leaves, or sweet paprika for garnish


    The Method

      Read here on how to boil perfect hardboiled eggs every time.

      • Have ready an egg plate of flight board on which you will display/serve from.
      • If using a piping bag, fit with an .21 open star tip. If piping without a tip, prepare a small plastic baggie.
      • To the mashed hard cooked yolks, add the mayonnaise starting with 5 tablespoons. Add both mustards and stir, continuing to mash and smooth the filling out. I find using the tines of a fork work best.
      • Taste the filling. If it requires additional mayonnaise to taste, add the additional tablespoon. If you prefer the mustard profile, add additional Maille or Dijon or both by the teaspoon.
      • Pipe or spoon into the whites and arrange on the prepared dish or flight board.
      • Garnish with a dash of sweet paprika or thinly sliced Cornichon and Italian parsley leaves.
