  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar, apple cider or white wine
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Paprika, for garnish (sweet or smoked paprika)


  • Fill a large saucepan with about 3 inches of water. Bring to a slow boil over medium-high heat. Using a ladle or large spoon, gently lower the eggs into the pan, making sure they are in a single layer and not crowded. Bring the water back to a slow boil and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare a bowl of ice water. When the eggs are done cooking, carefully transfer them to the ice water and let them cool for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the eggs from the ice bath and carefully peel them. Slice in half lengthwise. Scoop the egg yolks into a bowl and arrange the egg whites on a plate or platter.
  • Add the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper to the egg yolks and mash together with the back of a fork until smooth.
  • Use a spoon to fill the center hole of the egg whites. Alternatively, spoon the yolk mixture into a piping bag with a tip and pipe the filling into the egg whites.
  • Sprinkle the tops with paprika and serve.
