  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp vinegar white or apple cider
  • 1 tsp mustard yellow or dijon
  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Cover with enough water so there's at least one inch above the eggs. Bring to a boil, cover, then turn off heat and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Immediately add cooked eggs to ice bath for at least one minute.
  • Gently crack egg shells and carefully peel the eggs. Pat eggs dry with a paper towel if needed.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice eggs in half lengthwise. Gently remove yolks and add to medium bowl, and reserve egg whites on a serving platter.
  • Mash the egg yolks using a fork. Add mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper and mix until smooth.
  • Using a spoon or pastry bag, disperse egg yolk mixture into egg white cups. Sprinkle with paprika and serve.
