Certainly! Deviled eggs are a classic and delicious appetizer that’s perfect for parties, picnics, or any gathering. Here’s a classic deviled eggs recipe:


  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Paprika, for garnish
  • Chopped fresh parsley or chives, for garnish (optional)


Boil the Eggs:

Place the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan.

Cover the eggs with water, ensuring there’s about an inch of water above the eggs.

Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.

Once boiling, cover the saucepan with a lid, turn off the heat, and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 10-12 minutes.

After that, transfer the eggs to an ice water bath to cool for a few minutes.

Peel the Eggs:

Gently tap each boiled egg on a hard surface to crack the shell.

Peel the eggs, starting from the wider end, where there’s usually an air pocket. The shell should come off easily.

Slice and Prep:

Cut the peeled eggs in half lengthwise.

Carefully remove the yolks and place them in a separate bowl.

Arrange the egg white halves on a serving platter.

Make the Filling:

Mash the egg yolks with a fork until they are crumbly.

Add mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, white vinegar, salt, and pepper to the mashed yolks.

Mix everything together until you have a smooth, creamy consistency.

Fill the Egg Whites:

Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg white halves. You can also use a piping bag for a neater presentation.

Alternatively, you can use a Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off to pipe the filling into the egg whites.


Sprinkle a pinch of paprika over the filled eggs for color and a touch of flavor.

Optionally, garnish with chopped fresh parsley or chives for added freshness.

Chill and Serve:

Refrigerate the deviled eggs for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld.

Serve chilled and enjoy your classic deviled eggs!

Deviled eggs are not only delicious but also customizable. Feel free to experiment with additional ingredients like minced pickles, hot sauce, or finely chopped herbs to suit your taste.
