These were one of the first appetizers I ever made.
My mom and grandmother used to make them this way, and they are super simple and fast too.

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

6 large
hard boiled eggs
1/4 c
plus 1 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp
yellow mustard, hot dog kind
1/8 tsp
each salt and pepper
for garnish:
sliced olives
papkika or dill sprinkled over
caviar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Hard cook eggs by simmering in water for 10 minutes.
2
Put in running cold water to cool enough to handle.
3
Peel the eggs, slice in half lengthwise.
4
Put the yolks in a bowl and mash with a fork.
5
Add your mayo, mustard, salt and pepper. If you like extras now is the time to add them. My family likes them plain and simple.
6
Fill the cavities with yolk mixture. These are so much prettier if piped on, but you can just spoon in teaspoons to fill.
7
Decorate with your choice of toppings, around the holidays I like paprika and dill to give them the colors of the season.
