Devil of an Egg

I love eggs. They are soooo versatile. This is a very simple recipe that can be used to make deviled eggs or egg salad. I first learned this recipe in middle school cooking class. This was one of those easy recipes that I have a tendency to make and keep in my fridge for week time snacks.



  • 4 Hard boiled eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon of Yellow Mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon for Salt
  • a dash of freshly ground pepper….yes this does make a difference
  • a dash of paprika (optional)


  1. Start with 4 hard boiled eggs
  2. Separate egg white from egg yolk in two different bowls
  3. Add mayonnaise, mustard, salt, pepper, and paprika to egg yolks and mash with a fork until smooth
  4. Use a small ice cream scoop to fill each egg white with the yolk mixture . This will make it look like a full egg yolk. Top with a black olive (optional)
  5. If you decide to use this recipe to make egg salad I recommend adding two more hard boiled egg whites. Mash egg whites in yolk mixture. Enjoy!
