Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs or eggs mimosa originated in ancient Rome. They are still popular across Europe. In France they are called oeuf mimosa; in Romania, oua umplute (stuffed eggs); in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany, they are usually filled with caviar and served in a remoulade sauce and are known as “Russian Eggs.” In the United States Deviled Eggs are so popular that there are special dishes and carrying trays designed specifically for them.


For 12 Deviled Eggs

6 Large Hard Boiled Eggs

3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise

1 Teaspoon Djon Mustard

1 Teaspoon Malt Vinegar

Salt & Pepper to Taste


Boil eggs on high heat for about 15 minutes. Promptly chill eggs so that the yolks stay bright yellow. Chill for about an hour. Remove eggs from their shells and halve lengthwise with a sharp knife. CAREFULLY remove the yolks (like they are little babies) and place in a medium bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork and add mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt & pepper. Carefully spoon the yolk mixture back into the egg white halves and garnish with a light dusting of paprika. Store in the refrigerator. *Note…be careful when using the salt on the deviled eggs as it is easy to over salt.
