Try your hand at home with this easy recipe from local chef/caterer and cookbook author Gwen Kenneally of Back to the Kitchen Catering.
12 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons minced dill pickles
splash of vinegar
pinch of cayenne pepper
pinch of salt
optional: paprika and/or chopped chives
Peel eggs and very carefully slice eggs in half lengthwise, keeping the whites intact as much as possible. Place whites on tray, holes up. Drop yolks into a small mixing bowl and smash with a fork. Add remaining ingredients and mix with fork until smooth. You can fill the egg whites by using a small spoon or a pastry bag. Sprinkle with paprika or chopped chives for a little color, and serve or refrigerate. Serves 6.
Yeah, you heard us right.
