Deviled Eggs

Your choice of paprika will determine this hors d’oeuvre’s depth of flavor. You can garnish with any kind (hot or sweet Hungarian, hot or sweet smoked, or regular), but the better the quality, the more complex the flavor will be.

ingredients

6 large eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/8 tsp cayenne

 

preparation

Cover eggs with cold water by 1-1/2 inches in a 3-quart heavy saucepan and bring to a rolling boil, partially covered. Reduce heat to low and cook eggs, covered completely, 30 seconds. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, 15 minutes. Transfer eggs with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking and let stand 5 minutes. Peel eggs and halve lengthwise. Carefully remove yolks and mash in a bowl with a fork. Add mayonnaise, mustard, and cayenne and stir with fork until smooth, then season with salt and pepper. Fill pastry bag with yolk mixture and pipe into egg whites.
