- 1/3 cup mayo
- 1/2 teaspoon vinegar
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon mustard
- Dash of Salt
- Paprika or Cayenne for topping (optional)
- Bring water to a boil and drop in 12 eggs, and then lower heat to a simmer and cover for 10-12 minutes.
- Once done, rinse and chill eggs in an ice bath, to stop the cooking process. Then peel eggs and set them aside.
- Once all eggs are peeled slice each egg in half, and place the yolk in a bowl, and put the egg white halves on a plate. Repeat till all eggs are done.
- In the bowl with egg yolks, grab a fork and break up all the egg yolks until they are crumbly.
- Then add in the cream cheese, mayo, mustard, salt and pepper, and vinegar. Mix until nice and creamy.
- Spoon the mixture into each egg yolk half, and place on a plate or platter. Then add a sprinkle of paprika or cayenne pepper on top for looks and the cayenne will add a kick of flavor.
