  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • dash of fresh black pepper
  • garnish: paprika


  • Place eggs in the bottom of a saucepan; add enough cool water to cover eggs.
  • Bring to a boil; cover, remove saucepan from heat, and let stand 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes, drain the water then fill the saucepan with cold water and ice. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  • Tap each egg firmly on the counter until cracks form all over the shell. Peel under cold running water.
  • Slice eggs in half lengthwise, and carefully remove yolks.
  • Mash yolks with mayonnaise. Add relish, mustard, salt, and pepper; stir well.
  • Spoon yolk mixture into egg whites.
  • Sprinkle with a bit of paprika.



You could boil one extra egg. I use the yolk (but not the whites) to help add a bit extra filling.
