- A dozen eggs
- paprika for garnish
- salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons chopped pickles
- hot sauce like Tabasco
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sugar
Start by filling a pot with water. Make sure that it won't overload but will be enough for the eggs to submerge. Then bring it to a boil. You don't need to season your water with anything. And after it starts boiling, gently submerge your eggs into the pot, and let it simmer with the lid.
After ten minutes, turn off the stove and drain the water. Quickly run your eggs under cold water until they cool down.
Peel your eggs and cut them in halves. Scoop out the yolks from the white and put them in a bowl. Gently mush the yolk, and mix them with sugar, vinegar, mustard, mayonnaise, and hot sauce. Add salt and pepper to reach the flavor your want.
If you want the deviled egg to be a bit more rustic, you can leave some small chunks of yolk for texture. But you also can make it very pretty by making it very smooth.
Spoon a generous portion of the yolk mixture back into the half-white. But you also can use a piping bag for a fancy egg. Finish it by lightly sprinkling paprika on top. And voila, you have deviled eggs ready to serve.
