- 12 large eggs
- 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Dash of pepper
- Paprika, for garnish
Step 1: Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Add water to a depth of 3 inches, enough to just cover the eggs. Bring to a boil; cover, remove from heat, and let stand 15 minutes.
Step 2: After the 15 minutes, immediately drain and fill the saucepan with cold water and ice.
Step 3: Firmly tap each egg on the counter until cracks form all over the shell. Peel under cold running water.
Step 4: Cut eggs in half lengthwise, and carefully remove yolks. Mash yolks with mayonnaise. Add mustard, relish, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
Step 5: Spoon egg yolk mixture into egg whites. Dust with paprika before serving, if desired.
