Eggs are one of my favorite things to eat, and this appetizer is timeless. Deviled eggs are great for showers because you can prepare them ahead. Just garnish them right before serving.

Tip: Before you cook the eggs, poke a hole in each end of the eggs with a pin and they’ll be easier to peel after they’re cooked.


  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • ½ teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh dill, plus sprigs for garnish
  • Paprika, for garnish


Place the eggs in a large pot with cold water and bring to a boil, uncovered. Turn off the heat, cover, and let stand for 11 minutes.

Remove the eggs from the pot and immediately plunge them into an ice bath until the eggs are completely cool.

Remove the shells and slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks and place into the bowl of a food processor. Set the egg whites aside.

Add the mustard, mayonnaise, shallot, relish, Tabasco, cider vinegar, salt, pepper, and chopped dill to the food processor and pulse until smooth.

Spoon or pipe the egg mixture into the egg white and garnish with dill sprigs and a dash of paprika. Serve on an egg tray.

Deviled Eggs Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Deviled Eggs Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
