Deviled eggs go great with sports. You can make them in advance, there’s minimal fuss, and you can flavor them with whatever it is you like.

For this recipe I added a bit of spice to the classic for all the heat-seekers like me out there.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 12 hard-boiled eggs, halved length-wise and yolks removed
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup chives, finely chopped


In a medium-sized bowl, combine the egg yolks, mayonnaise, and mustard. Blend well with a rubber spatula until the mixture is smooth. Mix in the mustard powder, cayenne, and jalapeño. Season with salt and pepper.

Lay the egg white halves on a large serving plate. Using a small spoon evenly divide the yolk mixture among the egg whites. Sprinkle each egg with a pinch of chives and serve. 

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.
