  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 to 2 dashes Tabasco sauce
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. snipped fresh chives
  • 3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • Paprika, for garnish
  • Salt, to taste
  • Chopped, fresh chives, for garnish


  1. Rinse eggs and place in a small saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 10-12 minutes. Then, drain and rinse with cold water. Peel eggs and place in the refrigerator, loosely covered, for 15 minutes.
  3. Halve eggs lengthwise, carefully removing yolks. Place yolks in a bowl and mash with a fork. Mix in mustard, Tabasco, salt, pepper, chives, and mayo.
  4. Fill the center of each egg with approximately 1 ½ teaspoons of the egg-yolk mixture, using a spoon or piping bag. Sprinkle with paprika and garnish with whole chives.
