A tray of classic deviled eggs is always a welcome sight at any party, picnic, or cookout.

Yield:

16 eggs

Ingredients

8 hard-boiled eggs
3-4 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons finely diced celery (optional)
2 tablespoons finely diced red onion (optional)
Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Garnish: paprika (optional)

Instructions

Slice hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise, carefully remove the yolks, and transfer to a bowl.

Using a fork or pastry blender, mash the yolks. Add mayonnaise, mustard, cayenne pepper, celery, onion, salt, and black pepper to taste.

Spoon filling into a zip-top bag, cut off a corner tip, then pipe into the egg white halves. Garnish with paprika if you like.

Chill and serve.
