Mustard and miracle whip added to the egg yolks, topped with a sprinkle of paprika. Don’t ask me exact amounts, I just taste a bit and add in what I think it needs. I mix it up and shove it all into a little ziplock baggie and snip off a corner of the bag to pipe it into the egg half.

Steam the eggs rather than boil them. I steam eggs for 15 minutes then cool them under running cold water right away. This way the shell is easy to remove  and there is no blue ring around the yolk.

Make the filling ahead of time but pipe it into the whites  just before serving.

I’ve never steamed eggs, but I put them all into the pot and once it starts to boil I turn it off and let them sit for 10 minutes. Easy shell removal, no gross coloring.

I boil my eggs by putting them in cold water, heating to a boil, cooking at a boil for 9 minutes, and then rinsing them in cold water. This is enough to cook the yolk but not for it to get that greyish film. 

Letting them sit in ice water for a few minutes helps the shell come off easier. If you start peeling and it’s sticking and pulling off chunks of egg, try working the shell off gently under cold running water.

I also add a dash of garlic powder, some salt, and white pepper to my yolk mix, and I  do half and half mayo and salad dressing/Miracle Whip and I like a spicy brown mustard rather than a yellow mustard.

@oracle:  Place the filling in a ziploc bag and squeeze out the excess air. Cut a corner for piping when it’s time to serve. That way you don’t get any drying out of the filling.
