Step 1. Boil the eggs 

Just place your eggs in a medium saucepan and fill with enough cold water to cover them with an inch or two. Put the pan on a high heat. Once the water comes to boil, turn the heat to low and cook for about 1 minute. Then simply remove the pan from the heat, then cover and let stand for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, you can fill a large bowl with ice and water to prepare an ice bath or just rinse under cool water continuously for 1 minute.

Step 2. Separate the yolks from the whites

Take the eggs out of the water and tap them gently on the counter to crack the shell in a few places. Next, place them in ice water for at least 1 minute. Remove the eggs from the water bath and peel them. Then cut the eggs in half from top to bottom.

After that, gently squeeze the egg and separate the yolks from the whites. Remove the yolks with your fingers. Then transfer all your egg yolks into a small bowl and place the empty whites on a platter. Mash the yolks with a fork until they are crumbled completely.

Step 3. Mix mayonnaise and mustard

Simply add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise and mustard into a bowl with your egg yolks. Then mix and mash the filling until a smooth paste is formed. If the filling feels too stiff, you can add a small amount of mayonnaise at a time. If needed, add some salt and pepper.

Step 4.Transfer the filling to a plastic or piping bag

Scoop all the filling into a resealable sandwich bag or a piping bag fitted with a 1/2 inch round tip. Then press the bag with your hands, push all the filling into a corner and press any air out of the top. Remember to use a pair of scissors to cut one corner off if you use plastic bags.

Step 5. Pour the filling into the egg whites

Pour the filling into the cup of each egg white, filling the cup so that the filling mounds a little over the top. Next, squeeze the bag from the top to force the filling down. Or you can spoon the filling into the egg whites.

TIP : The eggs can be cooked and peeled up to 1 day in advance and stored in the refrigerator. You can also make the filling up to 1 day ahead, but don’t forget to store it in a piping bag or sealed container and press it on the surface of the refrigerator with plastic wrap.

Step 6. Sprinkle with paprika and fresh herbs 

Just sprinkle a little paprika and some fresh herbs on top of each egg and then you can enjoy your own cooking.
