  • 2 Teaspoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 Teaspoon White Pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt

Hard Boil Eggs

  1. Place 6 eggs in a large pot and cover with water. Place on burner and turn to high heat.
  2. Once the water comes to a boil, start a timer for 10 minutes.
  3. Once the 10 minutes is up, remove from heat and pour out the hot water. Fill the pot with ice and refill now with cold water.

  5. Gently crack the shell and peel it completely off.
  6. Store in an airtight container if prepping beforehand. If not, continue you on below.


  1. Slice each hard-boiled egg down the middle longways, placing the yolk into a bowl. Set egg whites aside for later.
  2. Using a fork, mash all egg yolks until mostly smooth with no lumps remaining.
  3. Add in greek yogurt, cream, and Dijon mustard, with spices, and continue using the fork to mash together until smooth and creamy.

To Assemble

  1. Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill each egg white with the yolk filling. Making sure to add a healthy amount to each.
  2. Finish by sprinkling the tops with the remaining paprika, freshly chopped chives, a little salt, and freshly cracked black pepper.
  3. Place on a platter and enjoy!
