  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) fat-free mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground mustard
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt
  • 1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) pepper


  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, place eggs in single layer. Add cold water to at least 1 inch above eggs. Cover and heat to boiling; turn off heat. If necessary, remove pan from heat to prevent further boiling. Cover and let stand 20 minutes. Immediately run cold water over eggs or place them in ice water until completely cooled.

    To remove egg shells, crackle shells by tapping gently all over; roll between hands to loosen. Peel, starting at large end. Cut lengthwise in half. (For a different twist, eggs can be cut crosswise in half. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each egg so it will stand up without falling over.) Transfer yolks to small bowl; mash with fork. Set egg whites aside.

    Stir mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper into yolks. Fill whites with egg yolk mixture, heaping it lightly. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Tip: Very fresh eggs are difficult to peel. So plan ahead, purchase eggs a week earlier so they'll peel easily. Another trick is to peel eggs under cold running water. To prevent eggs from tipping on the serving plate, cut a thin slice from the bottom of each egg white half before filling.
  • Tip 2
    Denver Deviled Eggs: Mix 1 tablespoon each finely chopped red bell pepper, green bell pepper and fully cooked ham into egg yolk mixture.
  • Tip 3
    Deviled Eggs with Olives: Omit mustard. Mix 1/4 cup finely chopped ripe or pimiento-stuffed olives and 1/4 teaspoon curry powder into egg yolk mixture.
  • Tip 4
    Zesty Deviled Eggs: Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley and 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish into egg yolk mixture.
