Makes12 pieces


  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped sweet pickles
  • 1 teaspoon pickle juice from the jar, or 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Place the eggs into a small saucepan. Fill the pot with water so that it covers the top of eggs by at least one inch. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer and cook for 12 minutes. Immediately place eggs into a bowl and cover with ice and water. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before peeling.

  2. Cut the peeled eggs in half and place yolks into a bowl and whites onto a serving plate.

  3. Mash the egg yolks well with the tines of a fork, adding the rest of the ingredients to form a thick paste.

  4. The yolks can be piped into the egg whites with a pastry bag and tip or simply spooned into the whites. If you will be using a pastry tip, be sure that the pickles are chopped very finely.
