You can do almost anything with dressed eggs by adding curry powder, or chives, or capers. But this is the recipe I grew up with.

  1. Cut hardboiled eggs in half.
  2. Mash the yolks until smooth. Moisten with ¼ cup mayonnaise and a little sweet pickle juice. Season with salt and cayenne.
  3. Fill the whites with filling and chill.
  4. To hard cook the eggs: Put the eggs in a heavy saucepan and cover them with about an inch of water. Bring the water to a boil, cover the pan and remove from heat. Let the eggs stand 20 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.


  • 12 hard-cooked eggs
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon (or so) sweet pickle juice
