  • 12 eggs*
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs mustard*
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dill
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Paprika for garnish


  1. Place eggs in a medium-large pot. Fill the pot with water so that the eggs are covered by about an inch of water. Bring water to a boil and let the eggs boil for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and place eggs in cold water adding ice if you have it. Let the eggs cool completely and then peel.
  2. Once peeled, cut the hardboiled eggs in half, separating the white from the yolk. In a medium sized bowl mash all the yolks.
  3. Add the mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice to the yolks and stir until creamy. If the mixture doesn’t look fluffy enough you may need to add more mayo or mustard. Taste it and add more of what it needs. I usually start with adding a little more mayo if I need more volume.
  4. Add the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, dill, salt and pepper to the yolk and stir until fully combined. Refrigerate mixture for at least 20 minutes.
  5. Put a dollop of the yolk mixture into each egg white and sprinkle with paprika.
  6. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*I usually like to hard-boil 14 eggs, that way if some don’t peel nicely I don’t have to use them. *You can use yellow or Dijon mustard- both work great!
