  • 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. See notes for instant pot instructions. *

  • Add mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice to the mashed 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.

Tips and Tricks
  • *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!
  • *How to hard boil eggs in an instant pot?
    If using an instant pot to hard boil the eggs, place the eggs on top of the trivet, add 1 cup of water, then set the instant pot to cook on High Pressure for 5 minutes, allow it to naturally release for 5 minutes, and then cool in an ice bath for 5 minutes. Allow eggs to cool completely before smoking them.
  • * Add 1 Jalapeno minced, do a taste test, then add more if it needs it. You can also try using some pickled jalapeno for an entirely different taste.
  • *You can dollop the yolk mixture in with a spoon or use a piping bag with the tip cut off to make filling easy!
