Instructions
  1. In a medium pot, place the eggs in the bottom and cover with water by about an inch.
  2. Bring, uncovered, to a roaring boil.
  3. Place a tight fitting lid on, turn the burner off and remove from the heat completely.
  4. Set a timer for 14 minutes.
  5. Prepare an ice bath for the eggs.
  6. Once the timer is finished, remove the eggs and place in the ice bath. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from ice bath and gently tap the entire surface of the egg on the counter to crack the shell. Peel away the shell from the hard boiled egg. Give it a rinse in the water to get all the shell bits off.
  8. When you get all the eggs peeled, set up a cutting board and knife. Cut the eggs lengthwise down the middle. Gently pop out the yolks into a mixing bowl.
  9. Place the whites on a serving dish.
  10. Mash the yolks with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients, except for the paprika, to the yolks. Mix well, eventually switching to a whisk and then a spatula, making sure to get all the lumps out. You want a really smooth texture.
  11. Place yolk mixture into a plastic resealable bag and push everything towards one of the bottom corners. Snip a small corner off that corner with scissors.
  12. Pipe the yolk mixture into the whites where the yolk once sat. Be generous!
  13. Top with a sprinkle of paprika on each egg.
  14. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving.
  15. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

The older the eggs the better. Not like 2 months old, but if you’re planning to use them in 2 weeks, buy your eggs now. The shell will peel much much easier because the membrane that hold the shell to the egg breaks down the older it gets.

To keep the edges of the egg clean, I wipe my knife with a wet paper towel between cutting each egg.
