Time to Finish Any Easter Eggs

If you still have any hard-cooked eggs left from the Easter bunny's visit, it's time to use them up. Here's a simple recipe for Deviled Eggs. Everybody loves to eat them but nobody ever makes them. I use the same dressing for making Egg Salad for sandwiches.

Deviled Eggs

6 hard cooked eggs, peeled and cut in half
3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon honey mustard
Fresh chives

Carefully remove the yolks from the whites and set the whites aside.

Placed the yolks in a medium bowl and mash with a fork until no lumps remain or press through a strainer. Stir in the mayonnaise, sugar, salt, mustard and vinegar.

Using a heaping tablespoonful mound the yolk mixture in the whites. Garnish with fresh chives and sprinkle with paprika if desired.

Arrange deviled eggs on an egg plate or on a bed of shredded lettuce.
