  • 2 eggs
  • 1 heaping tsp mayo
  • 1 tiny dollop mustard
  • Pinch salt

  • Slice in half with a sharp serrated knife
  • Squeeze the eggs and the yolks should pop right out
  • Mash the yolks with 1 heaping tsp of mayo, 1 tiny dollop of dijon mustard plus salt, pepper and about 2 drops of apple cider vinegar.
  • Put the mash back into the whites
  • Sprinkle with smoked paprika for the final punch
