12 large, hard-boiled eggs
1/3 cup (80 mL) mayonnaise
2 Tbsp (30 mL) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 Tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard
2 tsp (10 mL) apple cider vinegar
1 tsp (5 mL) brown sugar
½ tsp (2.5 mL) sea salt
½ tsp (2.5 mL) freshly ground black or white pepper


  • Paprika
  • Cooked bacon slices, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • Nori
  • Sesame seeds
  • Chives
  • Tobiko
  • Jalapeños
  • Pickles
  • Crispy onions


  1. Gently tap the top and bottom of each egg to crack the shell. Lay the egg on its side and gently roll it back and forth, cracking the sides. Gently peel off the shell. You’ll find that the shell has a membrane or skin under it that will separate from the egg white. Once you get under that, peeling is much easier.
  2. After all of the eggs are peeled, slice them in half lengthwise. Use a teaspoon to remove the yolks and place the yolks in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Place the egg whites on a platter or plate, round side down, and set aside.
  3. Add the mayonnaise, butter, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper to the egg yolks and mash them all together until the mixture is smooth. Place a spoonful of the mixture back into the waiting egg whites and top with a sprinkle of toppings as desired.
