Deviled eggs are a quick and easy appetizer that anyone can make—it’s as simple as boiling water! Plus, these savory treats are packed with protein and flavor.

Ingredients
8 hard-boiled eggs
3-4 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons finely diced celery (optional)
2 tablespoons finely diced red onion (optional)
Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Garnish: paprika (optional)
Instructions

Remove shells from hard-boiled eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolks, and transfer to a bowl.

Using a fork or pastry blender, mash the yolks. Add mayonnaise, mustard, cayenne pepper, celery, onion, salt, and black pepper to taste.

Spoon filling into a zip-top bag, cut off a corner tip, then pipe into the egg white halves. Garnish with paprika if you like.

Chill and serve.
