First, make the hard-boiled eggs. One easy way is to use the Instant pot method, or you can make this perfect hard-boiled eggs recipe in the oven. Otherwise, here's how I go about it so that they are perfect every time. Put the eggs in a pot of water and immediately cover the pot with a lid. Bring the water to a boil with the eggs in it. Once the water has just started to boil, leave the eggs on with the boiling water for about 1 to 2 minutes and then remove them from the heat (leaving the cover on the pot). Let them sit for about 10 minutes.
Cool hard-boiled eggs in an ice bath — a bowl with cold water and ice cubes. After letting them chill in the ice water, peel them immediately. Be careful not to break the eggs!
Carefully slice eggs in half. You will want to cut them in half the long way. Using a small spoon, separate egg yolks and put them in a large mixing bowl. Set aside the egg white halves for later use.
In a small bowl, mash yolks along with the mayo, dijon mustard plus salt and pepper. Once it’s well mixed, fill a pastry bag with a Wilton 4B tip and pipe yolk mixture into the egg whites. I find it easiest to do this using a pastry bag. You could also put it into a sandwich bag and cut the corner if you don't have a pastry bag or tip available.
After you have filled the egg halves, they are typically garnished with chives. I like this for a classic recipe. But this is where you can again get creative! Make sure to serve the deviled eggs nice and cold!
I like to use an egg platter to hold the egg whites. It makes it much easier to manage. The hard-boiled eggs can be slippery little guys!
We used a Wilton 4B tip but you can use a different piping tip if you prefer.
If the eggs will be sitting out at a potluck it might be a good idea to set your platter over ice to keep them nice and chilled.
