Deviled eggs or devilled eggs, also known as stuffed eggs, Russian eggs, or dressed eggs, are hard-boiled eggs that have been shelled, cut in half, and filled with a paste made from the egg yolks mixed with other ingredients such as mayonnaise and mustard. They are generally served cold as a side dish, appetizer or a main course, often for holidays or parties. This dish is a very popular in Europe and North America. I personally love it and is always on my list to prepared and specially when I have to make something on a short notice. They are super easy and delicious to prepare any time of the year for any occasions.
You can top them with a caviar to make them extra elegant canape, or you favorite toppings add a glass of bubbles and your fancy cocktail hour is done.

Get a pot of cold water and place the eggs. Bring the water to boil and turn the heat to medium and boil the eggs for 7 minutes. While the eggs are boiling prepare ice water bath and set a side. After 7 minutes turn the heat off and let the eggs stay in the hot water for another minute. After that take the eggs out and place it in the cold bath. Once the eggs are cooled completely , peel them and sliced them in half lengthwise.
Scoop out all the yolks with a small coffee spoon and put it in a small bowl.
Mash them with a fork and add the Dijon mustard, Mayonnaise, salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder and if you like to add the chives.
Combine everything to a smooth feeling( you can use a blender if you like)
Using a piping bag, small spoon or small scoop start filling the egg whites with the yolk mixture. Sprinkle some of the Spanish paprika on top or add some of your favorite topping. Place them in a nice platter and serve them while they are nice and fresh.
You can store the deviled eggs for up to two days in the fridge, just sealed them very well. This means you can make them the day before a party or gathering. That makes them one of the easiest appetizers to prepare and one of my top favorite ones.
