Deviled Eggs

12 hard-boiled eggs

1/2 cup mayonnaise

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons minced dill pickles

splash of vinegar

pinch of cayenne pepper

pinch of salt

optional: paprika and/or chopped chives

Peel eggs and very carefully slice eggs in half lengthwise, keeping the whites intact as much as possible. Place whites on tray, holes up. Drop yolks into a small mixing bowl and smash with a fork. Add remaining ingredients and mix with fork until smooth. You can fill the egg whites by using a small spoon or a pastry bag. Sprinkle with paprika or chopped chives for a little color, and serve or refrigerate. Serves 6.
