1 dozen Eggs
2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard or to taste
6 Tablespoons Mayonnaise or to taste
1 Medium Shallot diced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Boil the eggs until hard, about ten minutes, but you will need to adjust for altitude. Let the eggs cool a little then peel. Let the eggs cool the rest of the way. While the eggs are cooling, sauté the shallots in a little butter or olive oil until soft and slightly brown. Once cool, gently cut the eggs in half and scoop the yolk out into a bowl. Set the whites aside to be filled later. Stir the mustard, mayonnaise, shallots, salt and pepper into the egg yolks. Adjust ingredients to taste. Fill the centers of the egg whites with the yolk mixture. Then top each of the egg halves with a sprinkle of paprika. Enjoy!
