Servings: 12 pumpkins
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 2 tsp. yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- salt to taste
- black pepper to taste
- chopped chives for the pumpkin stems
- sprinkled paprika OR red cayenne pepper optional
Peel and slice hard boiled eggs lengthwise (see notes below).
Separate yolks into a separate bowl. Add mustard, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper to the yolks. Mash and mix thoroughly with a fork.
With a spoon, scoop about 2 teaspoons of the yolk mixture and gently roll it until it is round. Place in an empty egg white.
Lightly press the yolk mixture down with your finders to fill the egg whites.
With a knife, make 3-4 indents to the eggs to make them look like pumpkins. Top each egg with a 1/4-1/2 inch piece of chive. Sprinkle with paprika or cayenne pepper if you prefer spicy eggs. Enjoy!
HOW TO BOIL EGGS:
*Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Make sure there is enough water to cover at least 1 inch above the eggs. With a large or wooden spoon, carefully place the eggs in the boiling water. Reduce heat to medium-low and remove lid. Set a timer for 16 minutes and let the eggs cook. Once the eggs are done, immediately place them under cold water for about 2-3 minutes until the eggs are cooled.
HOW TO PEEL BOILED EGGS:
*Gently crack the egg on a hard surface and peel with your hands under cold water. I like to place my peeled and cleaned eggs on a paper towel. Once all of the eggs are peeled and cleaned, pat with a paper towel and place in an airtight container or bowl until you are ready to use or eat them.
