In our opinion, there's no dish as simple and classic–or delicious–as the deviled egg. It's the quintessential treat for every gathering, big or small.

8 large eggs

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon

35% cream

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper


Place room temperature eggs in medium saucepan over high heat and cover with cold water. Bring water to boil and cook exactly 6 minutes, then transfer to an ice bath for perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs. Peel eggs and cut lengthwise in half. Remove yolks and place in small bowl. Mash with fork, add mayonnaise, cream, Dijon and salt and blend well. With small spoon, fill egg halves equally with yolk mixture. Chill 30 minutes before serving. To serve, sprinkle with pepper.
