Servings: 12 deviled eggs

  • pot - for boiling 6 eggs
  • sharp knife and cutting board
  • mesh strainer
  • mixing bowl
  • pastry piping bag and tip


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ tsp. spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tsp. sour cream
  • 24 pink peppercorns - or red bell pepper punched with a straw into "berries"
  • 12 tiny parsley leaves
  • salt and fresh ground pepper - to taste


  • Add 6 large eggs to a pot of cool water, then place them on the stove and boil them over MEDIUM heat for 20 minutes (that’s 20 minutes from when you turn the heat on to turning it off). Once boiled, place them in a bowl of cold water for 5-10 minutes.
  • Once the eggs are cool, remove the shells by carefully tapping around the center and peeling. Crack and peel very carefully so the egg is pristine and free of tears and dents.
  • Slice the eggs in half. Carefully remove the yolks and place them in a mesh strainer above a bowl. Push them through the strainer with a spoon. This will break up the yolks and ensure that your filling is perfectly smooth when you mix in your other ingredients.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix egg yolks, 1 tbsp. mayonnaise, 1½ tsp. spicy brown mustard, 1 tsp. sour cream and a sprinkle of salt & pepper. You want the texture of your filling to be like creamy hummus, so if it appears on the dry side, give it a taste, and see if it could use a little more mayo or mustard to make it more creamy.
  • Use a pastry piping bag to fill the egg halves. Garnish with 2-3 pink peppercorns and 1 parsley leaf, each.


1. Make sure NOT to use real holly berries for your deviled eggs. Real holly berries are not edible like pink peppercorns.
2. If you can't find pink peppercorns, use red bell pepper instead.
Simply cut one side off of a red bell pepper, and use a straw to punch little "berries" out of it. Garnish your deviled eggs with 2 to 4 little circles and a parsley leaf for the same effect!
