  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons mustard your favorite – I use plain yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons dill pickle juice or substitute 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh chives for garnish


  • Hard boil the eggs and remove the shells. Cut the boiled eggs in half lengthwise, and pop out the yolks.
  • Put the egg yolks in a bowl with the mayonnaise, mustard, dill pickle juice and black pepper. Mash with a fork, then continue mashing with a wooden spoon until there are no lumps. You can also use a food processor for this step.
  • Put the yolk mixture in a pastry bag fitted with a jumbo round tip. Use the pastry bag to fill the hole in each half egg with the yolk mixture. If not using a pastry bag, fill the egg halves using a teaspoon.
  • Wash and dry the fresh chives.
  • Cut the fresh chives into longer and shorter strips with scissors, and arrange these on top of the deviled eggs to look like the stitching on a football. Press the chive pieces lightly into the deviled egg filling with your fingers.
