These are easy to make and are put together with ingredients that are usually on hand: eggs, sandwich spread or mayonnaise, mustard and a little salt and pepper.

Makes 12


  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. sandwich spread or mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1⁄4 cup minced sautéed chicken livers, minced cooked shrimp or finely crumbled crispy bacon (optional)
  • Paprika for garnish
  • Minced fresh cilantro for garnish


    Slice the eggs lengthwise and gently scoop the yolks out into a medium bowl. Mash the yolks well with a fork.

    Add the sandwich spread, mustard, and sugar and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the chicken livers, shrimp, or bacon, if using.

    Using a teaspoon, spoon the yolk mixture back into the egg white halves. Arrange on a platter and sprinkle with paprika and cilantro, if using.
