Deviled Eggs


12 hardboiled eggs

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons yellow mustard

¼ teaspoon dry mustard

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

1 large jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced

1 large rib of celery, minced

½ cup minced red onion

Paprika mixed with chili powder to dust the tops

Optional: 4-ounce jar Sunburst Carolina Rainbow Smoked Trout Caviar


  1. Halve the eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks to a mixing bowl. If any whites break, add them to the yolks. Mash the yolks with a fork, then stir in the vinegar, mustards, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. The filling will be dry. I prefer this, but if you don’t, add a little more mayonnaise.
  2. Fold in the minced vegetables. Refill the whites with this mixture.
  3. Dust with the paprika-chili powder blend. For a real crowd pleaser, top each egg with a spoonful of Carolina Sunburst Trout Caviar.
