Deviled Egg Boats Recipe

Deviled Egg Boats Recipe

These cleverly engineered eggs with a mustardy zip and colorful sails are sure to become an instant favorite with your crew.


  • 12 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar (white or cider)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 red, orange, yellow, or green bell peppers
  • Paprika


Peel the eggs, then slice each one in half to make boats. Place the yolks in a medium-sized bowl and mash them with a fork. Add the mustard and the vinegar, then add the mayonnaise, stirring until the consistency is smooth but not soupy.

Next, make the sails. To do this, cut each pepper into 1-inch-wide strips, then cut the strips into 1-inch squares and slice each square in half diagonally.

Fill the egg-white halves with the yolk mixture. Stick the sail upright into the filling and sprinkle with paprika. Makes two dozen.
