To make classic deviled eggs, use eggs, mayonnaise, white vinegar, yellow mustard, salt, black pepper and paprika. The classic recipe requires about 20 minutes of preparation time and 15 minutes of cooking time, according to Food Network.
Place six eggs in the bottom of a saucepan and cover with water. Leave approximately 1 1/2 inches of water above the eggs. Boil the eggs on high heat, and when the water begins to boil, cover the saucepan with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Continue to cook the eggs for one minute, then remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the covered pan to sit for 14 minutes. Move the pan to the sink and continuously run cold water into the pan for one minute. Peel the eggs and cut lengthwise. Remove the yolks from the egg and place them into a bowl while sitting the whites on a plate for later use.
Using a fork to smash the yolks, then add one-fourth cup of mayonnaise, one teaspoon of white vinegar, one teaspoon of yellow mustard, one-eighth teaspoon of salt and a dash of black pepper. Mix the contents of the bowl together, and use a spoon to scoop the yolk mixture and place it back into the cooked egg whites. Sprinkle paprika on top for added taste and garnish.
