Deviled Eggs – Recipe

Here’s a little twist on the typical recipe for deviled eggs. The sour cream, dijon mustard, basil, and white wine vinegar give these eggs an elegant flavor profile. Garnished with smoked paprika and chives, these are a pretty Spring hors d’oeuvre.

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives, divided
  • 2 teaspoons smooth Dijon mustard
