  • 10 eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • salt
  • 1 jarred roasted red pepper, rinsed and dried
  • 5 black olives, cut into 1/8 inch rings.


  1. 1

    Place eggs in a large pot and cover with cold water. Cover pot with a lid and bring water to a boil. As soon as water has boiled, turn off heat. Let eggs sit, covered, for 10 minutes.

  2. 2

    Drain eggs and let cool slightly. Peel eggs and cut in half.

  3. 3

    Carefully scoop yolk from eggs and place in a medium bowl. Add mayonnaise, mustard, and paprika to bowl. Stir to combine. Season with salt to taste.

  4. 4

    Divide filling among egg halves. Top each egg half with an olive ring- this will serve as the pupil.

  5. 5

    Slice the red pepper as thinly as possible. Arrange a few red pepper strips around the olive to resemble veins. Repeat with remaining eggs.
