Add 1/4 cups mayonnaise(4 tablespoons), 1 teaspoon mustard, 1 teaspoon vinegar, salt and pepper as needed. Mix well. If you are using a piping bag or ziploc, mash well and make sure there aren’t any lumps. Taste test and adjust the seasoning to suit your taste.

Scoop the filling back into the egg white shells. You can use a spoon for this. You can also put the filling into a ziplock and then snip off the end and fill in the whites. Or go fancy with a piping bag fitted with a nozzle. Sprinkle with a dash of paprika.
