Ingredients

  • 12 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • paprika for garnish
  • chives for garnish

Instructions

  • Hard boil the eggs and immediately plunge them into ice water to cool for 5 minutes. Remove the eggs from the ice bath, towel dry and peel.
  • Slice the peeled, hard boiled eggs in half. Over the bowl of your food processor (fitted with the blade attachment), gently squeeze the egg whites so the yolks pop out and falls into the bowl. Place the egg white portion onto a large plate.
  • Next, add in the goat cheese, mayonnaise, Dijon, lemon juice, salt and pepper to the egg yolks in the food processor.
  • Pulse, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl until the mixture is smooth.
  • Scrape out the egg yolk filling into a medium bowl and add in the sliced green onions, chopped parsley and tarragon. Use a spatula and mix to combine.
  • Fill each of the egg whites (with an offset spatula, spoon or pipe it in with a pastry bag) with the goat cheese/egg mixture. Sprinkle the deviled eggs with paprika and top the yolk mixture with a few inch-long snipped chives for garnish.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
