Servings 4 servings


  • 4 duck eggs hard-boiled
  • 1 pickle dill
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice fresh, or substitute with pickle juice
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon red bell pepper diced fine
  • Paprika to garnish


  • Starting by carefully slicing your hard-boiled eggs in half, followed by spooning out the yolks into a separate bowl, taking care not to break the whites; set the whites aside for later use.
  • Next finely chop the pickle, reserving a bit for garnishing before throwing the rest in a mixing bowl. In your mixing bowl, add the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice (or pickle juice) and egg yolks, mixing well with a fork.
  • Season with salt and pepper to desired taste before using a small spoon to transfer the egg yolk mixture back into the egg white halves. Garnish with your pickle garnish, red bell pepper bits, and a sprinkle of paprika before storing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days if not serving immediately.


Again, consider this a starting point. Personally, I prefer lime juice to pickle juice, but your tastes may vary. Consider other seasonings, too; for instance, I love adding a dash of dill, which also gives the yolk mix a little bit of a green tint. Work with what you like.
