  • 6 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved lengthwise

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons picked crabmeat

  • Dash of hot sauce (optional, preferably vinegar-based like Crystal or Frank's)

  • teaspoon salt

  • Ground pepper to taste


  1. Remove egg yolks with a spoon and place them in a small bowl. Place the egg whites on a plate or, better yet, on a deviled egg plate. Add mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, crabmeat and hot sauce, if using, to the bowl with the egg yolks. Season with salt and pepper; mix thoroughly with a fork until smooth. Place the mixture in a pastry bag or a plastic baggie with one corner cut off. Pipe the mixture into the egg whites. Garnish with a dusting of paprika, if desired, and serve.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
