These are my famous stuffed eggs. I often make them for Leilah's parties. I was told they disappear quite fast. If the Tartar Sauce is made with homemade mayonnaise it will taste the absolute best. But it will also be rich. Sometimes when I make several dozen of these eggs, I cheat and use half commercial and half homemade mayo. That way you get the homemade mayo flavor, but you also cut the fat. I don't use light mayo though. It brings in a foreign flavor. Even worse is using Miracle Whip. If you like Miracle Whip use it from the jar and forget making a Tartar Sauce. You can't make good Tartar Sauce from Miracle Whip. 

Always be careful with mayonnaise based dishes. Don't let them sit on the table for too long. Especially if using homemade mayonnaise. It contains raw egg yolks, so care should be taken to reduce the chance of bacterial growth.    

5 eggs
1 tsp minced parsley
1/2 tsp minced onion*
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup fine breadcrumbs
1 batch of Hungarian Tartar Sauce [scroll down for recipe]

• Bring the eggs to boil.
• Cover, and remove from heat.
• Let stand for 15 minutes. Do not lift lid.
• After 15 minutes peel and halve the eggs.
• With a small spoon scoop out the yolks and set the whites aside.
• Place the yolks in a bowl.
• Add parsley, onion, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, and Tartar Sauce.
• Combine well.
• Adjust consistency; add more bread crumbs or Tartar Sauce. The yolk filling should be on the firmer side.
• Stuff the whites with the yolk filling.
• Wrap and place stuffed eggs in the fridge immediately.
• Allow the flavors to combine for minimum 6 hours.
• Sprinkle with paprika just before serving.


1/8 cup full fat mayonnaise 
1/8 cup sour cream 
1 Tsp sugar 
1 Tsp prepared mustard 
little white wine or milk 

• In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar and the mustard. 
• Add a little bit of white wine or milk for sauce consistency. The amount will depend on the type of mayonnaise and sour cream used. Never use Miracle Whip. 

* Mincing is very fine dicing. But never grate onions for stuffed eggs, because the onion juices, even in tiny amount, can overpower the delicate flavoring of eggs.
