Deviled eggs are considered a Southern staple but this recipe gives them a touch of elegance by adding lobster. The combo makes for the perfect appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 12 hard-cooked extra-large eggs, peeled
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped cooked lobster
  • Smoked paprika
  • Chopped fresh chives

How to Make It

  1. Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Place yolks in a medium bowl; place whites on a serving platter. Mash yolks with a fork until crumbly. Add mayonnaise and next 5 ingredients; beat at medium speed with a mixer until smooth. Gently stir in lobster.

  2. Spoon filling into whites. Sprinkle tops with smoked paprika and fresh chives. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
