Deviled eggs for Easter

Eggs are an ancient symbol for new life so it is only appropriate to serve deviled eggs, a.k.a. eggs mimosa, at Easter. Just for fun look up "deviled eggs" and "Easter eggs" on Wikipedia.

My friend Heather gave me a wonderful recipe which includes cajun spices in the mashed yokes. Here is the recipe for these cajun eggs also called zydeco ya-yas:

6 hard boiled eggs peeled, halved and the yokes put in a bowl

Add to the yokes:
1/4 c. mayonaisse
1 T plus 2t Dijon mustard
1 1/2t cajun seasoning (either buy at a store or make by combining 1T plus 1 1/2t paprika, 1T garlic powder, 1 1/2t onion powder, 1 1/2t cayenne pepper)
1/4t Tabasco sauce
salt and black pepper to taste

Mash until combined and spoon into the whites. Sprinkle w/ paprika and snipped chives.
