Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:

1 dozen eggs
1/8 bunch parsley, finely chopped
1/8 yellow onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
mayonnaise, to taste and for texture
whole-grain Dijon mustard, to taste

Preparation:

1. Boil eggs, stirring occasionally (so the yolk will be center) until hard-cooked. The recipe then says: Cool in ice water, and then cut eggs in half crosswise, slicing a bit off bottom, so they will stand upright. Remove yolks.

2. Add remaining ingredients to yolks and mix for filling. To add texture to filling, chop up one egg white very finely, and add to mixture.

3. Spoon mixture back into egg whites and garnish with a parsley leaf.
