12 large eggs, hard-cooked and peeled

1 tablespoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt

How to Make It
Cut eggs in half lengthwise, and carefully remove yolks. Mash yolks; stir in mayonnaise and next 4 ingredients. Spoon or pipe egg yolk mixture into egg halves. Cover and chill at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Garnish, if desired.
The fresher the eggs, the more difficult they can be to peel. For ease of peeling, buy and refrigerate your eggs 7 to 10 days before using.
