  1. Boil the eggs: Place the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Once the water reaches a rolling boil, remove the pan from the heat, cover it with a lid, and let the eggs sit in the hot water for about 10-12 minutes.
  2. Cool and peel the eggs: Transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water and let them cool for a few minutes. Once cooled, gently tap each egg on a hard surface to create cracks all around. Peel off the shells, starting at the wide end of the egg. Rinse the peeled eggs to remove any remaining shell fragments.
  3. Slice and remove the yolks: Cut each egg in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolks and place them in a separate bowl. Set the egg white halves aside on a serving platter.
  4. Prepare the filling: Mash the egg yolks with a fork until they are finely crumbled. Add mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, white vinegar, granulated sugar, salt, and black pepper to the yolks. Mix well until all the ingredients are combined, creating a smooth and creamy filling.
  5. Fill the egg whites: Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill each egg white half with the prepared yolk mixture. You can be creative and experiment with different piping tips to achieve decorative patterns.
  6. Garnish and chill: Sprinkle a pinch of paprika over each deviled egg for a pop of color and added flavor. For an extra touch, sprinkle some chopped fresh chives on top as well. Cover the eggs with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  7. Serve and enjoy: Once chilled, arrange the deviled eggs on a serving platter and watch them disappear as your guests savor each heavenly bite. These deviled eggs make for a delightful appetizer or a delightful addition to a brunch or potluck gathering.
