Ingredients

Let eggs sit out to room temperature, or run gently under hot water to warm. Place in a single layer in a sauté or frying pan, covered by about 1 to 1 ½ inches with water. Bring to a rapid boil over high heat. Immediately remove from heat, cover, and let sit 17 minutes, then drain and submerge in ice water 10 minutes or until completely cooled before peeling. Slice eggs, discarding 4 of the egg yolks, then chop to small pieces. In separate bowl, combine sour cream, mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper, then stir in chopped eggs, celery, green onions, and red pepper. Cover and refrigerate. Serve in sandwiches or as a cold side to barbequed chicken, grilled meat, or hamburgers.

Thanks for great ideas.
