Ingredients (Servings: 12):

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 (4.5 ounce) can tuna, drained and flaked
  • 2 teaspoons sweet pickle relish, drained
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon white sugar (optional)
  • ⅛ teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 ½ tablespoons mayonnaise, or as needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch paprika, or as desired


  1. Cook the Eggs: Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil, then remove the pan from heat. Let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Afterward, remove the eggs from the hot water, cool them under cold running water, and peel them.
  2. Prepare the Filling: Cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place them in a small bowl. Use a fork to mash the egg yolks. Add the tuna, sweet pickle relish, mustard, sugar (if using), and onion powder to the mashed yolks. Mix well.
  3. Mix in Mayonnaise: Gradually stir in the mayonnaise until the mixture is creamy yet firm. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Stuff the Eggs: Arrange the egg white halves cut-side-up on a serving platter. Spoon or pipe the tuna mixture into the egg white halves.
  5. Garnish: Sprinkle a pinch of paprika over each stuffed egg half for a touch of color and flavor.
  6. Optional Adjustments: If desired, slice a small sliver off the bottom of each egg white half to help them sit flat on the platter. Feel free to explore with optional add-ins or substitutions like dill pickle relish, chopped onion, dill, curry, Dijon mustard, garlic, chopped tomato, or chopped pimento to tailor the taste to your preference.
