Buttery Dijon Deviled Eggs

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Plan ahead these need to chill for 3 hours before serving, these are really good! Make certain that eggs are completely cooled before slicing in half and butter is very soft but not melted, you can adjust all ingredients to taste

I"ve made these a few times now Kit but kept forgetting to review:-(. I love the addition of cayenne pepper as it added just the right amount of punch. Also, the use of butter is a new one and instead of using plain yellow mustard the dijon was a nice welcome. All the ingredients together work so well. I did omit the onions per families request. Thanks for a great go-to recipe that is used often.~
