Here's what you will need:

* 12 peeled hard-boiled eggs

* 1 cup flour

* 3 eggs

* 1 cup panko bread crumbs

* Oil for frying

* 4 Tbsp. mayonnaise

* 2 Tbsp. pickle relish

* 2 Tbsp. mustard

* 1 tsp hot sauce

* Salt to taste

* Pepper to taste


* Paprika, or seasoning of choice to top


Heat cooking oil for deep-frying in a medium-size pan over medium heat.

Cut the hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Gently separate the cooked egg white from the yolk and remove to a medium bowl.

Coat the cooked egg white in flour, eggs, and panko bread crumbs. Carefully place eggs into the hot oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes, flipping halfway through. Remove from pan and drain excess oil on a paper towel.

Add mayonnaise, relish, mustard, hot sauce, salt, and pepper to the yolks and mash until smooth. Fill a piping bag or plastic sandwich bag with yolk mixture. Pipe mixture back into the fried egg white, dust with paprika, and serve!
