Next bring a pot of water to a rolling boil – and add in 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to make it easier to peel the eggs afterwards.

Gently lay your eggs into the pot slowly, to avoid cracking upon placement.

Boil your eggs for 9 minutes and 15 seconds – and afterwards dunk in an ice bath for at least 3 minutes.

Then peel off the shell and slice your eggs in half lengthwise, separating the hard boiled yolks into a mixing bowl.

Spoon the creamy filling into the plastic Ziplock bag, cut off the tip – and pipe the filling into the egg whites, using a mounding or swirling technique.
