Deviled Eggs

Source: Mary Cobb & Stacey Mortimer
12 eggs
1/2 cup of mayo
2 T finely chopped onion
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder

For perfect eggs with no green center (caused by over cooking) place 12 eggs in a large pan and cover with 3" water (any amount of eggs, same directions.) Do not use hot water. Place on burner over medium/high heat and immediately start timing for exactly 20 minutes. When eggs begin to boil hard, turn heat to medium. Cracking eggs while still hot makes the shells easily slip off. Slice in half and scrape out yolks into a mixing bowl. Blend remaining ingredients well and fill eggs halves. Sprinkle with additional paprika. Chill.
