Since it's Christmas (and good help is hard to find!), this movie favorite is from my sister : )
"While Funny Farm isn't specifically a Christmas themed movie, it does have a large part of the plot taking place during the holiday.  This movie is a favorite throughout the year.  I love Yellow Dog!!"

Picture of Picnic Deviled Eggs Recipe

And here's is the one thing my family lets my sister make for holiday gatherings.

Deviled Eggs

hardboiled, peeled eggs
yellow mustard
optional: salt and pepper, sour cream

Cut eggs in half length-wise and remove yolks placing them in a bowl.
Break up the yolks with a fork (or fork and knife) until you have a fairly fine granular consistency.
Start your yolk mixture with a large spoonful of mayo. Start with less rather than more! For about 8 yolks
I start with about 1/4 cup mayo. Mix until smooth and creamy, adding more mayo or sour cream as needed.
Add 1/2 tsp of yellow mustard, or more to taste. This gives the eggs some tang and brightens up the yellow color lost with the mayo.
You should have a smooth and slightly stiff mix. Avoid the over soft or runny mix!

Arrange the whites on a plate. Add the yolk mixture with a spoon or a piping bag. Yes, they look much nicer if you use the piping bag (or ziplock bag with the corner snipped off), but if you are careful a spoon works fine.
Sprinkle the tops with a pinch of paprika and serve.
