Traditional Southern Deviled Eggs

6 hard boiled eggs
1- 2 teaspoons mustard to taste
3 Tablespoons chopped dill or sweet pickle
1 teaspoon pickle juice
1/4 cup mayonnaise (or more if needed)
salt and pepper to taste
dash of paprika for garnish

Remove the yolks, mash, and mix with the other ingredients.  Use only as much mayonnaise to make a moist and creamy yolk mixture.  Stuff the yolk and garnish with a sprinkle of paprika.  Chill and serve cold.  The pickles can also be replaced with finely chopped green olives omitting the pickle juice.
