  1. Place the eggs in a small pot and cover with cold water. Place a lid on the pot, and heat on high until boiling.
  2. Boil for 10 minutes, covered.
  3. Drain the hot water off and place under cold running water.
  4. Crack the eggs all over and peel off the shells. Give them a quick rinse under cold water to make sure there aren't any bits of egg shell sticking.
  5. Halve the eggs, lengthways, and place the yolks in a bowl. Mash the yolks with the back of a fork.
  6. Stir in the mayo, mustard, sugar, salt, and pepper.
  7. Spoon the mixture into the egg halves and sprinkle with paprika.
