- Gently place the eggs into a large saucepan. Fill the saucepan, so that the eggs are covered with at least an inch of water. Add 1 tsp of vinegar and a pinch of salt to the water. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. After 2 minutes, cover and remove from heat. Let sit covered for 12-15 minutes. Drain hot water from pan and run cold water over the eggs until the eggs are cool.
- Remove the shell from each egg and cut in half lengthwise. Gently remove the yolk halves and place in a small mixing bowl. Put the egg whites into a Tupperware and store in the fridge.
- Using a fork, mash up the yolk and mix in the Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, onion, celery, tobacco and pepper. Scoop the egg yolk mixture into a plastic bag. Cut one tip of the bag off and pipe the mixture into the egg whites.
