Tip: To make ahead of time (up to six hours ahead), prepare everything and put plastic cover over filled eggs. Refrigerate and garnish when ready to eat.
First you need to hard boil the eggs. Boil water in a large saucepan and add eggs gently. Bring to a simmer and cook eggs for 10 minutes. Remove eggs with slotted spoon and cool with cold water. Remove egg shells and allow to cool further. Slice eggs in half (lengthwise), then gently remove egg yolks and gather in bowl. Place egg white on a separate surface. In the bowl with the yolks, add mayonnaise and mustard. Use fork to mash ingredients together until well combined and smooth. Add in Virginia ham and Worcestershire sauce and stir until well combined. Lastly, take a large scoop full of the yolk mixture and put it into the hollowed out egg whites. Sprinkle eggs with paprika, black olives and chopped Virginia ham.
