    At the earliest I would do it a day before, but I don't know what the experts would suggest.

    same here. I would definetely make them on Thursday but maybe Wednesday they wouldn't be fresh enough tasting by Friday? Maybe they'd be fine too, I don't know for sure.

    Mix up your egg yolk mixture a day ahead and refrigerate it separate from the whites. Stuff whites a few hours ahead of time. The egg whites collect moisture overnight in the fridge. I turn them upside down on papertowels before stuffing.

    I agree -- I would not make them that far ahead. We have had them left over from a picnic, and they were OK, but they certainly didn't taste the same as when they were fresh.

    The idea of mixing your yolks a day ahead might solve the problem. But how many are you making? Unless it is more than a couple of dozen, would it really take too much time to do them the same day?

    Cook the eggs a couple of days ahead if you want, but try not to go further than that too far ahead would be my advice.

    Rockandroll when I have had a problem with time before, I have made the filling the day before and put it in a ziplock bag seperate from the whites.
    When ready to fill make sure the whites are nice and dry; then squeeze the bag a few times to make sure the ingredients are well blended then snip off a corner of the bag and squeeze the yolk mixture into the whites. Fast,easy and no mess.
