Eggs and Cheese
I've made these eggs many a time for parties and they go down a
treat. You can also make them for picnics.
* * *
6 hard boiled eggs, cooled and shelled
3 tbsp grated Manchego or cheddar cheese
1-2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp snipped fresh chives or 1/2 tsp dried
1 fresh red chilli. deseeded and finely chopped
lettuce leaves to serve
Cut the eggs in half lengthways, and, using a teaspoon, carefully scoop
out the yolks into a nylon sieve,reserving the egg white halves. Rub the yolks through the the sieve
into a bowl and add the grated cheese, mayonnaise, chives, salt and pepper to taste.
Spoon the filling into the egg white halves. Arrange a bed of lettuce on
a serving plate and top with the eggs. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
If I can't buy fresh chilli, I use frozen chilli. As you can see from my
photo above, I have put a dab of chilli on each egg with a pinch of grated cheese for decoration.
