How to Cook Egg Mayo in the Shell

  1. Place the eggs in a pan and cover completely with cold water. Heat over a high heat until boiling then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Cool in cold water then, with a sharp knife, slice off the top of the egg, being careful not to break the remaining shell. Scoop out the egg into a bowl, mash with a fork season to taste and mix with the mayonnaise. Slice or chop the spring onion into the finest slices or smallest pieces possible. For each egg, add ½ teaspoon of chopped onion to the bowl and mix well.
  3. Fill the empty shells with the egg mixture and top with ½ teaspoon of lumpfish roe and a tiny sprig of dill. Toast the bread slices then use an upturned glass or cup to cut them into round shapes. Using a pastry cutter, make a smaller hole in the centre for the egg to sit in.


Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
Don't have a pastry cutter for that small hole in the toast? Hey, what do you think kitchen scissors are for???

I love the idea of serving egg mayo in the shell, and the addition of some fish eggs on top gives it a nice twist too. It looked great when I included it in a salad when we had guests.
