24   Hard-boiled eggs
1/4 cup 59mlMayonnaise
4 tablespoons 60mlButter - softened
2 tablespoons 30mlChopped sweet pickle or piccalilli

Recipe Instructions

Cut the eggs in half lengthwise with a sharp knife dipped in cold water, then puree the yolks through a sieve or food mill into a bowl.

Decorate with parsley or a bit of red pimiento.

A few other stuffing ideas:  After sieving the yolks and blending in mayonnaise, soft butter, salt, and pepper, blend in:

  • Fresh herbs: Such as minced parsley and/or chives or tarragon to taste, or
  • Mushroom duxelles: Minced mushrooms sauteed with herbs and shallots, or
  • Asparagus tips: blanched, warmed in butter and shallots, and finely minced, or
  • Lobster, crab, or shrimp: sauteed in butter and shallots, and finely chopped, or
  • Curried onions: minced onions sauteed in butter with a good pinch of curry powder.
