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.

Egg and cheese

Serves: 6


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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
