Eggs with mayonnaise


Eggs with mayonnaise
Simply known as "œufs-mayo" in French bistros, these hard-boiled eggs are garnished with mayonnaise and are best served with sharply flavoured crudités to balance their creaminess. For this recipe, I have chosen a salad of grated carrot with shallot.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 15 min.
Eggs with mayonnaise : Photo of step #1
Peel and grate 2 carrots.

Put into a bowl with 1 shallot, 1 garlic clove and the finely chopped parsley. Add 4 tablespoons French dressing (vinaigrette) and mix well.

Set aside.

Stage 2 - 10 min.
Eggs with mayonnaise : Photo of step #2
Cut 4 hard-boiled eggs in half lengthways, then slice a little white off the bottom of each half so that the eggs sit firmly.

Stage 3 - 4 min.

Arrange the egg halves on the serving plate with the carrot salad in the spaces between.

Stage 4 - 4 min.
Eggs with mayonnaise : Photo of step #4
Top the eggs with mayonnaise, scatter a few chopped chives over and your "œufs-mayo" are ready.
Remarks
If you don't have time to make the carrot salad, a simple green salad will go well, too.

In the photos, the mayonnaise is piped with a forcing bag. This looks more attractive, but is not essential. You can just use a small spoon to put the mayonnaise on top of the eggs.
Keeping
Should be eaten immediately, once assembled.
