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.

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.
