Egg mayonnaise

Egg mayonnaise
  • Serves: 6
  • Prep: 10mins
  • Cook: 7mins

Ingredients

  • 8 large British Lion Eggs
  • 4 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives (optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 baby gem lettuce leaves
  • A dusting of paprika to garnish
  • Crusty bread to serve, if wanted

Method

  1. Place the eggs in a medium pan of cold water. Place on the hob and slowly bring to the boil. When boiling simmer for 7 minutes.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
