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.
