Recipe Notes

  • cheese
  • chives

*The best way to hard-boil eggs is to let them come to room temperature (so they won’t crack), then place them in a small saucepan, cover with cold water, and bring to a gentle simmer over a medium heat.  Cook for 5 minutes if you like your eggs still a little soft in the centre or for 8 minutes if you prefer them firmer.  Use a spoon to gently remove them from the boiling water and immediately place them into iced water, which will prevent a grey ring forming around the yolk.  Remove and peel when cooled.
