4 large Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
3 tbsp mayonnaise
2 radishes, finely chopped
ΒΌ x 25g pack chives, finely chopped
essential Waitrose Salad Cress, chives or Good4U Super Sprouts, to serve
Buttered white bread, to serve


1. Put the eggs into a saucepan large enough to accommodate them comfortably in a single layer. Cover with cold water. Place over a high heat, bring to the boil then simmer for exactly 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool under cold water.

2. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel away just enough shell at the pointed end to remove the contents with a teaspoon. Draw a funny face on each shell.

3. Place the egg into a bowl with the mayonnaise, radishes and chopped chives. Season and mash well with a fork.

4. Spoon the egg mixture back into the shells. Place into egg cups and then add cress, chives, or sprouts as hair. Serve with buttered bread and the extra egg mixture on the side.
