This is a fun way to stuff eggs. And a fun way to eat eggs.


I trimmed off just enough of the bottoms of each hardboiled egg to make them stand up

Then cut it in half or cut it about 1/3,  2/3 whichever way you’re looking at it.

In a bowl I mashed the egg yolks with the biggest fork I could find. Ok, fine, I just wanted to use that fork even though it was marginally unfunctional. Now spell check has decided “unfunctional” is not a word. Too bad, it can underline it in red all it wants. I’m still using it. Unfunctional unfunctional unfunctional!

Anyway, Next I added some parmesan and a spoon of mayonnaise.

I put in a teeny forkful of mustard but after tasting it, think skip the mustard or substitute something else for the mayonnaise would be a good idea, it was too vinegary.

Then I loaded up the bottoms of the eggs with the yolk filling and placed the other half on top.

Using two capers for eyes and a bit of carrot I made the face. I cut the feet out of carrot slices also.
