Stuffed Hard-Boiled Eggs
Here the principle is always the same: Hard-boil the eggs, then cut them in half, length ways.
Take out the yolks and mix them with whatever stuffing or sauce you like, then fill the whites with the mixture.
There should be about equal quantities of stuffing and yolks.
What is left of the stuffing, mixed with a little sauce, should be spread round the stuffed eggs in the dish in which they are to be served.
Pour the rest of the sauce over them.
Here are a few suggestions for stuffing: the sauce mentioned at the end of each recipe is the one you should pour over the dish.
