Cress Eggs
Recipe Type: Appetizer, Hors d'Oeuvre
Prep Time: 
Total Time: 
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs
  • 5 tablespoons finely chopped cress
  • ¾ teaspoon curry
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Tabasco
  • Salt
  • Pimiento
  1. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise, remove the yolks and force through a sieve.
  2. Mix well with the cress and seasonings and fill the whites.
  3. Arrange over the top of each a trellislike garnish of finely cut strips of pimiento.
  4. Place a tip of cress at one end.
I used mizuna in place of cress, because that's what my market had. I think arugula or any other peppery, lemony green would be lovely.
