Eggs stuffed with tuna

Stuffed boiled egg

A good appetizer for a thousand occasions and, why not, as a finger food for a party, a standing lunch or a trip!
And of course the equipment required is really essential: the picture of the dish I made in the kitchenette of the apartment where I was on vacation, at the sea.

But is that enough a stove and a camping pot or trekking ...

Cook in boiling water NB the eggs for 10 '(I use an egg cook at home - here the various methods). Meanwhile, drain the oil from tuna and place in a bowl, desalinate and disliscare anchovy, just rinse the capers, chop the parsley and squeeze or chop up the garlic.

As soon as the eggs are cooked, immerse them in cold water and immediately pat them all around to crack the shell: they will be more easily released.

As soon as they are cold, peel them, cut them in half, remove the egg yolks and place them in the tuna bowl. Grind anchovy and capers together (and possibly garlic if you have not squeezed it before).

Add them to the egg yolks with the other ingredients and mix vigorously in order to obtain a coarse cream. Season with salt and pepper and form, with wet hands, eight balls with which to stuff then the white media.

With the hands give an almost regular shape to the stuffing and then keep the eggs cool until use (see note!).

  • print pdf Recipe, text only: to print or download.
  • Note: These eggs should be consumed in days. You can possibly prepare them the night before to propose them for lunch the following day; but not beyond!
  • NB: remember to pierce the bottom with a pin so they do not burst
  • Mayonnaise helps to bind these eggs. If it is not a homemade mayonnaise, remember that the industrial contains mustard and that there are several people with a strong allergy to this component
  • This is certainly a dish that lends itself to a thousand variations: the photographic sequence that follows is of different time ago; some thin slices of anchovy were used to decorate the eggs.
