You can also mix the yolk with many other ingredients, for hard-boiled eggs that will amaze all diners. For example, why not prepare stuffed eggs with salmon? Just mix the egg yolk with the spreadable cheese and the shredded smoked salmon. Or mix the egg yolk with the green sauce or a vegetable couscous to prepare perfect vegetarian stuffed eggs.


Everyone knows: stuffed eggs should be enjoyed as soon as they are made (or at the latest after 1 or 2 hours in the fridge). If you really can’t finish them all, you can keep them, for a maximum of 1 day , in the refrigerator covered with cling film. We do not recommend freezing.
