This recipe offers a slightly different twist with enhanced flavour, and I have also provided additional ideas to customize and change up the taste according to your preferences.

Essential Ingredients

  • Easter eggs ( boiled eggs ) – In most cases, when there’s even a slight crack on the egg, the colour will penetrate inside, giving the egg a colourful and fun appearance.
  • light mayo – For those mindful of their calorie intake, you can swap mayonnaise for Greek yogurt or mix half mayonnaise and half yogurt.
  • mustard – use Dijon or English mustard
  • shallots or spring onion – finely chopped. Include the white part of the spring onion for added flavour.
  • herbs – Enhance the flavour with your choice of herbs, with parsley and/or chives being the recommended options.

Optional ingredients: Experiment with other additional ingredients to create different versions of egg mayo. Add smoked paprika or chilli for reddish hues and a piquant or spicy kick. Try curry powder for an exotic taste, or horseradish for a deliciously fiery heat.

For a richer and more substantial spread, consider adding chopped cooked ham or a medley of vegetables. These additions not only enhance the texture but also provide additional layers of flavour, making your egg mayo even more satisfying and versatile.

How to make an Easter egg-mayo spread?

To create this delicious Egg Mayo using leftover Easter eggs, begin by finely chopping the eggs with an egg slicer or a knife. When using an egg slicer, turn the egg 90 degrees after the initial slice to create a diced egg.

In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped eggs with all the ingredients. Optionally, enhance the flavour with additional ingredients such as chopped herbs, ketchup, horseradish or sweet/smoked paprika.

Once thoroughly mixed, refrigerate the mixture briefly to chill. This Egg Mayo is now ready to be enjoyed as a spread. No additional cooking is required, making it a convenient and delicious way to repurpose Easter eggs leftovers.
