Recipe: cheg

I love cheg.  It's a great way to use up eggs and it's so tasty.  Not terribly unhealthy either and quite frugal.

Not the best photo in the world, I know, and scruffily arranged too!  Ooops

Ingredients to make enough for one
2 hard boiled eggs
20g strong cheddar cheese, finely grated
about 10 to 15 g mayo
pinch of salt
Other seasonings as wanted - I like sweet paprika, shopped chives (from the garden) or grain/dijon mustard

Carefully cut the cold hard boiled eggs in half and scoop out the yolk into a small bowl.  Mash roughly with a fork.
Add most of the grated cheese and a pinch of salt (not much because of the cheese) and stir in.
Add the mayo (light mayo is fine for this or, sometimes, I like to use salad cream for a different flavour)
Mix together very well, then spoon back into the egg white halves and arrange on your plate.
Sprinkle over the rest of the grated cheese, chives or another garnish and maybe grate over some black pepper.

Serve with a simple mixed salad and perhaps some coleslaw.
