I thought today was the perfect day to share these tuna-stuffed eggs, which for me are a staple for lunches and pic-nics! They are such a classic dish in Italy, everyone knows how to make them or has their own version of it.

No fuss to prepare, perfect served on a bed of salad. If you are having friends around for a dinner, they also make splendid appetisers or as a part of a buffet/picky dinner. I usually love them on a Saturday lunch with some fresh bread, smoked salmon, and a green salad and tomatoes.

  • 3 hard-boiled eggs (I do 6 minutes)
  • 3oz (85g) tuna
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Some chopped parsley
  • Some green olives
  • Green salad

Slice the eggs in half lengthwise and with a teaspoon delicately remove the yolk and put it in a small bowl.
Drain the tuna and add it to the bowl with the yolks, together with some mayonnaise, parsley and seasoning.
Fill the egg white “boats” with the tuna filling and top with half a green olive.Lay on a bed of salad and serve!
  • If you have some leftover filling it’s really nice the next day as a sandwich filler with some sweet corn!
