Egg Canapes with Gorgonzola
Health Highlights


6 medium egg Egg
100 ml Creme fraiche
50 gm Blue cheese (gorgonzola)
1 tbsp Coarse ground mustard
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/2 cup Cilantro (coriander)


Hard boil the eggs.

Clean the eggs and cut them in half, along their length. Remove the yolks with a teaspoon.

In a small mixing bowl, mix the yolks with cayenne pepper, the Gorgonzola, the créme fraîche, mustard, and finely chopped cilantro leaves. Blend until you obtain a paste that it not very smooth and still shows bits of the cheese.

Fill the egg halves with the mix, using a teaspoon, re-building their original whole egg shape. Chill for at least a couple of hours.

Serve on a platter, on lettuce leaves. A serving includes 3 eggs. Decorate with fresh cilantro and serve with extra small cubes of Gorgonzola.
