Herbal Gatherings


12 eggs (over a week old - easier to peel)

5 strips of bacon

0.5 cup of mayonnaise

2 tablespoon of mustard                              

2 tablespoon of horseradish

4 tablespoon of finely grind cheddar cheese

1 pepper to taste

1 paprika to decorate

1 chives to decorate


Place eggs in a saucepan, cover with cold water about 1 inch above eggs. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, and cool by rinsing eggs under cold running water.

Meanwhile, place bacon in a skillet and cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Alternatively, wrap bacon in paper towels and cook in the microwave for about 1 minute. Crumble and set aside in a bowl.

Peel the hard-cooked eggs, and cut in half lengthwise. Remove yolks to the bacon bowl. Mash egg yolks with mayonnaise, crumbled bacon and cheese. Stir in mustard and horseradish. Fill egg white halves with the yolk mixture, sprinkle paprika and chives and refrigerate until serving.
