Capers add punchy flavour to this classic party appetizer!

8 large eggs

½ cup mayonnaise

tsp ground dry mustard

1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh chives

tsp capers, drained and chopped

salt and pepper

capers and chives, for garnish

1. Place eggs in tepid water and bring up to a simmer. Cook for 4 minutes, shut off heat and let eggs sit in water until water cools to room temperature.

2. Peel eggs and cut in half. Scoop out cooked yolks and blend with mayonnaise, mustard, chives and chopped capers and season to taste. Place egg filling in a piping bag and pipe back into egg whites. Garnish with a caper and a sprig of chive. Wrap and chill until ready to serve.

3. Tip: To make the yolks fine and easy-to blend, push them through a strainer, then blend with other ingredients.
