Here is a very simple starter to make that’s delicious. Once more, it is a classic of french cooking. This starter is also very fast to do (10 minutes) and to cook (10 minutes). Why that name ? Because when you chop the egg yolks, it looks like a mimosa flower.
To make the eggs mimosa to serve 4 : 4 eggs, 4 tablespoons mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of chopped basil.
Boil the eggs for 10 minutes. Cool and peel. Halve lengthwise. Remove the egg yolk without tearing the egg white.
Chop the egg yolks and mix it with mayonnaise and chopped basil.
Put the egg whites on a plate and fill it with the egg yolk mixture. You can arrange the plate with some salad and tomatoes. It’s ready to serve.
You’ve got a lot of variants of that starter : for example, you can replace the basil with parsley, or pepper to give a red color, or by tuna, or chopped olives. And for a specific day, why not put some truffles in the egg yolks ?!
Bon appétit !
