Hard boiled egg whites stuffed with artichoke heart tapenade and sprinkled with grated cooked egg yolks
Ingredients

Main Course
  • 6 eggs, hard boiled
  • 3/4 cup chopped artichoke hearts (from about 1/2 14-ounce can artichokes hearts in water, drained)
  • 1/2 teaspoon capers, drained
  • 4 pitted green olives, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced chives or green onion greens, packed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon and/or parsley, packed
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, packed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Sprigs of mâche lettuce or baby spinach for garnish

Apricot glaze:
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) apricot preserves
Directions
  •  Cut the eggs in half lengthwise, remove the yolks and place in a bowl.  Place the whites on a serving platter.
  •  In a food processor, chop the artichokes, green olives, capers,  chives, tarragon, and parsley, by pulsing a few times.
  • In a medium bowl, break up one of the egg yolks with a fork. Stir in the mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in the chopped artichoke mixture, the Parmesan cheese, and black pepper.
  • Use a spoon to carefully stuff each egg white half with the artichoke tapenade.
  • Using the fine holes of a box grater, a microplane grater, or (preferably) a rotary cheese grater, gently grate the egg yolks over the entire platter. Garnish with mâche or baby lettuce to serve.
