Notes

a) Hard Boiled Eggs - I know everyone has their own method of boiled eggs, but here's what I do:
  • Place eggs in a pot and cover with cold water (make sure every part of all the eggs is comfortably covered).
  • Turn on high heat and leave until the you reach a rolling boil. Once the eggs start dancing, immediately turn off the heat, pop on a lid and leave on the hob for 10mins.
  • After 10 mins, spoon eggs into a bowl of ice (or very cold) water (this is to stop the cooking process).
  • Peel and dice eggs to desired texture for egg mayo.
b) Quantities - Feel free to increase any of your favourite fillings (i.e the bacon). This is just what I recommend. Everything is equal quantities in 1/3 cups measurements too.
c) Make Ahead - This will store for comfortably for 3 days tightly stored in the fridge. It will dry out every so slightly, so consider stirring through another dollop of mayo just before serving.
d) Calories - one serving (8 in total).
