Egg mouse

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 \N Hard Boiled Eggs
2 \N Spring onions - or-
1 tablespoon Chopped Fresh Chives
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 \N Tin Concentrated Consomme
6 tablespoons Mayonnaise (not SALAD CREAM)
\N \N Salt and Pepper

Melt the consomme gently in a saucepan - do not bring it to the boil ~ then remove from the heat and add the lemon juice. As soon as it is cool, chill it in the fridge. Trim the spring onions or chop the chives and put them into a food processor or a liquidiser. Shell the eggs, cut them in half and add them to the food processor. Whiz for a few seconds, scrape down the sides, add the consomme mixture, mayonnaise and seasoning and process for a few more seconds until thoroughly blended. Do not over process - this is much nicer with a light texture. Pour it all into a souffle dish and allow to set in the fridge for at least two hours preferably four, to make sure the whole lot goes firm. It can even be left overnight in the fridge covered in cling film. This is nicest spooned out from the dish and eaten with granary bread or toast.
