Stuffed Eggs with Lemon & Capers

Although I serve these as upright eggs, this can be tricky depending upon the position of the egg yolk once the egg has been hard boiled.  You may be better off slicing the egg in half and serve as you would a deviled egg.   These can be prepared in advance and make a great appetizer, picnic snack, addition to your lunch box or are delicious with a salad.  I sometimes serve these as part of a Tapas meal too.

The filling is tangy yet creamy.  I love the flavour combination of lemon and capers!  Any left over filling could be used as a sandwich filling.  Or ate straight out of the bowl whilst muttering “best not waste any food”.   Try to ignore the judgemental stares of your pets as you do this.  Well, my cats were judgemental, my dogs were in full puppy-eyed begging mode.  They got nothing.
