  • soft butter to spread


Place the eggs in a medium pan of cold water. Place on the hob and slowly bring to the boil. When boiling begins simmer for 5 minutes.
Whilst the eggs cook, place the bread on a board and spread butter on one side of each slice.
Drain the eggs, rinse in cold water and tap the shells all over, leave to cool. when cold, peel away the shells.
Reserve two eggs. Roughly chop the rest and place in a bowl. Add the mayonnaise, chives and seasoning and gently mix.
