Recipe: cheg

Cheg is really deviled eggs.  It's a childhood favourite and we siblings always called it cheg which is an amalgamation of 'cheese' and 'egg'.
It's dead easy and this is how I make them.

Ingredients (amounts to own need/taste)
hard boiled eggs
grated cheese
salt/pepper/mustard powder
mayo or salad cream
(chopped chives are also nice, but not when it means going out and digging in the snow to cut them!)

Cut the shelled hard boiled eggs in half and scoop out the yolk.
Mash the yolk with the cheese, mayo and seasonings (you can add your own preferences, if you want)
Spoon the mixture back into the egg whites.
Serve with a salad.

Very tasty.


  1. It took me a while to figure out 'cheg' ... but I managed to get it before you told me :-)

    1. :-) I use it without thinking as we've always called it that in the family.
