Best Ham-Stuffed Eggs Recipe
- 6 hard cooked eggs
- ham,cut into small cubes
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- salt and freshly grpound black pepper
Peel and cut the eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolks. Arrange the egg halves on a cake rack and add a cube of ham, olive or pimiento to each cavity.
Force the egg yolks through a food mill or fine sieve. Add the remaining ingredients and beat well with a wire whisk. Fit a pastry bag with a large star tube and spoon the egg yolk mixture into it. Hold the pastry bag close to an almost parallel with the cavity. Force the mixture through the tube, moving in a zigzag fashion.
Note: The eggs may be cut in half widthwise and stuffed. If they stuffed in this fashion, use a sharp paring knife to trim off a bit of the round bottom portion of each half and discard. This will permit the egg halves to stand upright. To fill the halves, arrange them on a cake rack and hold the pastry tube directly over the cavity. Fill the halves to produce a spiral effect. At the height of the spiral, raise the tube quickly to form a small peak.
