Moulded eggs for a bento picnic
- Prep: 10mins
- Cook: 8mins
- Egg moulds
- British Lion eggs
- First you need to hard boil your eggs. Place the eggs in a saucepan of cold water and bring to the boil, then boil for 8 minutes. Then you need to remove the shell as quickly as you can, do this under the cold tap so you don’t burn your fingers!
- When you’ve removed all the shell place your egg into your egg mould and slowly close the lid and snap it shut. A little bit of the egg might squeeze out from the mould but don’t worry – this can be trimmed later.
- Leave the egg moulds in a bowl of cold water for at least 10 minutes before removing from their moulds. You should have beautifully shaped eggs.
A great alternative to the normal picnic staples of egg sandwiches or quiche.
