Stuffed eggs have always been my granny’s forte. When we had some guests coming for lunch, she would prepared stuffed eggs as (one of) the appetizers. We had our own chickens and our own vegetable garden back then, so more than farm to table, these eggs where from backyard straight into the kitchen.

Nowadays I don’t wonder anymore why granny used to like to make this kind of appetizer so often. Besides the fact that she had organic eggs right there at home, stuffed eggs are easy to make, full of flavor and very filling.
