Why we love it
Oeufs mimosa have been a staple of French cuisine for generations. Their popularity can be traced back to centuries, where boiled eggs were often served with a bit of spice in them to add a lot of flavor.
Known as “deviled eggs” in English, eggs mimosa is a simple dish made with hard-boiled eggs stuffed with a creamy, tangy filling.
In France they are typically served as an appetizer or starter, but you can also serve it alongside a simple salad and crusty bread for a light and satisfying meal. And if you are looking for a snack, you can prepare these eggs mimosa and keep them in a container for a quick and easy snack on the go.
What to serve with it?
Can you prepare it in advance?
Eggs mimosa keeps quite well in the fridge, and can be served warm or cold. I would recommend keeping the mayonnaise mixture separately from the eggs however.
Let it cool, and then place in an airtight glass container in the fridge, and it should last a few days. When ready to serve, just assemble the eggs and mixture and you can choose to heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds if you wish.

- Boil the eggs for 10 minutes, until they are hard boiled. Place the eggs in a pot with an inch of cold water. Bring the water to a boil, and let the eggs cook for 10 minutes. After ten minutes, carefully place the eggs in cold water to stop the cooking process.
