Egg Spread from a Five Star Hotel...shhhhh...

This is scrumptious on bagels, toast, or crackers. My Mums secret recipe nicked from a five star hotel where she worked in the 70's. Shhhh...
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons softened butter
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • ½ tsp your favourite sauce Tomato, Worcestshire, Barbecue are all good
  • 90g softened cream cheese
  • Seasoning to taste
Cook the eggs at a rapid boil for eight minutes.

Remove from the heat, drain and run the eggs under cold water for a minute to prevent them discolouring.

Allow the eggs to sit in cold water for five minutes, then peel, and quarter.

In a food processor bowl or blender, combine the eggs with the other ingredients.

You can also just mash this together, but you won't get the same creamy consistency.

Taste and season if necessary.



  1. Oh Mimi, you are making me HUNGRY! I have to try this over the weekend. Thanks

  2. Mimi, is the cream cheese the sort you get in a jar like Kraft Cream Cheese Spread or is it Philly Cheese?

  3. Philly style Edwina, but home brand is fine :)


I love hearing from you! I always respond to comments, so don't be shy! Mimi xxx
