How to Make Eggs Mimosa with Tuna Filling

Step-by-Step

  1. Shell eggs and cut them in half lengthwise.
    Remove the yolks carefully;reserve 1 of them for the mimosa; put the rest into a food processor or blender.
    Set the egg whites aside.
  2. Add the tuna, cheese, olive oil, rum, curry powder and salt and pepper to taste to the food processor of blender. Add the zest and juice along with the capers, if using.
    Process at medium speed until you have a thick cream, about 1 minute.
    The mixture must not be too liquid.
  3. Fill the egg-white halves with the tuna mixture, using enough of the mixture to round the top so that it looks like the original egg shape.
    Arrange the stuffed eggs on a large flat plate.
    Put the reserved yolk in a fine-mesh strainer held over the stuffed eggs and crush the yolk with the back of a spoon, forcing it through the mesh so that the stuffed eggs are evenly covered with the sieved yolk, or mimosa. Keep in a cool place until ready to serve. Makes 8 half eggs.
