Not to be confused with the cocktail, although it would go nicely with this Mimosa, the French version of the deviled egg. The French named Mimosas after the mimosa tree, which has small yellow flowers. The grated egg yolk resembles the yellow flowers on the mimosa tree.Print
1. Hard boil eggs - see the notes below for a tip
2. Peel the eggs
3. Remove the yolks from the hard-boiled eggs and set aside.
4. Fill the egg with homemade mayonnaise or aioli.
5. Use a cheese grater to grate the egg yolk on top of the eggs.
A second method is to cut the hard-boiled eggs in half and leave the yolk intact. Lay the eggs yolk side up on a plate and top with a generous dollop of homemade mayonnaise or aioli. This method is quicker and more convenient if you do not have a cheese grater.
Serve the Mimosas on a large platter or in small plastic spoons for entertaining. You can find the spoons here.
Dinner tip: When you have leftover homemade mayonnaise, boil eggs in the evening, and the next day it will take just minutes to plate your Mimosas. Serve with a salad with homemade Caesar dressing, or a bowl of soup, and some fruit for dessert.
"Finding you [has] truly inspired me to cook more and focus on quality ingredients. Strengthening my kitchen intuition has been key, it's how I know to roll leftovers into something new or I can see what I bought and come up with creative solutions.
As a family, we always valued sitting down together for dinner but now it's done with so much less stress. I can be done with work and still make easy meals . . . amazing quality meals that are thrown together in a short time and we get to enjoy each other!"
“Your suggestions are so priceless! Thank you for such valuable content. My family is closer than ever, thanks to you!”

"We have made a lot of progress over here under your care. We are now all eating from the same “pot” which I was surprised how much my kids loved. They were so excited when I put the food in the middle of the table. They asked for it the next day, Can we do that special fancy dinner thing where we have a feast? It really is such a better ritual—passing the food around and all sharing from the same platter, a real game changer."
“I don't know if I told you, but I accidentally lost about 8 lbs after cutting out most semi-processed foods!"
