Fruit soldiers with lemon-cream eggs
Preparation time : 15 minutes
Cooking time : 7 minutes
Total time : 22 minutes
4 medium or large Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
1 small pineapple
1 x pack Waitrose 2 Perfectly Ripe Mango
250g essential Waitrose Creamy Soft Cheese
40g caster sugar
Finely grated zest 1 lemon, plus 1 tbsp juice
4 tsp lemon or orange curd
Place the eggs in a medium saucepan and add enough cold water to cover. Bring to a simmer over a high heat and cook for 7 minutes, or until hard boiled. Cool completely under cold running water. Remove the tops with a spoon or sharp knife, scoop out the contents with a teaspoon (use for sandwich fillings or other recipes), then thoroughly wash and dry the shells both inside and out.
Remove the skin and core from the pineapple, and the skin and stone from the mangoes. Slice the fruit lengthways into 1–2cm wide soldiers for dipping.
In a bowl, whisk the cheese, sugar, lemon zest and juice until smooth. Spoon into the clean egg shells. Make a dip in each one and fill with the fruit curd. Serve with the fruit soldiers.
