Devilled eggs or eggs mimosa are hard-boiled eggs, shelled, cut in half, and filled with the hard-boiled egg’s yolk mixed with other ingredients such as mayonnaise and mustard. They are a tasty side dish or appetiser and are great for parties. This simple recipe uses spinach to give unexpected colour and flavour to this yummy variation on devilled eggs.
