Interesting recipe. the stars were upped because the end result was so darn tasty. the frying gives the egg a different & nice flavor. but this is a lot of work. if you have a quiet day with no plans, this is a show stopper recipe. cutting through the shells was difficult & it took forever (it seemed) to remove the eggs from the shells because of all the little bits of shell. nothing ruins my appetite more than crunching on egg shells. in the end, i only restuffed 4 halves so everyone could have a taste. the rest if the mixture i used as egg salad for sandwiches. it could also be used in various canapes. i am very glad i tried this as it's a very intriguing recipe.
