Ingredients

  • 4 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. light mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbs. oil-cured black olives, chopped

Preparation

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 20 to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 12 minutes. Drain and rinse eggs under cold running water. Refrigerate eggs, 30 minutes. Peel eggs; set aside 2 yolks for another use.

In a medium bowl, mash remaining eggs with a fork or potato masher. Add the onions, mayonnaise and mustard, and mix well. Stir in the olives and season with salt and pepper.
