Grate or finely dice the onion, melt the butter, beat the raw egg and mix them all together with the breadcrumbs, herbs, and seasoning. This is our vegetarian forcemeat.
Beat the forcemeat smooth.
Shell the boiled eggs, cover them completely with a thick layer of forcemeat, having a little flour on your hands may help with this.
Then fry them a nice brown.
Suitable as a main course too, serve with vegetables and gravy.
