  • Put the toasted hazelnuts into a soft tea-towel and rub off the skins. Chop 25 g (1 oz) of them.

  • Drain the egg whites and pat them dry with absorbent kitchen paper. Spoon the egg and cheese mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1 cm (1/2 inch) plain nozzle and pipe the mixture into the centres of the egg whites. Sit the eggs on the watercress and top each with a whole hazelnut.
