Hard-boil the eggs, first of all. Don’t forget to plunge them into cold water when they’re cooked – this prevents that nasty blackening around the yolk, as I’m sure you know. When they have cooled down, shell them and cut in half, lengthways. Remove the yolks.
Put half the egg yolks into a bowl and mash them down. Pour in the mayonnaise and mix well, then add most of the chopped olives.
