Devilled Eggs (A hearty quick meal to beat the autumn chill)

   2 hard boiled eggs
   1 tb sp cooking oil ( a bit more if you like.)
   11/2 t sp chilli powder
   A pinch of oregano ( optional)
   Salt to taste
   Chopped  black olives
   Grated cheese to taste

  •  Cut the hard boiled eggs into half length wise.
  • Heat the oil in a fry pan till smoking.
  • Lower heat and add the chilli powder taking care not to burn it. The oil should turn a nice red colour.
  • Add the salt and oregano.
  • Place the egg halves in the hot oil  and let them colour lightly.
  • Flip them over and cook the other side as well. Total cooking time should not be more than 2 minutes after putting the  egg halves in the oil.
  • Place on a plate and sprinkle cheese and the chopped olives on top.
  • Garnish with any fresh green herbs of your choice.
  • Enjoy with toasted or plain bread which has been rubbed with the remaining chilli oil.
  • Will certainly hearten a cold gloomy autumn evening.
