Mushroom Appetizer


The Prataiolo appetizer is a delicious cold dish made with hard-boiled eggs, small tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, and oil-marinated mushrooms. It is perfect to serve as an appetizer and can be prepared in a few simple steps. The eggs are boiled in hot water, then peeled and cut in half. The tomatoes are hollowed out and left to drain to remove excess water. The lettuce is thinly sliced and arranged on a serving plate. The eggs are then placed upright on the bed of lettuce and topped with a tomato cap. Finally, the oil-marinated mushrooms are distributed on the plate and the appetizer is garnished with mayonnaise to taste. It is recommended to adjust the salt if necessary and serve the Prataiolo appetizer cold. Enjoy!
