Boil the eggs for approx. 10 minutes, rinse in cold water, peel and cut in half.

Remove the egg yolks and put them in a bowl.

Season the egg yolks with salt, pepper and mustard and stir. Stir in 100ml of oil, then 100g of sour cream. Finally stir in 100g of Schmand (fatty sour cream). If you don't have Schmand, you can also just use the same sour cream instead.

Cut the egg white into small cubes. Add 2/3 of egg white into the green sauce and garnish with the remaining egg white.
