Now, squeeze out some of the milk from the bread. Don't discard the milk. We'll need it in a few steps!

Put the bread into a sieve.

Put the bread into a sieve.

Press the bread through the sieve

Working over our bowl, use your fingers to press the bread through the sieve.

Scrape the bread through the sieve

In my case very little went directly into the bowl. Use a spoon to scrape off the paste on the underside of the sieve. Put it into the bowl.

Press a hard boiled egg through the sieve

Hard boil an egg. Put the yolk into the sieve and repeat the process.

Press a hard boiled egg through the sieve

I found it easier to use a spoon to force the egg through the sieve.

>Scrape the egg from the bottom of the sieve

As with the bread, most of the egg stayed stuck onto the bottom of the sieve until I scraped it into the bowl with a spoon.

Blend

Blend the ingredients together.

Add an egg white

Separate out the other egg. We only need the egg white. Add it to the bowl.

Add 1/2 C Olive Oil

Now, add 1/2 C Olive Oil.

Pour in the milk we squeezed out from the bread.

Add 2-3 T of fresh chopped chives
