These Deviled Eggs are a treat waiting to be devoured.
Do you love eggs but get cravings for something a bit different?
When I get into certain moods where I crave something I end up trying everything until it can be satisfied.
For some reason lately I have been doing this with eggs.
Seems like hard boiled was the way to go, but I just couldn’t pin down that certain something I wanted.
When I try to be good and not indulge I usually end up eating something “close” to what I am craving.
But I can’t satisfy that urge until I finally break down and have a bite or two of what I first wanted.
This behavior has ruined my diet more than once.
Have you ever done that?
Until I happened across this recipe I was totally stumped.
Perhaps it was the Worcestershire sauce, or the lemon, or maybe the tabasco?
No, the horseradish?
The ingredients of egg, mayo, mustard, onion, salt and pepper complete this salad.
And you are assured of having everything you need to make an emergency lunch.
Got bread? Make a great sandwich.
You can have lunch prepared in the time it take to hard boil those eggs.
Have a cold?
This can be the answer to the question “what is something soft and fast that I can make for lunch?”
I like to chop some celery and add it to the mixture.
I use a large slot grater for chopping the eggs before stirring them into the other ingredients.
Have a lot of left over eggs from the Easter Bunny?
Place a few in a bowl as a centerpiece and snack for the kids.
Chop up the rest and add into the salad!
A good standby, Egg Salad is great to keep on hand.
And it stays fresh in the refrigerator 3-4 days.
Easter 2014 was extra special for our family. So I made this Easter Egg Bread Ring.
Not only was it my turn to cook, but we had a larger crowd than normal.
My granddaughter has chose that Easterto be baptized.
That meant an extra special menu.
And themed before and after dinner finger foods to last the day.
I am certain people were coming when they could and leaving as they must.
A menu I can prepared over two days was important.
Fitting the refrigerated foods into my ice box was key.
That meant taking my stock down to almost nothing to prepare for the day.
I chose this bread to make since it is definitely Easter themed. And it performed a double duty of centerpiece and appetizer.
And it didn’t overshadow the celebration!
I hope you like it and give it a try!
