Where'd All The Eggs Go??!!
My children, I've learned are egg eaters!! I hard boiled 18 eggs this morning for an egg salad recipe I found in Taste of Home. I thought with some good homemade bread it would make a perfect inexpensive dinner with zucchini bread for dessert. I put them in the fridge to cool and later when I was ready to prepare it I noticed they were all gone. Well, so much for that dinner!! We settled for frozen pizza that I had on hand for an easy Sunday dinner. At least I can say they got a good supply of protein today!! I was told Mary alone ate 5 of them!! Here is the recipe if you care to try it. Sounds really good.
This recipe has been doubled for our family. It would be easy to cut in half!!
16-18 hard boiled eggs
2 packages cream cheese-softened
1/2 C. mayo
1 teas. salt
1/2 teas. pepper
4 T. sweet pickle relish
4 T. parsley
little chopped onion and celery to taste
Mix together everything except eggs very well, then fold in chopped eggs. I suppose I'll have to try again tomorrow but I'll remember this time to try and hide them!!
