People enjoy spending time together with their families and friends during the holidays. So, when one thinks of the holidays often the cuisine comes to mind. Especially, if one is hosting an event. The traditional holiday fare of turkey, prime beef, ham or lamb is usually served with those tasty side dishes that often accompany the main dish.
Hosting a large family and friends gathering can be somewhat intimidating to many without much cooking experience. Having family and friends prepare several dishes, or as we say, “pitch-in” to help seems to work very well. The host only needs to prepare the main dish and whatever other dishes they feel comfortable making. I was very lucky growing up in New Orleans where there was never any shortage of great cooks, so asking a friend to contribute was the norm of the neighborhood.
So, on with the recipe! Most people think of breakfast when they think of eggs. For that reason, eggs are often overlooked for side dishes or snacks. A delicious creamy egg salad on a toasted multigrain bread can be a great snack or complete meal.
This dish can be made days ahead of time and served for breakfast or snack any time of the day or night. It’s inexpensive, quick, delicious and packed full of protein.
Be sure to use high quality organic free range eggs. Yes, you can see and taste the difference, really!
Don’t forget to use a high-quality multigrain bread. Remember, the bread is 50% of a successful delicious sandwich!
Small batch three or four guests. Multiply the ingredients accordingly for larger servings.
4 -Organic Free Range Boiled Eggs chopped
1- Rib of fresh celery chopped fine
1/4 cup of chopped fresh Parsley (you can add more if you like, I do)
1-teaspoon of creole mustard
1-tablespoon of yellow mustard
1/4-teaspoon of Tony Chachere’s Creole Spice (I add a little extra)
2-3 large tablespoons of Blue Plate Mayo (Because it’s simply the best Mayonnaise in all the land)
2 or 3 shakes of Worcestershire sauce.
2 or 3- sliced green onions (optional, I don’t use)
Salt and black pepper to taste.
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl, add chopped boiled eggs, stir, that’s it!
Bon Appetit !
