Creamy Delicious Egg Salad

20181201_092553People 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.                 20181201_093733

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!

 

20181201_093855Small 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 or 3 shakes of Worcestershire sauce.

    IT WOULD BE NICE TO PROVIDE RECIPES FOR PEOPLE THAT NEED A LOW SODIUM DIET AND CARDIAC PATIENTS AS WELL, THIS WAY THE ENTIRE STATE OF FLORIDA CAN BE HEALTHY. IT SEEMS THAT THOSE WITH SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS ALWAYS GET EXCLUDED AT THIS TIME OF YEAR ESPECIALLY, AND EVEN THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

      This recipe is low sodium, you can omit salt and creole spice and add garlic powder, crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper for spice to make it near sodium free. The mayo is only about 3% sodium, so that’s considered low or you can use lite or olive oil mayo.

        THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE SUGGESTION, PLEASE KEEP US FOLKS IN MIND FOR FUTURE RECIPES. YOU COULD START A WHOLE NEW DIMENSION IN HEALTHY COOKING, AND HEALTHY COOKING IS EXCELLENT FOR EVERYONE. YOU ARE EXTREMELY FORTUNATE TO BE IN FLORIDA, WE HAVE PLANS TO BE THERE OURSELVES. GEORGIA IS ONE OF THE WORSE PLACES TO BE.
