Dilled Egg Salad on Prosciutto Bread
I simply have to start working days with a high protein breakfast usually an ontherun sandwich of some kind. Often it's eggs. Yes, egg salad for breakfast. Or sometimes for lunch. It's delicious, fast and makes a sort of cool refreshing change from a hot egg sandwich and it feels almost springlike at this time of year. So here's my entry for End of the Month Egg on Toast Extravaganza 4 the brainchild of witty bloggers Jeanne at Cook Sister! and Anthony at Spiceblog.
The other day (shortly after the crack of dawn when we educatrixtypes have to get up) I realized that I had both some lovely dilled egg salad in the fridge and a beautiful loaf of prosciutto bread from Morrone's. I threw together this little creation, snapped a sadly lacking photo, wrapped it up, grabbed the coffee thermos and ran to work. You can't really see the quantities of finely snipped dill with which the egg salad is laced, although the camera seems to have caught the generous covering of freshly ground pepper. The sweet little morsels of prosciutto that are snuggled into the toasted hunk of bread are also not apparent. But they were there. And they were good.
Egg salad is really a matter of taste. It's great with chopped scallions or finely minced red onion, but when I'm making it as breakfast option, I don't always put those in. Ditto mustard if it's for later in the day, I like a little spoonful of good Dijon in there. I actually like it with everything at almost any time I'm just conscious of trying not to offend my workmates too early in the day. I save that for when we're all more alert, and can enjoy it better. I also skip celery in this, although I love it, because I find that it makes the egg salad too watery and my sandwich gets soggy.
Once you've chopped the eggs, everything else depends on your preferences. Here are approximations for the way I like it:
4 hardcooked eggs
4 tablespoons of mayonnaise (and/or sour cream, crme frache, yogurt)
2 tablespoons finely snipped dill
juice of 1/4 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
Chop the eggs finely a pastry blender is a great quick tool for this. Mix everything else in, and taste. Does it need more lemon or salt? Should it be creamier, pepperier, dillier? Adjust to your liking, and chill. Make some delicious sandwiches on your favorite bread pumpernickel and toasted wholegrain also work really well here. Eat in a leisurely fashion, or wrap and run.
Before my husband went to Massachusetts to meet my family for the first time,[url=http://www.floware.fr]sac michael kors[/url], he practiced saying "You ah wicked retahded!" and "That was wicked pissa!", and we used to bust a gut laughing every time he did it. He says he forgives me my hairband past because I looked so "todally hot" with my big hair and spandex outfits. way.
We have to come up with a list of oldschool terms for revival. Yes, "skeeved" will definitely have to be right up there with "No, sah!".
I never heard "skeeved" and even though I have no idea what it means, I love the term anyway. I had to look it up. (I AM skeeved at miraclewhip though. ;^))
And yes, dill is one of my favourites! I always have difficulty deciding if we should garnish salmon steak with dilled mayonnaise, basil pesto or green peppercorn mayonnaise.
(I can contribute to the old highschool terms because I have blocked the whole sordid highschool memory from what left of my mind.)
Out here on the West side, we have Best Foods, which is Hellman and it the only acceptable mayo in my book.
Miracle Whip? No. Really . honestly, is there anymore more vile? I call it Miracle Sick, because I continually surprised that there are those who eat it and don throw up a little bit in their mouths, afterward.
