Egg Salad Toast

Happy Easter everyone!!!  Hope you are having a wonderful day.  At my house Easter is the one (and only) time of year that we have hard boiled eggs.  Yeah, you read that right.  We just don't eat them on a daily basis.  So it's the same for me every year, open up the cookbook to figure out how to boil the eggs...I know you think I'm kidding.  I mean seriously the lady that cooks and bakes and considers the kitchen her favorite room in the house and she still has to look up a recipe...I know, I know pretty sad but true....on the other hand I know exactly how we like to eat our hard boiled eggs.  At our house we eat our eggs on toast.  Egg Salad Toast to be exact.  How do you eat your hard boiled eggs?.....

Egg Salad Toast

2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and rinsed (I  like to peel mine then rinse with cold water, just to be sure I don't get any little pieces of shell in my salad)
1/3 c miracle whip
salt & pepper to taste
3 pieces of toast

First peel and rinse your eggs.  (I like to rinse my eggs with cold water after they are peeled just to be sure I don't get any little pieces of shell in my salad...yuck).  Then put your eggs in a bowl and mash them with a fork. Add your miracle whip till well blended.  Then spread on toast and top with salt & pepper to taste. 

It's a simple recipe, but it's easy and just the way we like it.  We eat egg salad toast for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Love it!!!

Hard Boiled Eggs

4 eggs
Ice Cold Water

Place eggs in a single layer in a medium saucepan.  Add enough cold water to come 1 inch above the eggs.  Bring to a boil on high heat.  Reduce heat to low/simmering.  Cover and cook for 15 minutes: drain.  Run cool water over the eggs.  Drain.  Cool completely before peeling.

Sometimes  hard-boiled eggs have an (harmless) greenish ring around the yolk.  To reduce the chances of this happening, make sure you start out with ice cold water over your eggs.
