|Tonka is worried|
LUCY BURDETTE: Ruh-oh, your husband invited company for lunch but there's not a cold cut or a can of tuna to be had in the fridge or the larder. He's in the dog house for sure...
Not to worry--yummy egg salad to the rescue! (This recipe makes 3-4 sandwiches, depending on how high you heap the filling.)
4 hard-boiled eggs
8-10 stuffed olives
1 heaping tablespoon fresh dill
1 heaping tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Bring water with eggs to boil, turn this down to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Cool the eggs in the same pan.
Meanwhile, slice the olives, and snip the dill.
Peel and halve the eggs and place them in a bowl with the olives and dill.
Mash with a pastry cutter until you like the texture.
Mix in mayo and mustard, add a couple twists of fresh black pepper. Serve on toast with a little salad or some fruit on the side for garnish.
Voila! Everybody's happy and it even looks like you were expecting them:).
And John's out of the dog house--phew!
