The other day, there was a sale on eggs. A SALE. On EGGS.
I thought I was dreaming. I buy eggs like it's going out of fashion, and will never make a comeback. So I wasn't worried about the 2 dozen eggs still in my fridge, I was going to buy the eggs till I reach the limit. Sadly, the limit was three dozen.
Most people would think that this amount of eggs can never be used before it expires. But have no fear, egg salad pretty much uses a whole dozen. And eggs are a great breakfast. I just had my first boiled egg in YEARS!
This is really weird for me, considering that "boiled eggs" was the first words I said when I was a kid. My parents thought it was cute, until I would make them read my favorite picture books. In one of the frames, there was a picture of a bear sitting at the breakfast table eating a boiled egg. I would point and yell "BOILED EGG!! BOILED EGG!!" and my parents would give an exasperated "Cathleen, that is not the point of the story, they are JUST eating breakfast"
So I made double, triple, I don't even know how much of this egg salad, but I loved it. I put it on crackers, made sandwiches, and of course just straight out of the bowl. Over the kitchen sink. Classy.
So I think I know what I'll be making for lunch everyday when I go back to school. Yes, packing my own lunch. I'll give it a try. Whenever I don't think I can do it, I'll just remember how delicious this tastes. And I will make it before you could say hamburger. (Even though it's summer, I haven't had a hamburger in so long. Weird, I know...)
What you'll need:
-1/2 cup mayonnaise
-2 teaspoons goat cheese (I used fine herb goat cheese)
+salt and pepper to taste
1. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring the water to a boil and immediately remove from heat.
2. Let eggs stand in the hot water for around 10 minutes
3. Remove from hot water, and place in a bowl of cold water. Peel the eggs, and chop them into cubes.
4. Place the chopped eggs into a medium bowl and stir in the mayonnaise and goat cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
