A Simply Egg~cellent Sandwich

My grandfather, Goff, ate 2 scrambled eggs:  fresh eggs from the hen house; with just about every meal, for as long as I can remember, and he lived well into his 80’s.  He definitely loved them ~ and, I do too, although I don’t eat nearly that many!

This is a simple recipe for a lush, delicate, tasty egg salad sandwich.  And, I imagine, by now, you’re probably saying, “Really, a recipe for an egg salad sandwich?” There are a lot of folks out there, who have never made egg salad for a sandwich.  So this is for them, and you too.  Sometimes, I add a couple of tablespoons of chopped pimento-stuffed green olives.  

By the way, I came across this “Sandwich Personality Test,” what your favorite sandwich says about your personality and love life.  

“Egg salad enthusiasts are often the center of attention.  They are entertaining and crave adventure.  The best words to describe those who love egg salad sandwiches are:  charming and energetic.  Egg salad sandwich lovers are the “universal romantic” and are often compatible with all sandwich lovers.”

An egg salad sandwich seems like heaven to me ~ deviled eggs on bread…

Egg Salad Sandwich


6 eggs
1/4 cup Hellmann’s mayonnaise
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
2 tablespoons onion, minced
1/3 cup celery, finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste


Place eggs in saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and let stand in hot water for 18-20 minutes for hard-cooked eggs.
Remove from water. Cool, peel, and chop.
Combine all in a bowl and chill.
Serve on your favorite bread and sprinkle with chives.

It’s simply a satisfying sandwich!

  1. Que buenos, con un buen pan que rico.


  2. I love the idea of the chopped pimento stuffed olives with this, yum yum. have a good day Diane

  3. Your Egg Salad sandwich is wonderful. and I love the pickle garnish. Sometimes we make Tuna Egg Salad by adding a 9 oz can of tuna, so my hubby isn't eating so many eggs.

    Have a great day!

  4. jose, gracias! Si, con buen pan. Es muy bien!

    Diane, the olives add a great taste to it.

    Becky, that would work! It sounds really good to me!

  5. It is a yummy looking sandwich! Love the photo too! I think if you listened to everything you were and were not supposed to eat you'd go nuts! There's nothing like a farm fresh egg!

  6. Hi Pam, what a fantastic and great picture, story and sandwich!!!

  7. Hablo solo vente paroles en Espanol. Huevos is one of them. Amo huevos en salata con pan.

  8. Sounds like my recipe although I add some finely grated cheddar cheese! I think I need to go make some! :-)

  9. OB&CS, thank you! I so agree with you. He not only ate all those eggs, everything was fried in lard. Farm fresh is best for sure!

    Lia, thanks! They look pretty stern in the pic, but they were great. Grandma was a sweetie!

    Stephen, lol!!! Excelente! vente paroles? Me gusto mucho los huevos y comida mexicana tambien. Que tengas un buen dia!

  11. Claudia, thanks! You're so right! My grandmother made him 2 scrambled eggs with about every meal and never thought a thing about it. They're a great source of protein and maybe better for us than the experts say???

  22. I'm an egg salad lover and this looks perfect!

  23. Haha,don't worry, I am a HUGE egg salad fan. I make it with goat cheese, chipotle (the best) and of course, the generic one. This looks fantastic!

  24. You can't beat a great egg salad sandwich! I sometimes put bacon in mine.

  25. Egg salad sandwiches are one of the best things EVER. For me I have to use Dukes mayo though. My mom was a Hellman's, don't know how I became a Dukes person.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

“He toasted his bacon on a fork and caught the drops of fat on his bread; then he put the rasher on his thick slice of bread, and cut off chunks with a knife, poured his tea into his saucer, and was happy.”
