Thank you for sharing this! I’ve been randomly craving egg salad the past few days – I guess this is a sign I need to make some! :star_struck:

I’ve never seen an egg salad recipe that calls for steak sauce :thinking: I’ll have to try it next time I make some!

One of my current favorite ways to prepare hard-boiled eggs is to slice them in half, sprinkle with a touch of coarse kosher salt on top, and then plop on a few dashes of Valentina hot sauce :yum:

Great find @Amethyst! I know my husband will eat egg salad, maybe my son, but it’s getting to be cookout weather & I could always bring it with me.

You’re welcome @wade! I hadn’t seen a recipe with steak sauce either but it sounded interesting. I’m not one for boiled eggs but I used to just eat them with salt and ignored the white, popping the yellow out to eat. LOL.

Glad you liked it @NickWick!

I just find it amusing that this recipe is for two eggs only. Like anyone makes that small amount of egg salad. Glad you liked it!

I’ve got to admit, I picked this recipe because of the title. It seemed fitting for a witch’s group! LOL.

Maybe it’s for a cute little old couple that share meals with single rose on the table & a little lamp

Aww, cute picture … but one of them would hog half the egg salad if you just made this little, you know one of them would!

While I’m not personally a big fan of egg salad, this recipe sounds yummy! :egg: :green_salad: It sounds like @Amethyst and @wade both had egg salad on the mind- and you know what they say about great minds! :grin::brain:

Thanks for sharing, Kasie! :yum:

I forgot to ask my husband & my neighbor if they wanted some because for some reason I am really good at making things that I won’t eat. For instance I don’t eat anything that comes out of the water, but I make some amazing crab cakes that people come to eat from other towns! I won’t eat them though. Everyone raves about them. I just kind of found a few recipes & mish mashed them to make a new one & voila! Best crab cakes this side of the Bourne Bridge.

You’re welcome love! I’m not a big fan of egg salad either, but I figure some of us are going to have oodles of colored eggs this weekend, so why not?

You’re welcome! Glad you liked it!

See, I don’t think I can eat crap in its whole form, it looks too much like a bug. But crab cakes? I can get down with that.

I didn’t even think of the colored eggs! My family eats them hard boiled, but I don’t, so maybe I can get them to eat this too! I hate them going to waste after making them. I couldn’t think of anything to do with them.

Yeah, I bet this salad would look really weird if the food dyes come through the white! LOL.

Yeah, maybe not a good time to introduce it, it should probably be in it’s natural state. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

A really good point! :grin: I agree with you and Krissie that eating the dye may not be the best idea (although I suppose it depends on what kind of dye is used- food coloring, natural dyes like beet juice, or other edible dyes should be okay :+1: ) but it is definitely true that there will be a lot of eggs about over the next few days! :laughing: :egg:

Wishing everyone a very egg-citing Ostara! Bless-egg be :egg: :yum::sparkles:

I’ve put together so many home cookbook, it’s unreal. Then I look at them at intervals and say EEK! What was I thinking of !

I bet those will be nice for your family though, they’re little snapshots of time that feature food! Like looking at your hairstyles in old pictures, horrifying in the present but all the trend back when the picture was taken.
