Egg sandwiches

So it is the day after Easter and you have a dozen or so of hard-boiled eggs in your fridge.  Here’s an easy recipe for egg sandwiches.

One dozen eggs 
1/4 cup French fried onions
1/4 cup Ranch dressing
1 tbsp Mayo
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 tbsp cilantro flakes
1/8 cup crispy bacon optional

Peel eggs, mash and mix everything.  Bacon is optional,  You can add the ingredients a little at a time to reach desired texture.  Refrigerate for 1 hour.  Serve in a bowl with pita, Hawaiian rolls, sliced bread, wheat crackers or torn tortilla wraps on th side or simply make egg sandwiches and serve.  You can even chop lettuce and add a cup on the side before serving.  Enjoy!

California Salad

This is the best way to eat cauliflower!  Served cold as a salad / appetizer, you will surprise your guests with the flavors and texture of the combination in this nice treat.  You will enjoy it!


The Bulk: 2 bunches broccoli.  2 bunches  cauliflower.  1 bunch green onions.  2 packs of bacon.  1 cup sunflower seeds.  6 oz. craisens.  2 cups parmesan cheese.

The dressing: 1 cup mayo.  1 – 2 tsp sugar.  a dash of salt and pepper. 

Prep:Cook bacon to a crisp.  crush and set aside.  Chop all veggies to penny or smaller size.  I recommend hand plucking the tips of the broccoli & cauliflower.  Put veggies in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl mix the mayo, salt, pepper and sugar to taste.  Pour dressing in the bowl of veggies and mix till veggies are coated.  Add the cheese, chopped green onions, sunflower seeds and craisens.  Mix everything and refrigerate.  Mix in the bacon and serve.
