Wish Upon A Dish: Deviled Egg Salad

Deviled Egg Salad

It's no secrest The Nudge adores eggs. I would say love but that word is so overused in relation to food ingredients and now that I think of it adore isn't all that great either.
So how do you describe a food you could eat every day for the rest of your life?

Smashingly good.
Extol, and my new favorite.....

Can you worship an egg?
Treasure a chicken?
Fancy a shrimp.
Praise the pig!

Imagine all this because I read an article that asked the question....can a diabetic eat three eggs every day?
It had to be a typo. I might eat 3 eggs a week but certainly not every day.The Nudge could, and would if his favorite go to pub near work served their omelet special each day.

We all know now-a-day eggs are laid by chickens that eat a much better diet then even 3 years ago, so now they have all sorts of minerals and omega's, but remember they still have the bad part, cholesterol.
If your cholesterol is normally below 200, eggs are a good source of protein and inexpensive enough to enjoy a few times a week. So, yes diabetics, relish those eggs and praise the hen!

When my market has a sale on eggs (Easter is a great time), I will  usually buy two dozen and make hardboiled eggs for a snack during the day and then a dinner omelet. I am, and always have been one to eat them scrambled but since mastering the perfect poached egg, I often will make something that I can top with an egg and once a month I make this favorite breakfast dish.

Today I made a Deviled Egg Salad. Probably the best egg salad I have ever eaten.
If you like heat this salad is for you.

Deviled Egg Salad
makes 2 sandwiches
* 4 hard boiled eggs, diced (I use an egg slicer both ways)
* 1/3 cup low fat mayonnaise
* 1 teaspoon horseradish mustard
* 1 teaspoon Sambal Oelek (rooster sauce)
* Salt & pepper to taste
* 2 teaspoons Mirin

Mix everything together and let rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour if possible. Overnight is the best.
