Egg Salad BLT Sandwich

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 Review by judywrites

This could be a yummy way to use up all the extra hard-boiled eggs from Easter!

Egg Salad BLT

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup¬†fat-free mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons¬†thinly sliced green onions
  • 3 tablespoons¬†reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons¬†whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon¬†freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon¬†grated lemon rind
  • 8¬†hard-cooked large eggs
  • 8¬†(1 1/2-ounce) slices peasant bread or firm sandwich bread, toasted
  • 4¬†center-cut bacon slices, cooked and cut in half crosswise
  • 8¬†(1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
  • 4¬†large Boston lettuce leaves

Preparation

  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well.
  2. Cut 2 eggs in half lengthwise; reserve 2 yolks for another use. Coarsely chop remaining egg whites and whole eggs. Add eggs to mayonnaise mixture; stir gently to combine.
  3. Arrange 4 bread slices on a cutting board or work surface. Top each bread slice with 1/2 cup egg mixture, 2 bacon pieces, 2 tomato slices, 1 lettuce leaf, and 1 bread slice. Serve sandwich immediately.
  4. Beer note: A basic guideline of pairing a beverage with food is “like with like,” and bread and beer are yeasty kindreds. With an Egg Salad BLT sandwich, reach for a Samuel Adams Pale Ale ($7). The bready yeast and malt flavors are balanced with bitter hops that add some welcome snap to the meal. A cold, characterful American pale ale is also a more thirst-quenching choice than wine. –Jeffery Lindenmuth

Eggs Benedict with Bacon & Arugula

Friday, March 8, 2013 Review by judywrites

I am sucker for an Eggs Benedict recipe. We will eat this dish for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner or just because!

Eggs Benedict with Bacon & Arugula

This one sounds and looks yummy – maybe we will try it for Easter brunch.

Ingredients

  1. 8 large whole eggs
  2. 4 large egg yolks
  3. 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  4. Salt
  5. 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  6. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  7. 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
  8. 8 slices of applewood-smoked bacon, halved crosswise
  9. 5 ounces baby arugula
  10. 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  11. 4 English muffins, split and toasted

Directions

  1. In a heatproof bowl set over a pot of barely simmering water, whisk the 4 egg yolks with the wine and a pinch of salt until doubled in volume and slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Gradually add the melted butter, whisking constantly, until a thick, creamy sauce forms, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the lemon juice and Tabasco and season the hollandaise with salt. Keep the hollandaise sauce warm, whisking occasionally.
  2. In a skillet, cook the bacon over moderate heat, turning once, until crisp, 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel‚Äďlined plate. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat in the skillet. Add the arugula, toss quickly in the hot oil and transfer to a plate; season with salt.
  3. Bring a large, deep skillet of water to a simmer over moderate heat and add the vinegar. One at a time, break the eggs into a small bowl and pour them into the simmering water, leaving plenty of space between them. Poach the eggs until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, carefully transfer the eggs to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Arrange the toasted English muffin halves on plates and top with the bacon, poached eggs, arugula and hollandaise sauce. Serve immediately.
