Sneak-Peek Recipe…

egg_salad_appetizerPepperoni Egg Salad Appetizer

How to read and write a recipe is a major focus of our MY KITCHEN Outreach Program, Each class, we encourage our students to take the basic recipe we give them and, using ingredients from our “pantry table” create their own unique version of that dish.

This was one of my personal favorites, that one of the girls in class created, and one we used for the class final, where we prepare and serve a five-course dinner for parents and case-managers.

This is an amazing appetizer!

2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped (see our recipe: “How to cook Perfect Boiled Eggs!”)
2 ½ tsp. yellow mustard
2 ½ Tbsp. Mayonnaise
pinch each: salt & pepper
2 ½ tsp. sweet pickle relish
2 oz. pepperoni, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
Black olive slices
Combine eggs, mustard, mayo, salt & pepper, relish, and pepperoni, and mix until smooth.

Refrigerate, covered, at least two hours (overnight is best).

Spoon 1 Tbsp. of egg mixture onto each cracker, top with 2 olive slices, and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.

Serve immediately.
