Egg Salad

I was sent home from my mom's last night with a big bag of hard boiled eggs. I swear she must have made 3 dozen eggs so she had a TON of leftovers. When I have extra eggs I love to make some egg salad. Of course like most salads I dont exactly measure.... but here are the basics to some yummy egg salad

8 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1/2 green pepper, diced
around 1 cup of Miracle whip (or mayo)
around 2 t of honey dijon mustard

1. Mix eggs and green peppers in a big bowl
2. Add miracle whip a big spoonful at a time mixing it into the egg mixture. Stop when you get the consistency you prefer.
3. Add honey dijon and mix
4. Add salt and pepper to taste

Serve on croissants, toast, ciabatta or whatever bread you prefer.

Tomorrow I will share my awesome deviled egg recipe.

Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Mmmmm meatloaf! This meatloaf is made of turkey and not the normal mix of beef and pork. It also has a well of cheesy goodness running through the center of it. Its awesome both right from the oven or cold for a leftover meatloaf sandwich. In fact this picture was taken the next morning before I scarfed it down for breakfast. (yes I said breakfast)

19.2 oz package of ground turkey
1/2 cup (plus 2T) of milk
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 T worchestershire sauce
1 cup of crushed saltine crackers
2t italian seasoning
1 egg
1/4 t pepper
8 oz shredded cheese (I use a mix of whatever I have on hand, cheddar, mozzarella, colby jack.. whatever)

Preheat oven to 400

1. Toss everything (but the cheese) in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. (I use my hands)
2. Press 1/2 of mixture into a loaf pan. Make a well by pressing the mixture up the side of the pan
3. Fill the well with cheese
4. Top with remaining meat mixture
5. Spread a layer of ketchup on top of your meatloaf
6. Bake 50-60 minutes or until meat is cooked. Allow to sit 10 minutes before cutting
