Got eggs?


Deviled Ham Eggs

6 hard-boiled eggs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon grated onion
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 can (2 1/2 ounces) deviled ham
Salt and pepper to taste
Paprika for garnish

Cut hard cooked eggs in half lengthwise-removing yolks to bowl. Mix remaining ingredients with yolks and pile lightly into reserved halves.
Sprinkle paprika over the eggs before serving.
Serves: 6

Scotch Eggs
4 hard boiled eggs
1 lb. sausage meat
1 egg
1 tbsp. seasoned flour
1/2 c. crisp bread crumbs
Oil to fry

Shell the hard boiled eggs. Press the sausage meat into meat squares on a floured board. Wrap the eggs in the sausage meat, making sure this is completely sealed without any air space or cracks. Brush with the beaten egg. Roll in bread crumbs. Heat oil and test it by placing a piece of stale bread with oil for 1 minute and it turns golden brown. Fry steadily for approximately 5 to 8 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Lift out, drain on crumpled paper and serve hot or cold. It is possible to bake these in the oven. Allow approximately 20 to 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

about 3/4 cup milk, half half or cream
about 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

Place a layer of sliced hard boiled eggs then sprinkle with crumbled bacon if using, dot with a few bits of butter, then repeat this layer process, finishing with a layer of buttered crumbs. Pour cream, milk or half and half over the whole dish until it comes about halfway up the side of the dish. Place in oven until heated and browned, about 4-6 minutes. serves 4
