I know , I know - an egg paste isn't anything unusual or creative. It's not a rocket science, but... In the current economic situation you have to be able to do SOMETHING from ANYTHING. This recipe isn't original though. It's from my University's canteen. I remember when I used to buy those sandwiches - big, white roll and a thick spread of an egg paste.... yum! I tired to recreate it for 2 reasons - not too many things in my fridge and to bring back all those memories from my time at the university. It was almost the same - but the memories were back, fresh as it was yesterday... I miss those days sometimes...
I know I won't be able to make exactly the same egg paste - one of the reasons: I never asked for an 'original recipe' ;) No more writing back to the essence :)
How to make it...
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon mayo
- salt, pepper
Boil the eggs. They have to have hard whites but slightly soft yolks - so they can 'form' a paste. Peal the eggs immediately after you take them out of the water (this is the tricky part) add butter (you have to add it to hot eggs, so it can melt easily), mayo and mash it well using a fork. Salt and pepper to your taste. This amount is perfect for 1 person. Spread on your choice of bread and eat! I also put some tomato on top - delicious :)
