Egg Salad with Cheddar

Egg Salad with Cheddar at The Happy HousewifeBy contributing writer Beth

Egg Salad is a staple at our house. The kids love the creamy flavor, and I love the extra punch of protein from the eggs.

We always have all these ingredients on hand, and you likely do too. So it’s a quick and easy choice for lunch when you’re tired of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Here’s a word to the wise: Do not overcook the eggs. Yes, it’s possible, and I don’t advise it.

I used to overcook my eggs. I think I did that because I was so scared of undercooking them. Yuck! When you overcook them, the egg whites get very chewy and the yolk turns green. So follow these directions carefully to keep that from happening to you. Nobody likes green eggs, no matter what Dr. Seuss says!

Speaking of green, those of you who are adventurous and health-minded could try an alternative to this recipe. Try replacing the mayo with avocado. No, I’m not kidding. It’s creamy and doesn’t have a really strong flavor. It will bind the ingredients together and still let the crunch of the celery and onions shine through.

Egg Salad
Serves: 4
 
In just a few minutes you can have a creamy egg salad. Serve it on your favorite bread or a on a bed of greens.
Ingredients
  • 5 eggs
  • ¼ cup celery, diced
  • ¼ cup white onion, diced
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, place the raw eggs and cover with cold water.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes at a low boil.
  3. Remove from the heat and carefully drain off all the water. Cover with cold water and a few cubes of ice. You'll want to do this to stop the eggs from overcooking. Leave them to cool for about 10 minutes until they're easier to handle.
  4. Peel the eggs and dice them up.
  5. Place the eggs, celery, onion, mayo, mustard, and cheese into a small bowl. Stir to combine.
  6. Add black pepper to taste.
  7. Cover and refrigerate at least thirty minutes to chill.
  8. We like to serve this on potato bread or over a green salad.

Gluten Free, Vegan Banana Blondies

Gluten Free & Vegan Banana Blondies at The Happy HousewifeBy contributing writer Tessa

I love having nourishing snacks on hand for kiddos so they fill their bodies with things that provide real nutrition and health benefits.  Of course, they have to like the way something tastes to make it happen, and these gluten free and vegan blondies fit the bill.  They’re like banana bread in a bar form.

Even better is the fact that I prepare the whole thing in my Blendtec blender, so prep AND clean up are a snap!

As your bananas turn from perfectly golden to black in a matter of days during the warm summer months, these gluten-free banana blondies are the perfect way to put those over-ripe bananas to use!

Gluten Free Banana Blondies
Serves: 12
 
Ingredients
Wet
  • 1½ cups mashed banana (about 3 large bananas)
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil (or preferred butter)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar (I used palm sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
Flour
  • 1⅓ cup gluten free flour mix (I used equal parts tapioca, toasted quinoa flour, and sorghum) No gum is necessary. Regular flour would work too.
Optional Add-Ins
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • chocolate chips to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons flax or chia meal
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, Grease an 8 x 8 inch pan.
  2. In a blender or food processor, puree all the wet ingredients until smooth.
  3. Pulse in the flour.
  4. Pulse in the add-ins, if using.
  5. Pour into prepared pan and bake in oven for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
