(Widow's Walk chapter 43)

Susan is preparing lunch and showing Spenser the proper way to make egg salad sandwiches. He finds the result to be rather good.

Susan's Egg SaladEdit

  • 5 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/3 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 5 leaves Bibb lettuce
  • 10 slices white bread

Put eggs in bowl, add Miracle Whip and celery, stir to mix. Spoon mixture onto five slices of bread, top with a lettuce leaf and another slice of bread.

For proper presentation cut each sandwich into attractive quarters and lay out on a platter, artfully garnished with cherry tomatoes and cornichons. Serve with a chilled Riesling. Makes enough for two people and one aging German shorthair pointer.

Spenser's Egg SaladEdit

  • Substitute mayonnaise for Miracle Whip
  • substitute chopped bell pepper for celery
  • snip in a few chives
  • and use a heartier bread, perhaps whole wheat.

Bullets and Beer Egg SaladEdit

Susan has pretty much the right idea but it could be a little spicier. Start by putting 1/4 tsp dry mustard in the bowl. Add a small amount of water and mix to form a watery paste. Add eggs, Miracle Whip, and 1/4 tsp salt. Lose the crunchies; egg salad should be smooth. Substitute sweet pickled gherkins for the cornichons.

BTW: "cornichon" is the French word for "gherkin"; a very small cucumber selected for pickling. I found a bottle (packaged in Turkey) on the imported food shelf at my local supermarket. They are rather like dills but a bit more sour; not at all what your average American expects of miniature pickles but an interesting variation.
