Next week in the Tea Party series we'll cover sweet treats, but today we finish up the miniature sandwiches.
Mix together chopped hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, a little garlic powder, fresh (or dried) dill, chopped dill pickle, minced celery and you've got one of my favorites smiling back up at you.
If your hard boiled egg has a grey ring around the yolk, you've cooked it far too long. It tastes fine, of course, but if you're hosting a tea you don't want anything as indelicate as grey egg yolks!
For perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs, bring a pot of water with 1 Tbsp.
vinegar to a boil. Gently place eggs (room temperature eggs are best,
as they won't crack open from temperature shock) in the boiling water, cover the pot with a lid, remove from heat, and set a timer to 15 minutes. You'll have the happiest hard boiled egg you've ever cooked.
It makes a tasty Friday lunch, as well.
