Egg Salad Bites


I'll do a quick morning post today - I'm off to see Art Smith, Oprah Winfrey's personal chef, who's in Stockholm to launch a new book today. Very exciting!

Anyway, this is a quick and easy starter, perfect to serve to your guests with a drink or two while you're putting the finish touches on the food. Or serve this as part of a buffet! You can easily adapt this to your liking - skip the curry perhaps, use chili instead, add some mayo if you want to, and so on. Have fun with it!

I use kavring which is probably not available in most places. Use a nice rye bread instead, but preferrably one with a hint of sweetness.

Egg Salad Bites

3 hard-boiled eggs
1 tsp curry
2 tbsp thick yogurt (10% fat)
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1/2 green apple (like Granny Smith), finely diced
50 ml (oh, say 1/4 cup) pecans, finely chopped

kavring (or other rye bread)

Boil the eggs if you haven't already, and let them cool completely. Mash them and mix with curry, yogurt and salt. Add the onion and the apple.

Toast the bread and cut into triangles. Spread some of the egg salad on top, and finish with a sprinkle of pecans.

Recipe in Swedish:

Those look wonderful - and quite a lot like something my mom used to make, just without the apple & nuts. Don't know why I don't make egg salad more often!
