A Twist on Egg Salad Sandwiches 

If you were hoping for a gluten free sandwich recipe, sorry to disappoint, but not today.  I have a gluten free bread recipe but it’s rather touchy, and I’d like to perfect it more before I post about it. 

 However, this recipe is great for replacing a sandwich in a packed lunch. There are several variations you can do, but this is the basic recipe. 

 First you need about 8 hard boiled eggs. You can chop them or dice them. I put them in my little manual food processor because I like the smaller texture. 

  

  
 

  
Then dump them into a mixing bowl and add these ingredients;

  
 1/2 c. Mayo

1 tsp. Mustard

 1/4 tsp. Celery Salt, optional 

1/4 cup pickle slices, also chopped fine in the food processor

Salt to taste. 

Mix everything together well. I have never used exact measurements. I always just dumped stuff together; so I had to measure everything to make this recipe. What I’m saying is that this is a very forgiving recipe. You can tweak it a lot and it still tastes good. 😊

Any flavor pickle works for this, but I used sweet hot dill pickles which I think really makes it. 

To take it up a notch; add one of these variations;

1/2 c. Chopped cooked bacon 

1/2 c. Chopped cooked ham

Serve with your favorite gluten free tortilla chips.  Yep, not only is it easy to make with a few simple ingredients, it’s a delicious dip!

 Word of caution, eating with salty tortilla chips means you don’t need to add as much salt to your dip or it will be way too salty.

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls 

Here is an appealing food for these snowy cold winter days. Warm cinnamon rolls oozing with butter and brown sugar and sweet frosting.  You don’t need to be deprived if you can’t eat gluten. Here is your version!

 

 The ingredient list:

  
1/2 c. warm water

3/4 c. lukewarm milk

2 T. yeast

1/4 c. sugar 

1/3 c. shortening 

2 eggs

4-5 c. gluten free all purpose baking flour 

 In large bowl, pour in water and milk. Add yeast, sugar, shortening and eggs. Stir to combine. 

Then slowly start adding your gluten free flour as you mix it.  

 
You can use a mixer or just stir with a large spoon if you’d rather exercise your arm muscles. 😃 

 Add in four cups, then if the dough is still pretty sticky, gradually, 1/4 cup at a time, add more flour. You want it to sorta clump together in a ball, but still be a very soft dough. I ended up using the full 5 cups in this batch.  

 
Set aside to raise. 

 Melt a stick of butter in a small bowl.  

Mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 T. cinnamon in another small bowl. 

   
 
 Once the dough has raised to your satisfaction, (15 min or so) dump it on to a greased counter and knead for about one minute with your hands.  

 
Roll out dough in a rectangular shape to your desired thickness, approx 1/2 – 3/4 inch.  

 
Pour the melted butter on and spread around. Sprinkle lots of that yummy cinnamon sugar over top.  

 
Then, very carefully, starting on the long side, begin to roll it up. It can be hard to get started. If you get cracks in the dough, just pinch together with your fingers and keep rolling.  As you can see, mine has lots of cracks, but it doesn’t affect the taste. 😊

 
 With a sharp knife, cut into 1 1/2 inch (or thicker, if you prefer) slices.  Place slices on greased pan. Let raise again for about 10 min. At this point, if you like, pour on more melted butter. 

 
  
Bake at 350* for 20 minutes or until done. Don’t overbake! Remove from pan and frost with your favorite frosting when cool.  

I used a cream cheese frosting for this batch. I will be posting that recipe in a later post.   

 Sit down with me by the fire now and enjoy one with a cup of cocoa and watch the snow drifting down outside. Just lovely!
