Alphabet cooking "E" is for eggs : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Today lets post any recipes using eggs. I know you all have lots of them! I have about 5 dozen in my frig and could use some good new recipes to try.

We love omlettes. Here is how I make mine. I beat the eggs with lots of herbs, garlic, and black pepper. Pour into hot skillet with a small amount of olive oil. Cook until almost set and flip over. The I spread cream of mushroom soup (about 2 TB) add some bacon, sausage or ham (precooked) some cheddar cheese and some hot pepper rings. I might also add finely chopped tomatoes, red or green peppers and some onions. The mushroom soup makes a big difference! Then I fold it over and let the cheese melt a little, serve with hot biscuits and OJ. PERFECTION!

Well, with Easter a little over a week away you can always color them. I love deviled eggs, I use mayonaisse, chopped up pickles and paprika. Yummy.

MMMM, that sounds good - I too have been Blessed with an egg bounty. Time for a visit from the kids, they need more protein!

Here are a couple of our old favorite recipes using eggs, from the Montezuma Amish Mennonite Cookbook. These ladies are truly Blessed with Creativity.

Lemon Sponge Custard 1-1/2 c sugar 6T butter 6T flour 4 eggs, separated juice of 1 lemon 1t grated lemon rind 2c milk

Cream sugar and butter in a bowl. Add the flour and mix well. Add beated egg yolks, lemon juice, grated rind and milk, mix well. Fold in beated egg whites, pour into greased/floured 8" square pan. Place in a pan of warm water to bake and bake at 325 degrees for 50 min to 1 hr. Invert onto serving plate. Serves 6 to 8. NOTE: We let it cool and eat it right from the pan if the family's here. If it's just us two, I've been known to use ramekins and put them in a shallow baking pan of water, then bake for 45-50min. That way, I can pack one in My Sweet Hubby's lunch bag for a special treat.

Grape-Nut Pudding 6T flour 12T Grape-Nuts 12T melted butter 3c sugar 6 egg yolks 3c milk 9t grated lemon rind 9T lemon juice 6 stiffly-beaten egg whites

Mix flour, Grape-Nuts, and melted butter. Add sugar, egg yolks and milk, lemon rind and lemon juice. Last of all add stiffly-beaten egg whites. Pour into butter-greased 2qt casserole and set in pan of water. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hr. If knife comes out rather clean, it is done. Serve cold. NOTE: I do this the same way as custard above in the ramekins for just us two.

Scalloped Pineapple (My Sweet Hubby's favorite winter treat) 3 eggs, well beaten 2c sugar 1-20oz can crushed pineapple, Undrained 4c 1" cubes fresh bread 1c butter, cut up

Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and mix well. Pour into butter-greased 13x9x2" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hr. Serves 10 to 12. NOTE: I have never been able to cut this in half. Somehow it comes out gooey. And ramekins didn't work for me either. But, it does freeze well!

Bread Pudding 4 eggs 1c brown sugar 3c milk 6 slices bread (I sometimes used cinnamon-raisin) 1c raisins (chopped figs, dates, or cranberries works too) Put raisins in bottom of 9x13" pan. Put bread on top of raisins. Beat eggs, brown sugar, and milk and pour over bread. Sprinkle nutmeg on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min. Serves 8 to 10 NOTE: I have used ramekins and put 1 slice of bread in each, then poured the mixture evenly over them.

Have a Bountiful Day in His Grace

The lemon one sounds especially good, I LOVE lemon!

Dang Melissa, looks like somebody done taught you how to cook regular food rather than that weird yankee stuff. Them omelettes of yours could even be loved by an old Texas cowboy like me. Just don't put no dang peanut butter in there, OK? And please, please, PLEASE, do not put a little chili sauce in your spaghetti and call it chili...that would be unforgivable. TK

Uh...forgot to post my egg recipe. Here it is, but I have to give my (thankfully) dearly departed ex-wife for this one. Don't miss her but man do i miss her DEVILED EGGS:

Boil eggs for 10 minutes, cool down, cut in half, remove yolks into bowl and mix with some chopped dill pickles and a little pickle juice, dash of garlic salt, dash of onion powder, 2 dashes of black pepper, and enough Miracle Whip (not mayo) to make the yolks good and creamy. Spoon into whites and top with some paprika. Hold the peanut butter. whole family misses them eggs...(but not her). TK

Melissa, here's one more for your egg collection.

This is from a book called "White Trash Cookin' by Ernest Matthew Mickler. Knew him before he got famous heheheh

Leeta's Fancy Eggs & Cheese Pie

4 eggs

1c chopped parsley

1c Swiss cheese grated

1/2t nutmeg

1/2pint whipping cream

1 unbaked 9inch pie shell

Mix eggs, cream, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Pour into pie shell that has been baked for 5 minutes at 400 degrees. Sprinkle in cheese and parsley and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees or until brown on top. (I have used homemade yogurt to sub for the whipping cream, or condensed milk) Makes an excellent light supper dish with a green salad and perhaps a big slice of red velvet cake (mmmmmmmm)

Wishing you a Peaceful Evening

After Easter, I always make Egg Salad Sandwiches. Take chopped boiled eggs, chopped pickles, grated onion to taste, some chopped celery, and mayo to moisten. In the summer, I also add chopped cucumbers. My favorite way to eat it is on homemade wheat bread for sandwiches served with onion rings.

Hello Melissa,

Pickle Eggs! That is what Melitza does with the extras that we do not sell, trade or give away. We have about five dozen now just waiting to "age" alittle before she begins canning them. She just canned five dozen the other day too. We let them sit in the juice for about a month until they are premeated with the vinegar and the pickling spices....mmmmm!
