A nice fruit salad with whipping cream, that compliments any holiday meal. Needs to be made the day before, which leaves more time to attend to the rest of the meal. It was a traditional dish my Grandparents and Parents would serve with a roasted turkey, however, I make it more frequently as leftovers make a nice dish for work or school.

Nutrition
  • 1 egg (beaten)

Directions

  1. Mix well-egg, lemon juice, and sugar.
  2. Cook until thick. I usually microwave, in short 15 second intervals until thick.
