Nothing fancy here but it worked to make a sandwich a little different from the usual egg sandwich to put in lunches. The original version came from a recipe leaflet that came from the local electric company about 30 years ago. It called for using process cheese and no dressing and chopping everything together in a food chopper(gotta use more electricity for the electric company!) but I prefer the cheddar, doing the prep by hand and usually use Miracle Whip to bind it together as I like it rather than mashing it all together in a food chopper.
- 6 -8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded or grated
- 4 large eggs, hard-cooked and chopped or mashed
- 1⁄2 cup chopped sweet pickle, your favourite kind
- 3 -4 tablespoons minced sweet onions or 3 -4 tablespoons green onions
- 1 -2 sprig parsley, snipped or chopped
- 2 dashes pepper (optional)
- 1⁄3 cup salad dressing or 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise, or amount as desired
- Blend all ingredients together in a small bowl using enough dressing or mayo to bind together as you like it. Use to fill sandwiches. Great with rolls or whole grain bread. Makes about 2 to 2 1/2 cups filling. Average about 6 sandwiches depending on bread used and how generously you fill them.
This filling makes lovely sandwiches! I made this so I could have sandwiches to take to the lab with me for a week, so I can say that it keeps very well in the refrigerator for at least a week. Thanks for the recipe!
