- 1⁄2 cup toasted sliced almonds
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 teaspoons curry powder (optional)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt

- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- Lightly grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan or baking sheet with edge.

- Beat egg yolks, adding a few tablespoons hot sauce, then beat egg yolk mixture into sauce.

- Pour into medium bowl and cool slightly.
- Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff but not dry. Gently fold into sauce. Spread mixture in prepared pan.
- Bake in a 375°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden and top feels firm.

- Starting with a 10 inch side, roll up both rectangles.
- Wrap separately with plastic film and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- (May be prepared 2 days ahead.)
- Cut into 1/2 inch slices.
Tastes very good...but the roulade dough was commented by several people to be too spongy. I would definitely make again, but I think I may use less eggs, or perhaps fold in fewer egg whites. Love the idea though, just what I was looking for.
Have made this a few times now and always a big hit. I add the curry powder but it doesn't make it too spicy, just even tastier. And one of the best things about it is that you can make it the day before. I'm always on the look-out for recipes that I can prepare ahead!
