    Skipper/Sy's Note:

    One of my mother's favorite dishes was chopped string beans and hard boiled eggs with a little mayonnaise However, I have enhanced this RSC #15 recipe by adding some caramelized onions and roasted garlic. For a nice visual presentation, I have also added on top of this dish a funny-faced hard boiled egg named "Eggie" which always "Cracks Me Up!"

      I had to try this because it sounded so strange and I'm glad I did. I didn't make the little faces but followed the directions using the cream cheese option. It was enjoyed by all of us. Thank you for sharing and good luck in the contest.

      These were actually fun to make, and I loved making the little faces, they were so cute! Too bad I had to eat them. :P I loved the addition of the caramelized onion and thought it went well with the roasted garlic (to be honest I've always liked garlic and onion together, but caramelizing the onion as opposed to just leaving it raw or anything else worked out well for the recipe).
