READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Nana Lee

This ia listed as Polish appetizer on a site I found listing Old World Polish recipes. Certainly is easy to make, low carb, not too fattening, and quite tasty sounding.

Yes...it was all you said it would be. I've been told by my 7yo that I NEED to make this all summer! This was light & refreshing on a very hot day. Thanks Nana Lee for posting!

  1. Cut small firm tomatoes (with a slightly larger circumference than peeled hard-boiled eggs) in half.
  2. Cut 4 peeled hard-boiled eggs in half widthwise.
  3. From each tomato half, scoop out just enough pulp to make room for the egg half.
  4. Insert egg halves into tomatoes yolk side up.
  5. Place thinly sliced boiled ham on top of each other.
  6. Roll up starting at one of the narrow ends jelly-roll fashion, then slice into thin strips as you would egg noodles.
  7. Heap the ham strips on the egg-filled tomatoes.
  8. Place on lettuce-lined platter and top with dressing.
  9. OR: serve dressing in cup on platter as a choice.
  11. Fork-blend mayonnaise, prepared brown mustard, salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
