This is another recipe from my mother’s recipe collection. It’s a make-ahead concoction meant to be spread on English muffins and broiled. And it’s just…it’s just…

It’s divine.

And here’s what you need. Hard boiled eggs, shredded cheddar, fried bacon, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, and Worcestershire.

Sorry about the excessive bokeh. It happens sometimes.

Start by peeling all the eggs…

Then give ’em a rough chop. (Depending on your preference, you can chop them a little finer if you’d like; you’ll see why at the end.)

Throw the bacon on a cutting board, trying not to eat it all in the process…

Then chop it up into bits…trying not to eat it all in the process.

Throw the eggs in a bowl…

Then throw in the shredded cheddar.

I’ve been grating cheese in my food processor lately and I have to say, I’ve never been happier in my life.

Then comes the bacon and a cup of mayo.

Now hear this! if you don’t like mayonnaise, do not lose heart! It serves only as a binder! You will taste nothing but utter deliciousness when it’s all said and done.

A good, heaping tablespoon of Dijon.

Do not skip this ingredient or your life will spiral downward into a series of unfortunate events.

I’m not even kidding.

Next comes some garlic powder.

Do not skip this ingredient or your life will spiral downward into a series of unfortunate events.

You think I’m kidding, but I’m not.

Finally, two or three good dashes of Worcestershire sauce.

Again, don’t skip. Spiral. Unfortunate.

Stir the mixture slowly to combine all the ingredients.

You can make this the night before. Just cover it with plastic wrap and go on with your life.

And I may or may not have independently confirmed that this is actually a tremendously delicious egg salad that you can serve on wheat bread with a big leaf of Romaine lettuce.

Okay, when you’re ready, just spread the mixture on the top of an English muffin half.

News Flash! You can spread the English muffins the night before, too! Just cover them with plastic wrap and you’re good to go.

Throw the muffin halves on a cookie sheet, then broil them for about 3 to 4 minutes. I put the pan on a rack at least in the middle of the oven (or lower.) You want the cheese to melt and get hot and the muffin to slightly crisp before the top gets overly brown.

Try not to eat this before you broil it, by the way.

Sorry. I project a lot.

Oh, dear. Seriously.

Good things happened under the broiler.

Serve these to the people you love (that can include yourself, if applicable) when they’re on their way out the door. The Dijon absolutely makes these little numbers, but you can switch up the kind of cheese you use…and if you need a little spice in your life, throw in some cayenne pepper! They’ll start your day off just right.

Enjoy these! They’re yummy.

And thanks, Mom. I’m looking forward to your next visit.

(And don’t forget the binder okay?)
