I have been in love with Bon Appetit ever since last year when Gwyneth Paltrow was featured on the cover. I immediately subscribed and have made many recipes from Bon Appetit since then. Now I will be able to share them on my blog which is so exciting! By the way my favorite recipe from the Gwyneth Paltrow edition was the recipe for Grilled Chicken with Peach BBQ Sauce. I’ve made it multiple times and as soon as there are some good local peaches in season here I will certainly make as post about it!
In the new May 2012 magazine a recipe for Curried Egg Salad caught my eye. I had not made regular “old-fashioned” egg salad since I catered a friends baby shower a couple of years ago and the idea of adding curry made it sound like a perfect weekend brunch food. The recipe only called for 4 eggs and with the 2 hungry boys in my house I decided to double the recipe.
The only thing I changed was that I used Vegenaise instead of mayo. I know, don’t make fun of me, I used an egg-less vegan mayo in egg salad. I prefer the taste of it to regular mayo…that’s the only good reason I can give you! I also forgot the scallions so I had to leave those out.
