Yesterday I whipped up several deviled eggs whilst making my trial run of Quickie Egg Tater Salad.
It all started when I was doing a shopping trip and got tempted by spying a container of Deviled Egg Potato Salad, but was shocked by the price .. over FIVE BUCKS for a little pint container! I love that stuff, but hate the time it takes and heating up the kitchen to boil potatoes for just a small amount. Then I remembered tinned potatoes! I found (even better!) tins of sliced cooked potatoes, HyVee brand.
(Side note: HyVee brand of so many items is really good quality stuff, and nearly always has only a minimum of ingredients, no HFCS, rarely any preservatives or questionable ingredients, and is much cheaper than brand name.)
Once home again, since I'd already boiled and set the eggs aside, I whipped up the deviled egg mix, with lots extra, opened the tin, drained it and diced the slices right in the tin. A quick dump n mix, and quick as flash, I had a reasonably sized bowl of Quickie Egg Tater Salad cooling in the icebox. (I love saying "icebox" instead of "fridge")

Now, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] shrijani, I am craving salmon/fish, and really really want to try this, especially SALMON BACON. The whole thing looks delightful.


ETA: In other news.. PONYTAIL !!!

Thank you, Megan!
This looks and sounds delicious, with a bit more of spice-of-your-choice, I'd say.
I'm going to ignore the crappy "cook in microwave" directions, because
FOR GAWDS SAKE WOMAN, THAT'S A VITA-MIX, YOU CAN HEAT IT UP RIGHT IN THE BLENDER!!!!

Ahem. Okay, so.. here's the recipe with my own editing.
Can you tell I'm excited about my Vita-Mix?


Ingredients:
1/2 head cauliflower
3 cups broth (vegetable, mushroom or chicken)
salt, to taste
2 slices bacon
2 tablespoons crumbled gorgonzola cheese

Directions:
1. Steam the cauliflower until very tender. (If you are British, just boil the hell out of it)
2. In the meantime, cook the bacon until crisp. (For microwave: blah blah screw microwave cooking). Finely mince cooked bacon. (PHOEEY, BAKE IT ON A BROILER SHEET 450 for 30 min)
3. Heat the broth in the microwave. (SKIP IF YOU HAVE A VITA-MIX and pour it in the blender)
4. Drain the cauliflower and add to blender. Pour in the broth, blend on high until smooth.
(BLEND THE VITA-MIX FOR ANOTHER COUPLE MINUTES AND YAY! HOT SOUP!!)
5. Season with salt (SPICE WOMAN SPICES!) to taste.
If the soup is too thick, you can add a bit more broth. (there is no too thick creamy soup)
5. Ladle soup into bowls, garnish with bacon and gorgonzola.
