“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!"”
