French-Style Egg Salad

French-Style Egg Salad
Jane Bruce

I do love a good egg salad, but this time, I wanted to put a little twist on it. That's right: This egg salad has been French-ified. Frenchied? Frenched? Anyway, I thought the results were pretty darn good. Slather it on a baguette (obviously), top it with some arugula and chopped olives and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, and you'll be in egg salad heaven.

Place the eggs, saffron, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until well combined. With the machine running, stream in the oil slowly until an emulsion forms and the mixture thickens. Season with salt, to taste, and pulse once more.

French Shopping Tip

Ingredients like olive oil, shallots, mustard, cream, stock, and butter will help bring French flavors to your cooking.

French Cooking Tip

French cuisine is renowned for slow-cooked sauces, however a quick pan sauce will do just as well; after sautéing a piece of meat or fish, remove it from the pan, deglaze with brandy or wine, finish with a touch of butter or cream and voilà!
