Salted Egg-Mayonnaise Sandwich Spread

My friend Alice is a career woman, she's been working a good part of her life. She started working when she was in college and has not stopped since. She claims she doesnt cook so her everyday routine is to order out or eat in the restaurants around her office location which fortunately is located a few meters away from the restaurant row of Quezon City. But surprisingly for someone who doesnt cook or so she says, she has a good sense of flavor combinations. Case in point, this sandwich spread which she concocted. "It's so easy even I could do it!" she told me proudly. And yes, it's very easy and really very good and flavorful.

Salted eggs can be made from duck's eggs or chicken eggs, they are dipped in a mixture of clay, table salt and water which has the consistency of clay and then wrapped in newspapers and stored in boxes at room temperature and cured for 12-14 days. They are then cleaned and boiled over low heat for 30 minutes. Salted eggs are readily available in most food stores in the Philippines and is a favorite breakfast item.

Salted Egg-Mayonnaise Sandwich Spread
3 salted eggs
1 cup mayonnaise

Peel and Mash salted eggs, mix with mayonnaise. Taste can be adjusted by adding more mayonnaise or lessening it. I added a little bit of Cayenne Pepper for an extra kick, you can be experimental with other spices as well, no need to add salt-the eggs are very salty. Enjoy!

This sounds good! This also reminds me of the salad dressing my friend use to make. He gave me the recipe but lost it=;( all i remembered, it called for itlog maalat, condensed milk, not sure if it called for mayo or sour cream. It was a weird combination but really good w/ green salad.
