A Wholesome Egg and Cucumber Baguette
|Wholesome Egg and Cucumber Baguette|
This wholesome egg and cucumber baguette is actually an inspiration from one of my favorite childhood party snacks.
Back then, one of the favourite snacks during the parties was skewered quill egg with cucumber. Which is actually a hard boiled quill egg sandwich between 2 slices of cucumber on a short bamboo skewer. For decorative purposes, a whole pineapple is used to hold a dozen or more skewers. It closely resembled a flower pot with white, yellow and green combo of flowers and leaves. There not only looked appealing, there tasted pretty good too as egg and cucumber is a match made in heaven.
Since quill eggs are high in cholesterol, I am going to feature a wholesome meal using egg instead.
These are the ingredients: A baguette, a hard-boiled egg, 1/4 of a cucumber (deseeded and diced to inch long size), 1 tbsp of honey mustard mayonnaise, some pepper to taste.
In a bowl, smash the hard-boiled egg using a folk. If you prefer chunkier texture, you may also dice the hard-boiled egg instead of smashing it by folk. Next, add in the diced cucumber, honey mustard mayonnaise, pepper and mix well.
Toast the baguette in oven for about 5-7 minutes. Use a bread knife to make a pouch on the baguette. Lastly, stuff in the egg, cucumber and mayo filling. That's it, a wholesome egg and cucumber baguette is done!
