#105 Incredible Edible Egg Salad on Croissants and an Award!!

How do you tell if an egg is raw or cooked?
Spin it!! If the liquids have set into a solid, a hard-cooked egg will easily spin. If it is raw, the moving liquids will cause it to wobble.... isn't that interesting?
Egg Salad is simple and easy to make but Ranch Dressing from a package adds a twist to my plain egg salad and in between two flaky halves of a croissant it is even better!! This is just a purely heavenly sandwich. A word of warning --make sure to make a pile of them because I don't think anyone can eat one half of this sandwich without going back for more. It can be ADDICTIVE. A sandwich for a Princess!!

Yes, those little 'tags' say Princess N. They are special treats I made for my first born N's surprise
birthday party...I must mention that my princess is a fully grown adult -- but I wanted her to have a royal B'day!! LOL

Hard cooked eggs- 12
Mayyonnaise- 1 cup
Chopped shallots- 1 Tblspn
Chopped Green onions- 1 Tblspn
Chopped Celery- 1 Tblspn
Ranch dressing package(dry)-1 packet
Black pepper and salt to taste.

1. Mix well all of the ingredients besides the eggs and croissants.
2. Chop the eggs into very small pieces and toss gently into the prepared dressing.
3. Slice the Croissants across into half and apply a generous portion of egg salad on the bottom half.
4. Place the top half over the salad and slice into two sandwiches. Hold together with toothpicks.
