The Egg and I

Hey, everyone... I surely hope your week is going great. 
Things are moving right along here at SWEET NOTHINGS.
No matter how busy we get...
we still......GOTTA EAT.

When I saw these
that my bloggy friend, MARCI, at
whipped up for her crew,
I went into
Deviled Egg Hissy Fit.....
* * *
Her recipe:
6 Hard Boiled Eggs
1/2 cup Chopped Bacon, plus a little more to sprinkle on top
1/2 cup Ranch Salad Dressing

Slice eggs in half.  Pop out the yolks.  Mash them with the Ranch Dressing and bacon bits.  Scoop the yolk mixture back into the egg whites.
* * *
Well, I made them and ate them all before I even THOUGHT of a camera...

SOOO, I had to make them again....
AGAIN with a SPIN.

Altho I am officially a "NON- EGG- LIKER", one of my favorite foods .....DEVILED EGGS.

And, I like them DRESSED TO THE HILT

Since we are on a 
"watch what we eat" routine AGAIN,
I used Low Fat Ranch and just enuf to hold the filling together to go back into the white.

I had only 3 boiled eggs...
chopped 98% free HAM
Fat free shredded cheese
and we LUV freshly ground BLACK PEPPER and LOTS of it.

We had a great big bowl of fresh fruit and WALNUTS....

All this talk of EGGS reminds me of a

This is the cutest, olden movie, ever.
I haven't seen it in ages....but it was cute back then. :)

It was filmed in 1947...
I was 10 yrs old....OH DEAR....:)

If you like an old, really funny movie, WALMART has this one for $2.95.
Cheap enuf, hu?

Your egg recipes sound delicious. Look that way too. I have the movie The Egg And I and also love it. It is based on a true story that took place on the Olympic Peninsula here in Washington state. I have been there and found the road that the egg farm was on is called The Egg And I Road. Fun.

Love deviled eggs ... will have to try your way of fixing them.

Those yummy eggs and the bowl of fruit is a meal in itself! I could feast on that, bj!

Maureen said...

I remember our whole family watching The Egg And I. We loved it! And, I'm an eggaholic so to these recipes are right up my alley.

Jeane M. said...

My the sight of these egg-licious recipe makes me crave to have this for dinner. Definitely adding this on this weeks menu. Got my eye on your next posts.

susie @ persimmon moon cottage said...

Those egg recipes look delicious. It is almost 3:30 AM here, and you've got me seriously craving deviled eggs. Well I know what I am having for lunch tomorrow! I have loved The Egg and I movie for years. I was the only person that I knew who even knew about it or remembered it until now. I liked the kitchen and the old stove that they had. One of my favorite characters in the movie is Ma Kettle. Remember Ma's housekeeping (especially her closets)? My closets are Ma Kettle inspired. I found Mountain Mama's comment interesting. I had no idea there was a road by the name of The Egg and I Road. I always learn something new from blog reading.

Your eggs sound mighty tasty BJ-enjoy:@)

Theresa said...

YUM! I love deviled eggs and so does my Granddaughter Alex:) My Aunt makes really good ones and I always request that she brings them to family gatherings:) Have a blessed day dear BJ, BIG HUGS!

Beverly said...

Yum. We loved deviled eggs, too. I forwarded your blog post to my son. He uses ranch in his eggs - and the guy loves bacon. This looks right up his alley.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

They do look good!!!!

You are back in "watch what you eat land" again, hu? Betcha' somebody had a doc check-up and ..... Well.... You know.....

I tell ya', I really wondered about your dinner of a Taste Freeze concoction, the other day. -evil grin-

When we were in FL for 3 months, once a week, we had a dinner of a huge ice cream sundae. !!!!!! Hmmmm, no wonder my heart arteries clogged up, hu? We forget those "little things here" and "Little things there." -sigh-


Peggy Jones said...

Oh BJ the eggs are so delightful looking. We always have them at family meals but I just might do some today. Have a great week-end dear sista.

Madeline's Album said...

The deviled eggs really do look good. Saw that movie the Egg and I years ago. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Diane said...

Love it... so simple with the dressing but a little different with bacon.

Patty Patterson said...

I haven't had a deviled egg in forever! No one really eats them here, so I don't prepare them, but those look delicious!

Rian said...

We also like deviled eggs, but hardly ever make them... unless it's for an occasion. Have to remedy that.

And I've never heard of "The Egg and I", but will now keep an eye out for it. Thanks

Your version of the deviled eggs looks delish! We seem to make them a lot in the spring and I love trying different ways. Thanks!


Vee said...

You come up with the most interesting "watching your diet" meals. You could write a book! This looks totally yummy to me. I'm going to put the eggs on to boil now.

Kelly_Deal said...

Oh yummy! Your eggs look delish!

Shirley said...

Hi Bj. It is a good thing I had breakfast when I read your blog or I would be wanting deviled eggs for sure. They look so yummy and I like your spin that you gave them. Fresh fruit, yummy, I try to include it in what I eat. Hope all is well and I know you will enjoy your new home once the move is complete. It is the packing that gets you. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri friend.

Christi said...

Oh my goodness- these look amazing, my hubby would LOVE these! I found your blog through Showcase your talent link party and I'm a new follower!!


mail4rosey said...

If you made them and ate them w/o taking pictures, OF COURSE you had to re-do them (wink wink) and I for one thank you, really. These look delicious and would be a huge hit for my fam!

I'm visiting you today from Katherine's (Thursday's Favorite Things).

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

These look so good...and I love how you smothered them in cracked pepper - mmm look so tasty!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

I also love deviled eggs - I make one with crab meat in them and they are soooooooo good too. I am going to try your recipe.

Don't work to hard moving - rest.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Linda said...

I have read that book MANY times! It served as the inspiration for the Ma and Pa Kettle books/series. I loved the part where Ma took out her big bouncy brown beauties (bread loaves) from the oven and the poor gathered her puny little loaves to her breast and hurried home!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

We are also fresh ground pepper lovers and crazy about deviled eggs. I must try the ranch dressing..
Yours I have done, and they are fantastic! Only problem is...I did it without the low cal and low fat ingredients. And actully, we need to get back on that "careful" band wagon again too.

Jeanne said...

Hi bj, I feel exactly the same as you about eggs but I LOVE deviled eggs 'so much.' Your post today is not only good enough to eat, it is brilliantly presented. Girl, you know how to do the 'bestest' things on a computer. So impressive just like your everything deviled eggs. Beverly and I are always saying your posts are the BEST of all and the most yummy. We mean it!!! Smile.

Love you dearly sister friend. I mean that too.
PS: Busy week but I am hoping to mail your little gift tomorrow.

Debbie said...

I loved deviled eggs so this looks delicious to me.

And that movie happens to be a family favorite! My sister owns the video version, but we don't have it on DVD.

Fred MacMurray is one of my all time favorite actors.

I love deviled eggs and these sound like a fun twist. I will be pinning to try sometime. I'm not sure if I have ever seen that movie. Old movies are the best. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
