I'm convinced it's possible to enjoy cruelty-free eggs ever since I vacationed at a small farmstead, when early Saturday morning I strolled to the hen house out back and gathered an abundance of eggs from clean straw beds, while the chickens roamed outside. I felt no guilt scooping the eggs up, which I surely would have, had I sensed I was taking something those hens weren't willing to part with. Sadly, I'm convinced that mass production of what animals are able to offer as gifts is another story.
3 extra large or jumbo eggs, hard-boiled and shelled
1/2 tablespoon grainy mustard
1-1/2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon curry powder
4 slices whole-wheat bread
handful sorrel leaves (lemony)
Mash the eggs, and mix in the grainy mustard, light mayonnaise, curry powder and pepper to taste.
Spread on two slices of the whole-wheat bread. Top with the sorrel, then the two remaining slices of bread.
