Oh Boy Oh Boy I have another delicious recipe to share. I made this one the other night per a request from a friend who was here visiting from New York.
My friend Laura and her hubby both had Bariatric Surgery this year and this is a favorite recipe of theirs. The only problem is that it makes so much and if they made it for themselves it would be very hard for them to finish – so she asked if I would make it when they came and so I did. I had no idea what it would be like and it turned out to be so tasty and everyone, even the kids liked it.
Now let me say that normally it should look all pretty and made in a clear trifle bowl for effect, but mine seemed a bit too small to hold all the ingredients. Oh well – u know what layers in a clear bowl would look like right? ok good, so no biggy.
Ok so here are all the ingredients you need to create this:
- A Head of Lettuce (Iceburg is just fine) Chopped up
- 1 Cup of Chopped Celery
- 4 Hard Boiled Eggs, Chopped
- 1 Box Frozen Peas, Defrosted
- 1/2 Cup Green Pepper, Chopped
- 1 Small Red Onion, Choopped
- 8 (or more – more is best) of Cooked Bacon, Chopped or Crumbled
- 2 Cups of Mayo + 2 Tbsp Sugar – Mixed Well
- 8 ounces of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Can Black Olives, Whole, Sliced or Chopped (u decide)
Then in a large trifle bowl or big bowl just layer all your ingredients starting with the lettuce first and work your way down the list. When you are ready to eat just grab a big serving spoon and grab all the way to the bottom to get a little of everything.
I am tellin’ ya this was soooo good and honestly completely fool proof. You can add or remove items you do not like too. Oh and this is a great recipe to bring to a BBQ or Picnic.
My hubby who is not a fan of Celery even ate it and loved it and the crazy thing is that later that night he ate the leftovers and finished it off – I was in complete shock.
