Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups chow mein noodles
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • EGG SALAD:
  • 6 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Lettuce leaves, optional

Directions

  • In a small bowl, beat egg. Add chow mein noodles and garlic salt; stir to coat. Drop by 1/3 cupfuls onto a greased baking sheet. Using fingers, shape each into a nest; make an indentation in the center of each. Bake at 350° for 11-13 minutes or until set. Cool for 2 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
