Thousand Island Dressing

Boiling the egg is what takes the most time, and the taste is worth every moment waiting for it to cook.

1   Egg/sRoom temperature
¼ cup Pickles, SweetDiced very small, almost minced
½ cup Mayonnaise
2 tbsp Ketchup


1 Fill a small pot with water deep enough so that the egg can be immersed. Bring the water to boil over high heat.
2 When the water comes to a boil, place the egg in the boiling water and boil for nine minutes. You can do this separately from the rest of the preparation. Sometimes I do this in the midst of lunch prep or clean-up; completing the recipe later is then simple and quick.
3 Peel the shell off the egg.
4 Place the boiled egg in a bowl about the size of a cereal or soup bowl. With the tines of a fork, cut through the egg until the white and yolk are crumbled and evenly distributed.
5 Add the chopped pickle, mayonnaise, and ketchup, in that order.
6 Mix the ingredients together, and it's all done.
7 You can vary the proportions to your preferences. For example, we use less ketchup when we're using this for a grilled Reuben sandwich than when we're using it for a salad.
