Masters Inspired Shrimp and Egg Salad

Shrimp and Egg Salad 3.jpg

When I think of the Masters I automatically think of pimento cheese and egg salad sandwiches on soft white bread wrapped in signature green plastic wrap. I do not know a thing about golf, but I do love to eat!! Thankfully this sought after event has corresponding cook books. I grew up perusing my mother’s cook book collection which included the first two of the Tea Time at the Master’s cook books. I loved the dog eared copies with my mother’s handwritten notes. She used a number scale to rate the recipes she liked and some even included in parentheses “Eddy Likes”, for recipes that my Daddy particularly loved. I received the last in the series ,Par 3, as a graduation gift. I loved the fun brunch recipes and new versions of old favorites. I wanted to create a fun blog recipe as a nod to the Masters. I knew I had to do a take on a classic and you can’t get more classic than egg salad. I added shrimp to a basic egg salad recipe and spiced it up a bit with sriracha. I also love the addition of dill. I hope this recipe garners a 10 rating in your arsenal of favorite recipes.
