a simple CrockPot English Pea Salad for 2 or more People...

I am not a fan of several veggies, English peas just happens to be one of them. I love them in soup because they are like some family members, they are surrounded by delicious ingredients and they make the not so bad green pea not so bad to be around. Garrett, however, loves English Pea Salad and I found a simple way to make it and it can feed 2 people to 100 people using 2 buffet CrockPots and 6 hours to do it in. Also, using the CrockPot sisters keeps the kitchen cool on a hot summer day.

In one 2.5 quart buffet CrockPot, put 1 cup of frozen green English peas for two people you plan to serve. Cover with water and cook on warm for 6 hours. If you need more servings than this buffet CrockPot will hold, move it to a larger CrockPot (a tip for this method at the end).

In the other 2.5 quart buffet CrockPot, put 1 egg for every cup of green English peas you are preparing in the other CrockPot. Add 1 teaspoon salt and 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice (to keep the shells from cracking). Cover with water and cook on warm for 6 hours. I use an egg timer that goes into the water with the eggs to let me know when they are done.

When cooked, turn both crockpots off and allow them to cool down for 1 hours. Drain the English peas well. Remove the boiled eggs from the CrockPot, peel and cut up finely into a mixing bowl.  Add the English peas, 2 Tablespoons of mayo, 1 dash of pepper sauce (optional since Garrett doesn't like it that way), pepper/salt/Ms Dash Tomato/Basil/Garlic blend and a dash of dill (totally love dill with any recipe that calls for eggs).  Mix well. Place in the fridge till ready to serve.

If you use the larger CrockPot to cook the peas, boil the eggs over night and then cook the peas afterwards, both will be ready for supper that night.

I boil eggs in the CrockPot all the time, at least a dozen to have on hand to eat individually or use in salads.  I can't peel them worth a flip regardless how I try so I don't make devil eggs often. However, egg salad is great for a hot day.
