My five year old daughter, Anya, is our fearless eater. She loves trying new things and lives by the "one bite" rule. She will take at least one bite of anything to see if she likes it. When she was 2 1/2 she would eat calamari and call it noodles. Her favorite all time food is crab legs and this is her requested "special dinner". She even likes to try combinations of things that we would all think was gross. Her most infamous combination was a frosted donut with peas for sprinkles. :) She says she wants to be a chef and open her own restaurant when she is older (in addition to being a ballerina and an astronaut), so I guess she is just working on her palate!
It didn't disappoint and is incredibly delicious. It tastes exactly like a deviled egg but with the yummy addition of elbow noodles.
Recipe from Cassie Craves
1 pound elbow macaroni
3 cups Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 teaspoon white vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup dill pickle relish (depending on how pickle-y you like it)
1. Cook pasta according to directions on box; drain. Rinse in cold water and drain again.
2. While pasta is cooking, whisk together Miracle Whip, mustard, vinegar, and salt and pepper.
3. Gently fold pasta, eggs, and relish into the sauce. Taste for seasoning; re-season as necessary. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover and refrigerate until serving (it’s best the next day).
