Dressing Anyone?

Okay, so I know I said I rarely exit the realm of dessert but when I came up with this recipe, I really felt the need to share. I made it for my family and I for the first time yesterday and it was AWESOME!!! So I will call this "Awesome Dressing" and it has many universal uses. This dressing is sadly not for anyone with an egg allergy, sensitivity, intolerance or egg free diet for any other reason as it contains Egg Yolk. Now if your problem is only with egg white, you could probably still partake of this seriously amazing sauce. It came to me one day while eating hard boiled eggs after a failed attempt to make Mustard. News flash.... Ground Mustard Powder and Water to make a paste of Mustard consistency is NOT for the faint of heart. However my Dressing/Sauce is universal, very customizable and delicious as all get out, so it can be enjoyed by many people. It doesn't take long to prepare, it's simple and it is versatile enough to be used in a multitude of ways.

This picture doesn't display it's deliciousness as well as I'd like but it gives you an idea of what it looks like.
Awesome Dressing:

5 Hard Boiled Eggs
5 Tablespoons Water
3 Tablespoons Walnut Oil or Oil of choice but this may change the end texture if you use a solid oil.
1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/8 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
1/8 Teaspoon Onion Powder
1/8 Teaspoon Ground Mustard

Hard boil 5 very large Eggs, Jumbo if possible or maybe 7 Large Eggs. Let cool but do not allow to sit any longer than 1 hour or they will get rubbery. Remove shells and slice the Egg Whites open to remove the Egg Yolks. Reserve the cooked whites for snacking or whatever other use you can think of, I'll suggest one towards the end of this. Place the Egg Yolks in a shallow bowl and mash them with a fork, add 3 Tablespoons of Water, mixing until creamy. Put in all the seasonings and mix thoroughly. Vigorously mix in the walnut oil and then add the remaining 2 Tablespoons water and mix until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes and Suggestions:
If you cannot think of anything to do with the Egg Whites or you just really miss Egg Salad, you could easily chop the Egg Whites and mix with just enough Sauce to make Dairy Free, Mayo Free, Non-Processed, Healthy Egg Salad! You could also leave out 3 Tablespoons Water and 2 Tablespoons Oil and you'd wind up with a thicker result that you could fill the Egg Whites with, like "Deviled Eggs" without Mayo. This Dressing as is goes great over Salads, Braised Romaine Hearts or other greens. If you left out 2 Tablespoons Water and 2 Tablespoons Oil, it might make a lovely Dip for chips or crackers. You can use the dressing as is for a mayo replacement on sandwiches or rolls among many other things. With a little tweaking this could easily be turned into a simple "Hollandaise Like Sauce" - You can also feel free to change up the seasonings and spices to customize this to suit any taste or occasion, it can be made a million ways and I bet tons of them are yummy!

If you make this recipe, please feel free to comment and let me know how it turned out and/or what adjustments you made to it.
