The Devil's Breakfast Special

If you like devilled eggs, try the ones at Nielsen's Delicatessen at 4500 Richmond. Mayo connoisseurs have been known to drive across town to get the famous house-made mayonnaise there. And that extra-rich, fresh-made mayonnaise is what makes the egg salad sandwich at Nielsen's taste so good. At $6.60, the egg salad sandwich is a little too pricey for breakfast. So instead, I buy two devilled eggs at 75 cents each and a slice of buttered rye bread -- it tastes just like a half an egg salad sandwich, if you ask me. And with tax, this awesome devilled egg breakfast comes to $1.86.
The mayonnaise sells for $6.25 a pint.
