    Going to the MIL's for dinner and she already beat me to making the deviled eggs :tongue So I was wondering if anyone had better ideas to bring as a side that uses lots of eggs that would be better than her store bought deviled eggs. Cannot let her beat me.....HELP! :barnie

    I'd probably go with a good bread pudding, myself. Most everyone likes it, and it keeps well.

    This cake only uses 6 eggs, but it is kinda special and unique with the merangue layer baked on top of each of the cake layers.

    Grandma Thibodeau's Blitz Torte

    For the cake
    1/2 cup butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    4 egg yolk beaten
    5 tablespoons milk
    1 cup flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    For the merangue
    6 egg whites
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup nuts chopped fine
    For the custard filling:
    1 1/2 cups milk
    2 egg yolk beaten
    1/2 cup sugar
    3 tablespoons flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Preheat oven to 300°.
    Grease 2-8" cake pans. Line bottoms with parchment paper.
    Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks, milk, flour, baking powder, and vanilla. Mix well. Pour into cake pans.
    Beat egg whites stiff. Gradually beat in sugar and nuts. Spread on cake batter layers. Put into preheated oven.
    Bake 10 minutes @ 300°, turn oven temp up
    Bake 15 minutes @ 325°, turn oven temp up
    Bake 10 minutes @ 350°.
    Blend milk and egg yolks. Stir together sugar, flour and salt. Mix together in saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until thick. Add vanilla. Use as filling between cake layers. Remember to peel off the parchment paper when stacking the layers :)

    Make some gourmet deviled eggs - there are lots of recipes online, and you can use all kinds of neat stuff like diced avocados, bacon, etc. Make yours really special - Ha to the MIL!
