New York restaurant group Union Square Hospitality, which includes Union Square restaurant, Gramercy Tavern, Eleven Madison Park, Tabla, and The Modern, raised money for City Harvest by donating a portion of chicken entrees to the hunger organization. Now they're doing the same thing with eggs. If I owned a restaurant, there'd be an egg dish on the menu every day.

The one here is made by tossing salad greens with a lemony vinaigrette, hard-cooking eggs, and setting two halves around the edges of each plate. Season mayonnaise (commercial is fine) with Dijon mustard, a splash of white wine vinegar, and a few drops of hot water until it is the consistency of thick cream. Spoon the mayonnaise over the eggs.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
