Old Fashion Fruit Salad

   Today's salad recipe is one my mother got from her Aunt.  It calls for 2 eggs and real whip cream so I know its rich.  But hey in the summer calories don't count in a salad right.  Oh yeah, and about the whole egg thing... you don't tell my doctor and I wont tell yours.  It will be our little secret right.

Old Fashion Fruit Salad


2 well beaten eggs
½ cup sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 cup whipped heavy cream
1 can fruit cocktail
2 cups miniature marshmallows
Pecans is desired

   Combine eggs, sugar and lemon juice in a double boiler.  Cook until slightly thick and sugar is melted.  Remove pan from heat and sit aside to cool.
   When egg mixture is cooled, fold in remaining ingredients.  Chill 5 to 6 hours or overnight.
