Egg Salad Sandwich
Confused as to what to do with all those darn hard boiled eggs that you all inevitably have from Easter? The obvious choice would be an egg salad. The not so obvious would be awesome Egg Salad….lucky for you I’m here to share my recipe….and it’s the awesome one.
Back in my younger years when I’d stay up past 10 pm, my brother was usually around. Come 1 or 2 am, he’d get hungry and make himself a snack. Sometimes it was PB&J, other times it would be straight up celery and on occasion, it would be a quick trip to McDonald’s. BUT, one Friday night, he made egg salad sandwiches.
At this point in my life, I hated egg salad because:
- it just seemed like a weird/disgusting concept to me
- the whole hard boiled egg smell wasn’t exactly pleasant
Well, have I got news for you. Egg salad is not disgusting!!!–that is when you make it correctly. That evening, my brother explained the science behind his recipe. (Ok, maybe not science)
Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe
Here’s the trick–brace yourselves–you need practically equal parts egg to salad (meaning all the crunchy vegetables you add in like celery and onions). That’s it!
Here’s what I use in my egg salad sandwiches:
- hard boiled eggs
- dill pickles
- salt and pepper
The softness of the eggs mixed with the crunchiness and tanginess of the onions and dill pickles is so perfect. Plus there’s always that fresh bite from celery and the wonderful fattiness from the mayonnaise. SO GOOD!!!
Life becomes a little brighter when you’re eating an egg salad sandwich (or egg salad with crackers!) that has a little crunch. I like a lot of things on crackers….especially egg salad.
Anyways, the moral of the story is to make this and fall in love with egg salad. It’s a good one. Printable recipe card is below, have a good day!
