Simple Egg Salad Sandwiches

[ 0 ] May 14, 2009 |

6 hard-boiled eggs (*Peeled and finely chopped)

3 tbsp. light mayonnaise

1 tbsp. Dijon mustard

1 tbsp. relish

Pepper (to taste)

6 slices of multi grain bread

Mix together the eggs and mayonnaise (1 tbsp. at a time); then add in the mustard, relish and pepper and combine. Spoon egg salad mixture onto the bread and serve.

*Johnna’s tip: We have been craving an egg salad sandwich the past couple of days which inspired this recipe today. Egg salad sandwiches are the most common of the sandwich family and found at every local deli alongside the turkey and ham select sandwiches. We posted this because as people begin to eat more at home it’s good to have recipes on hand that are quick, simple and can be made with things you already have in your pantry. Most people keep eggs in the fridge and spreads such as mayo and mustard (*Mustard does not have to be Dijon…), so half the battle is won in making an egg salad sandwich. Try with a side of potato chips and a pickle…do it real deli style.
