Best Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe
When I asked Dan what he wanted for lunch he surprised me by asking for an egg salad sandwich. Maybe that was because he's seen me scrolling thru hundreds (thousands?) of Easter pins on Pinterest?
Maybe it is because he wanted normal food? (This happens sometimes in our house 😁) Maybe he was just in the mood for great egg salad sandwich?
When we were kids my folks bought a little home in the country. We had 2 ½ acres and the first thing we got were chickens.
Dad converted the old barn into a place for the chickens to roost and every morning my brother or I would feed the chickens and collect eggs.
I did not like chickens. When we were kids I was attacked by a rooster. It grabbed ahold of my sock and ripped a big hole in it! (True story!) I hated that chicken and I wasn't sad when Dad butchered that chicken.
Anyway, Dan and I were talking about egg salad and here are some of the reasons we love it.
- Great comfort food.
- It reminds us of picnics and a slower time.
- Creamy and delicious.
- Eggs are super affordable!
Conclusion? Eggs are darn near perfect food!
Easter is right around the corner and soon you'll have an excess of boiled eggs, right?!! So if you have some eggs to use up, this recipe is a great option. If you don't, eggs are on sale right now. It's a great time to buy and make this egg salad sandwich recipe!
Let's face it, an egg salad sandwich can be pretty boring. It is often under salted and without any fresh ingredients, can really become a yellow dense globby mess.
