So I think I have finally come out of my sugar coma that took place last Sunday on Easter. This always happens to me, I get so excited for all the candy and sweet treats around the holidays, that I over indulge and end up paying for it later! Maybe it is because I hardly have any candy or sweet treats when it is not a holiday. Oh well, maybe I will learn my lesson, one day.
Still have hard boiled eggs left over from Easter? I know I do, maybe its because we dyed 3 dozen! It was a lot of fun, but I have been eating hard boiled eggs all week and I feel like I haven’t even made a dent in my stash of 1 1/2 dozen eggs. So I decided to get rid of them once and for all, with a good ole egg salad sandwich recipe. Everyone makes theirs a little different, but my recipe is pretty basic with good flavor.
Egg Salad Sandwich
6 hard boiled eggs
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1-2 teaspoons Stone Ground mustard
1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
2-3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions or parsley
Paprika to taste (sprinkle on top of egg mixture after you assemble sandwich)
1 teaspoon of Frontera chipolte sauce (optional, Mr. Pea likes things spicy and adds it to his egg salad sandwich)
Boil 6 eggs, remove shells. Chop up using a potato masher or I just use a fork.
In a medium bowl, stir the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and green onions OR parsley (and chipolte sauce, if you like yours spicy like Mr. Pea). Then take the eggs and fold them into the mayonnaise mixture. Store in airtight container until ready to use. I like my egg salad cold when using it for a sandwich but if you like it room temperature that is fine too. To assemble the sandwich, I toast the bread in a toaster oven and place Swiss cheese on one side ( you can use any cheese, but swiss is my favorite). When cheese is melted and the bread is toasted remove from toaster oven and place the egg salad on the side without the cheese. Then sprinkle paprika over the egg salad mixture and top with a tomato and slice in half. And that’s it, it is delicious and all your hard boiled eggs are gone!
