I was a little unsure about adding Old Bay to an egg sandwich. There was no need to worry. It's just a light touch and adds a depth of flavor. I really enjoyed the shallot and relish, too! Yum.

This is a nice recipe. To chop my eggs, I slice them once in the egg slicer, then turn them 90 degrees and chop them again. Works like a charm! I ate mine as a snack with reduced-fat Triscuit crackers, so I have enough for another snack tomorrow! Thanks! Made for the "I Recommend" tag game.

I find egg salad very filling, so for me this was enough for two sandwiches. I used dill relish in place of the sweet. I like having a recipe that I can make just for myself. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.
