Egg Salad Sandwich

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

I love egg salad. It's great when you don't have a lot of ingredients on hand. You can scale this down and just use mustard, mayo, salt, and pepper if you prefer. To prepare more quickly, I boil the eggs the night before. It's a quick 5 or 10 minute lunch with a little advance preparation. I like this with a nice sourdough bread, but you decide. I like to eat this open-faced. Recipe courtesy of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Comfort Food.

Very good. The capers are a nice addition. Left out the radishes and used a small red onion instead of the scallions since that was what I had. It certainly fixed our lunch!
Thanks for posting.
