Use this as a guide to make as many sandwiches as you like. I know many people know how to make this easy sandwich but this is a lot how my great grandmother made them and oddly enough the lettuce seems to really make it taste better, especially not just putting it on top of your sandwich. Anyways a new cook may not know this easy meal yet and I didn't see one exactly like this in the database.
- 2 hard-boiled eggs
- 1 teaspoon minced onion
- 1⁄8 teaspoon celery seed
- 1⁄8 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄4 cup shredded lettuce
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I like Helmans)
- 2 slices bread
- 1 dash salt and pepper
- Finely chop hard boiled eggs with a pastry blender or knife and fork.
- add onion, celery seed, dijon, mayo, and lettuce and mix well.
- butter each slice of bread, top with egg mixture, sprinkle with salt and pepper, seal sandwich and eat.
This is a good basic recipe for egg salad. I usually add chopped celery, but just used the celery seeds this time. Yum. I had just made Green Olive Spread and so added this to the sandwich. Wonderful! Thanks for a surefire recipe!
Thanks Tara - I made these sandwiches yesterday to take to my team tennis match and they were gobbled up quickly. Everyone told me they were great :-) Luckily I saved one for myself at home or I wouldn't have gotten one. The celery seed really makes the difference!
This was my first taste of egg salad and i loved it!Even my son who hates onions liked it, and i did add the onion. I used regular mustard, and miracle whip enstead of mayo.I will for sure be making this again!
