      Simple and delicious! I used an oat and bran bread and chose not to toast it as a personal preference, otherwise made as written with the exception of skipping the extra mayo on the bread before assembling. It's a wonderful take on an egg salad sandwich with a delicious combination of flavors that compliment each other well. Thank you for sharing this keeper! :)

      I made the egg salad last night, (a lovely blend of flavours) then I halved the recipe and added the egg salad and avocado to fresh rolls, untoasted. This made for a very quick-to-prepare lunch two for today. Love anything with avocado, and this was really delicious. I’ll be making this (in a roll) for take-to-work lunches during the summer. Thanks for sharing!

      anyone thought of maybe mashing the avacado and mixing it with the egg, mustard and mayo? Just a thought, I know how slippery avacado can be in a sandwich. lol
