My mother used to make egg, bacon and mayo sandwiches for me when I started my first job. This kind of reminds me of those long ago days. I can't wait to try it. Thank you!

Good egg salad. I halved the recipe and cut down the horseradish to 1 tablespoon, but when I make it again, I'll add a little more. Love the "zing" it adds! Omitted the caraway seeds as I don't care for them. Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.

This is a fantastic, flavorful egg salad. I scaled the recipe down, and since I happened to be out of fresh parsley, just skipped it as garnish. I ate mine with crackers and my husband ate his on pumpernickel--we both just loved it! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
