My Egg Salad Sandwich

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

I've tried many variations of egg salad sandwiches over the years but I always return to my basic recipe as follows. Important to use the best ingredients. Try my posted Mayo' recipe. Egg salad sandwich made with store bought mayonnaise is really good but egg salad sandwich made with homemade mayonnaise is worthy of exaltation! I only add dill occasionally and *only* if it's fresh from our herb garden. *Warning*: contains raw egg. --Tasty-- does like a few black olives (chopped) stirred into her egg salad sandwich. I begrudgingly comply...;) Nothin' like indulging the little darlin'!

Holy jumpin' beans! This tasty, better then life itself, egg-salad can jump right into our bellies anytime it desires. This is the epitome of what I perceive to be an egg-salad sandwich. Homemade bread - lightly toasted to perfection, simple but elegant egg mixed with mayonnaise, and the various, but delicious dark olive bits sitting within the depths are magnificent. Used some Hellman's mayonnaise because - well we needed to eat. YUM! Thanks, CG! Love it!
