      This is a great recipe. We went to the orchard on Saturday and this is what we brought for our lunches. That was perfect since DS can't bring egg salad sandwiches at school because of 1 kid has egg allergy. It was so yummy. He ate all his sandwich. Thanks Psalm :) Made for PAC Fall 2011

      Fantastic! I made these poetical egg salad tea sandwiches today for luncheon, and they were enjoyed immensely. Made the butter with fresh mint from my herb garden, which added a very lovely accent to these delectable sammies. Highly recommended! I would like to add that I very much enjoyed looking through your lovely Anne of Green Gables Cookbook, as I too am an Anne of Green Gables fan! Made for the Magic of Herbs Event in the Photos Forum. Thank you, Psalm!

      These were really good but I did find them on the soft boiled side. I think the parsley was a nice touch to the egg salad sandwich.
