Surprise Sandwich

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Trisha W

I was given this recipe by an older woman from OK, 30 years ago. It is always a hit with adults who spend time trying to figure out the ingredients as the chili sauce makes it look like it has some kind of ground meat in it, and they can see the eggs and vegetables. This is not particularly a kid-favorite - because of the vegies. Prep-time does not include boiling the eggs.

This dandy sandwich mixture was no surprise for me. I made a half recipe as DH is in Vienna & I loved it! All the ingredients work here & yield a tasty texture combo of cream & crunch. I made it as written except I am a cook who loves the use of Heinz Chili Sauce for the tangy taste it gives, so I did add a bit extra. I will be making this again to share w/DH & might even add some crisp bacon pieces. Yum! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)

  3. Butter one slice of bread, put mixture on the another, then put the two slices together to form a sandwich.
  4. Cut off crusts.
  5. Can cut into 3 finger sandwiches if serving at a pot-luck.
