Downeast Lobster Roll

"That Maine-iac has me dreaming of my favorite summertime treat! Use any type of roll you like for this recipe. In the northeast the hotdog rolls are flat on the sides and split on the top. Hotdog rolls and fresh Kaiser rolls are what I usually grill for this sandwich. Enjoy!!"

    Very good, we added a little mustard wasabi dipping sauce to the mayo / lobster mix to give it a little kick! Served on hot grilled brat buns. Really good!

    Marvelous! I added a bit of minced onion and celery and served it with a croissant. I haven't had a lobster roll since I was a kid. We had it in our lunch sandwiches sometimes and we would groan and try to trade for something better, like bologna!! But now I'm all grown up and I love lobster. Very good, and the memories too. Thank you.

    This was very good. I fixed two (one for DH and I) and added minced celery and a little fresh minced chives. Grilled the rolls and we gobbled them up for lunch. Thank you for posting. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag game 2012.

    Delicious. Hey I lived in Aroostook County for 6 years when Loring AFB was still open. Anyway, I added celery to this too and a bit more mayo, and a tbsp of finely chopped up dill pickle. I took some pepperidge farm hot dog rolls that were split across the top and cut the sides off so they would look like the ones in Maine. Then I buttered and grilled the roll and both sides and filled it with the salad. Awesome.
