A quick, easy and tasty meal. Egg salad whipped with boiled eggs and mayo spread between two slices of bread to make a sandwich!


Do I call it a breakfast sandwich or lunch or a dinner sandwich? Eh Well, it is good to have it at any meal, so why bother!

Egg salad sandwich is an easy to make, nutritious and tasty sandwich. Egg salad made with boiled eggs and mayo spread between two slices of bread to make a sandwich! If you are the spicy kind you might find this a little bland, as it has no spice factor.

I usually avoid having these at Café or Deli because they contain high amounts of fat, as the major component of the salad is Mayo. You can make a healthier yet tasty version at home by substituting light mayo and whole grain bread. You can also use just boiled egg whites for the salad but trust me it tastes better with the yolks!.

Look through your pantry for these ingredients to put together a quick sandwich.

Egg Salad Sandwich

Makes: 2 servings

Bread - 4 slices
Eggs - 3 – 4 Eggs
Mayo - 3 - 4 tbsps
Salt - to taste
Pepper - to taste
Chives - 1 tbsp chopped (Optional)
Celery - 1 tbsp finely chopped (Optional)

Boil eggs in water for about 15 minutes. When done, cool it and peel the shell.

Place the peeled eggs in a bowl. Mash the eggs with a fork. Do not make a paste! It has to be little lumpy.

Add mayo, chives, celery, salt and pepper to the mashed eggs and mix well to make the salad. If the egg salad is too thick, you can add a little extra mayo to loosen it up. Taste it to make sure salt and pepper are correct.

A few ingredients you can add to the egg salad for a different flavor are mustard, parsley, bacon or any thing of your choice.

Chill the salad in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes.

Divide the mixture into two portions to make two sandwiches. Spread each portion between two slices of bread and bite!!!!!
