Egg Salad

 

After Easter Egg Salad Sandwiches

Now, I'm addicted to my egg salad sandwiches every year after Easter!

They are SO easy to make. 

I just peel two hard boiled (Easter) eggs and plop them in a small bowl.
Add a squirt of your favorite mustard.
Add a half spoonful of pickle relish.
Add a splot of mayonnaise or similar product.
Smoosh together well with a fork.
Meanwhile, toast two pieces of bread.
Plop the egg salad mixture on the toast.
Top with green leafy good-for-you stuff.
Top with tasty not-so-good-for-you bacon.
Take a bit!

PS. Also good with sliced tomatoes!

Egg Salad Sandwich Wrap

So I love home made egg salad!  I just smoosh up two hard boiled eggs with some mayo (or substitute), pickle relish, and mustard.  I decided to get creative this time and instead of just putting it between two pieces of toast, I put it on a healthy wrap with some grape tomatoes and spinach leaves.

Am I making you hungry yet?

I added some baked Ruffles chips (120 calories) and my calorie count for the entire meal was 444 (324 for wrap).  I felt it was a bit high for a meal and I feel stuffed, but everyone keeps telling me to eat more.  I think I should have tried just one egg for less calories.  Of course, carrots or other fresh veggies for a side would have been less calories too, but I have to have my "love" food sometime.

Egg Share EggsPlosion!

Who would have thought that me craving egg salad sandwiches would have influenced so many others to crack the egg! How funny is the power of suggestion!

Danzinst left this suggestion in the comments and I'm gonna have to try it!

"I learned this tip from a chef years ago when boiling eggs. I let them boil for 8 minutes,immediately put them in cold water and crack every one all over while they are still in the cold water. 5 minutes later the shells just slide off. This had worked for me for years. Of course if you are going to do Easter Eggs don't crack them, lol!"

This just calls for an Egg Share EggsPlosion!

Go ahead, leave a comment below to share about your eggs.

Here are photos of my egg salad sandwich.

I started out with some peeled eggs, mustard, mayo, and relish. Not so appealing looking this way.

I used the fork to just mash it all together. Not so appealing this way either with all the slime on the side of the bowl.

A must is the toasted bread! Here is the finished sandwich! Now wasn't that quick and easy. Yummy!
