Egg Salad Sandwich

The egg salad sandwich is probably one of the first sandwiches you ever learned to make as a child. This along with tuna salad, bologna, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, were a staple at our house.

All the kids learned to make them pretty early out of necessity – (at least they probably thought so). If they were hungry and mom or dad was busy, they'd ask if they could make one of the above sandwiches. I'd boil the egg for them if they weren't old enough and they'd have at it.

There were many times, they would offer to make me a peanut butter sandwich when I was working hard at the sewing machine or painting. They were proud of their accomplishment, and I was too. Hey, little successes add up to bigger successes later on.

An easy fix

An egg salad sandwich is probably one of the easiest sandwiches to make. All you really need is an egg or two, mayonnaise or salad dressing, mustard if you like that, and bread. You can add a few seasonings if you like. Season to taste with salt, pepper, basil, onion powder, garlic powder, basil, or parsley, and we like to add pickle relish.

If you don't like something leave it out. Come up with your own recipe. When it tastes good to you, then you'll come back to this sandwich recipe again and again.

Now spread it on your favorite bread and you are good to go. Breads that are not too soft or hard make for the perfect sandwich. If it's too soft, the bread will soak up the moisture from the filling and fall apart. If it's too hard, your filling may end up in your lap and all you'll have is a mouthful of bread.

I like 100% whole wheat bread, slightly toasted. English muffins, kaiser rolls, croissant rolls, will also do well. Don't be afraid to experiment – who knows you may come up with the perfect sandwich!
