I will admit that at this time of year I miss school. I don’t miss homework but I miss buying Lisa Frank folders, pink pet erasers, finding out who was in my class and praying I didn’t get the “mean” teacher. And of course I miss lunch time, where you got to see who had what for lunch and if you were convincing enough, swap what you didn’t want for someone elses cookies. One thing that I would never want to swap however, was my egg salad sandwich. I loved the creaminess and the chunks of eggs with the soft white bread. It just reminds me of being a kid. As a result, every year around this time I make myself one.
I am pretty much a purest when it comes to my Egg Salad. I don’t like to add any fancy ingredients to it. Mayonnaise, not Miracle whip. Yellow mustard, not Dijon. I do, from time to time, like to add some red onions or lettuce on top of the salad. I also like to change up the bread from time to time too. Of course soft white bread is always a winner but I have also found that ciabatta is a nice change. The egg salad works itself nicely into the little holes in the bread.
