An egg salad sandwich, made with fresh eggs and real mayonnaise, is the perfect picnic sandwich or back to school lunch box meal.
I will admit that at this time of year I miss being in 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, you could swap what you didn’t want for someone else’s homemade chocolate chip cookies.
One thing that I would never want to swap however, was my egg salad sandwich. I love the creaminess and the chunks of eggs on soft white bread. It just reminds me of being a kid.
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 egg 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 a ciabatta roll is a nice change. The egg salad works itself nicely into the little holes in the ciabatta.
