Egg Salad Sandwich

Thursday, September 3, 2009

I love egg salad sandwiches! There is just something about an egg salad sandwich for lunch on a sunny day, it makes me want to start a new book! That's right... most women want the beach and a margarita but I'll take a book and an egg salad sandwich any day (Justin says I am a 60-year-old woman trapped in a 28-year-old's body)!
There is a wonderful documentary I saw a couple years ago called "The Teachings of Jon". I've never seen it on TV since so I finally broke down and bought a copy. It's about Jon, a man with down syndrome who LOVES egg sandwiches. Ok... the documentary isn't just about egg sandwiches, here's the trailer. It's a wonderful documentary, I can learn a lot from Jon... not to mention he has great taste in sandwiches ;-)

6 eggs
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon mustard
1 tablespoon relish
pepper (to taste, optional)
lettuce (optional)
6 slices whole wheat bread

To hard boil eggs – Gently place eggs into a single layer in a sauce pan. Add just enough water to cover the eggs completely. Put on the stove and bring the water to a boil. Just as the water reaches a rapid boil remove from heat and tightly cover with a lid. Let the pan site for 17 minutes. Transfer eggs into a bowl with cold water. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes and peel.
Finely chop hard boiled eggs. Place chopped eggs in a medium bowl. Mix in mayo, 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix in mustard, relish and pepper. Put egg salad onto bread slices, top with lettuce. (Makes 3 Sandwiches)

Hey Carrie, your sandwich looks perfect! "I am a 60-year-old woman trapped in a 28-year-old's body" This is too funny, my husband says the same thing about me...I know exactly what you mean about the sandwich and a book!

What a touching ending! I haven't given egg salad a chance since I was young. I think it's time I whip up one to see what I've been missing. Thanks!

I totally agree Carrie, I LOVE a good egg salad sandwich, especially on dark whole grain bread...and a diet Coke on ice.

Every time I have an egg salad sandwich I realize how much I really enjoy them. I just need to remember to make them every now and again. Why is it that we tend to forget some of the delicious foods of an earlier time?

I love egg salad sandwiches too! I like to put sliced green onions in mine for a little extra crunch and flavour.

Your pic looks divine! This is definitely inspiring enough for me to start making lunches again instead of buying out every day.

Powerful documentary indeed, but putting aside the interview, that sandwich is amazing, I love egg salad, specially made on sandwich.
