The Incredible, Edible Egg..Salad Sandwich.. Southern Style

Egg salad sandwiches...simple, easy, and very tasty.  These days cooks want to fancy them up a bit, but I make mine the old fashioned Southern way, just like my Grandmother did.  When Bobby and I were dating in the late 50's, I used to make them for him...to his delight!  He had invited me out for lunch today, after his morning golf round.  He came home expecting me to be gussied up, and ready to go out.  Instead, I surprised him with egg salad sandwiches and sweet iced tea for lunch.  Needless to say, he was very happy.  This recipe is almost to simple to post, but I am going to do it anyway. ;) I hope all my lovely blogging friends have a great Memorial Day!

4 hard boiled eggs
(For perfect boiled eggs, put eggs in cold water, bring to a full boil, and cook for 5 minutes.  Turn the burner off, and let eggs sit in hot water for 10 minutes.  When cool, crack at the large end, and peel)
2 TBS sweet pickle relish
2 TBS mayonnaise
Salt to taste (I never use black pepper in my egg salad)
Soft white bread

Chop boiled and peeled eggs, add relish, mayo and salt;  mix well.  Spread a little mayo on each side of bread, add egg salad and serve.
Mix it up Monday
On the Menu Monday

  6. Patsy,
    I've been making quite a bit of egg salad lately. My husband and two of my sons love them. We have 35 chickens so we get plenty of eggs and I'm always looking for ways to use them. Now with the warmer weather here, I just about always have a batch of egg salad ready in the refrigerator. I like to put a piece or two of crispy lettuce on ours and toast the bread. Makes for a nice simple sandwich.

  7. Looks yummy! I love this sandwich, simple & easy to make. Thanks for visiting me and for following. Happy to follow you :)

    BTW, the Mutton Curry with Potatoes and Peas can be made with chicken too!
