Since school started it’s time to get back to being on a schedule, into making new recipes & sharing how I like them. I was doing this on Mondays previously. I hope to bring back Meal Plan Monday to sharing what is easy, healthy & round ups of recipes on occasion. Today’s recipe is for an egg salad sandwich. It’s not your typical egg salad sandwich recipe, it has cucumbers & basil added. Yummy!
I am sharing the version I found & also the alterations I made. I think if you try either your going to love it! Especially if you like egg salad.
First hard boil your eggs. While you are waiting chop up three celery stocks, one half of a cucumber (peeled) & a little basil ( about 1/4 cup). When eggs are done rinse with cold water, peel shells & chop them tossing them into a bowl.
Next add in your dijon mustard, a bit of mayo, 1 tsp. of paprika, salt & pepper to taste. Mix together in a bowl. I chilled mine for a bit prior to making the sandwiches but, you can use it right then or chill it. Don’t make my mistake & add a little too much mayo. I tried about 2 tbsp. Use about 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard & 1 tbsp. mayo *or less to start. Usually I add little by litte & stir but, in my zealousness to get done I just added in. No one was the wiser, we all lived. It didn’t help that I only made 6 eggs (equal to 4 sandwiches) & Sammie ate one as an after school snack. I think it would of been perfect with the 6th egg.
Add egg salad mix to your favorite bread (my bread was the end of loaf, making not a pretty a pic as I’d like. You know when it’s been tossed in the cupboard more than a few times, lol) Now wash & slice romaine lettuce to top your sandwich with. Of course you can use red leaf , head lettuce or even mixed salad greens. Toss on a tomato if you like. Be like Frank Sinatra & do it your way!
We enjoyed the cucumber egg salad sandwiches for a dinner with a tossed green salad as we are having our late summer heat waves! This would be perfect with your favorite soup in the colder months! I hope you enjoy this quick & easy meal!
