Sometimes the simplest easiest things are the best.
6 eggs, hard-boiled and cooled
1-2 T mayo (more of less to taste)
Salt and pepper, to taste
A tiny squeeze of lemon
2 celery stalks, washed and chopped
2 tsp dijon mustard (more of less to taste)
2 T chives, chopped
Good bread, toasted (or not)
Crack and peel each egg. Place eggs in a medium bowl with mayo, mustard and salt and pepper. Mash eggs with a fork, but not too much. You still want them a little chunky.
Stir in celery, chives and lemon juice.
Toast the bread-or don’t.
Assemble sandwich with egg salad, lettuce and a thin layer of mayo on the toast/bread. Enjoy!
Did I change anything? I added the mustard. It gives it a bit more flavor than just having mayo. I have been told this sandwich is good with some bacon in it.
What did the family think? My husband has been taking these sandwiches to work lately and he really likes them. I love them and so do my parents who are here visiting and did a taste test for MommaCooks today.
