Egg Salad Sandwich


This is a lunch I make quite often for myself and have since I was a kid.  That egg slicer thingy was one of the first tools I was trusted with in the kitchen, and, as the circle of life goes, now my son is old enough to use it.  Is that what it's called?  No matter!  Just like Simba taught his lion cub to call hyenas "Whoopi Goldberg" I will teach my son that this is called an egg slicer thingy. 

Anyhowzers, I don't get very fancy with my egg salad.  Some people like to add celery or pickles or tarragon or herbs, but I like mine nice and plain.  I boil eggs, peel and chop them, add mayonnaise, a few squirts of dijon mustard, pepper, sea salt and a dash of seasoned salt as well. 

I eat it with crackers, or roll it up in a wrap, spread it on toast, or make an old fashioned sandwich, like the one below.  I tried to add broiled pancetta to this, but instead burnt the crap out of it.  There may have been a small meltdown that followed ("my bacon waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah") but the sandwich made it all better.

That looks delicious. I've never made egg salad before since my mom and grandma are masters at it, but you have inspired me!

I love egg salad sandwich. I actually just had a finger-sandwich version this weekend at Chado Tea Room. (Have you ever been there? The service is slow as shit, but the food is DELICIOUS.). They boil their eggs in some kind of flavored tea. I don't know if it really makes a difference, but my mouth loves it.

Love egg salad. I grew up with Shrimp and Egg Salad sandwiches on Father's Day. Just like what it sounds - chop up some cooked shrimp and throw them in your egg salad. So good.

Also - at my house that thing is called a guitar. Because my children play the little metal strings in such a manner. I have two. One that I use for egg salad, and one that is all stretched out and bent because my children played it too much.
