An EGG-cellent Sandwich!

I love, Love, LOVE a good egg salad salad sandwich!  I remember one outing I had with my husband to a little deli on Saturday.  I ordered the egg salad sandwich.  It looked soooo good, and I had a craving.  Well, imagine my disappointment when I took my first bite only to find the egg salad had NO FLAVOR AT ALL!  SIGH!!!!  I was so upset.  I couldn't even finish my food.

Well, when I make my own egg salad sandwiches - they are GREAT!  See...
You want one of these right now, don't you?  (Nodding) I thought you did.  As promised, here is the recipe...

Tanya's EGG-cellent Egg Salad Club


One recipe of egg salad (ingredients listed below)

  • 6-10 hard cooked eggs (either BAKED or STEAMED)
  • mayonnaise
  • yellow mustard
  • dill pickle relish
  • salt 
  • pepper
  • celery salt
Throw a little bit of everything into a bowl and mix it up to your desired consistency.
  • croissants
  • bacon
  • tomatoes
  • leafy lettuce

Here are a few photos!

Celery salt is especially delicious with eggs!

Grate the eggs for a nice consistency.

Slice your tomatoes, sprinkle them with salt, and let them sit on a paper towel for 10 minutes to draw out some of the moisture.

Bake your bacon!  I ALWAYS bake my bacon. 
This is uncured bacon from our local market, but any favorite bacon will do.  To bake your own bacon, Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and top it with a rack (this allows the fat to drip off the cooking bacon).  Bake your bacon for at least 20 minutes.  Keep an eye on it.  You don't want it to burn.  Baked bacon is less messy because you don't have the fat spatters all around your frying pan do deal with.  Baked bacon is easier because you can cook an entire package at once.  AND... Baked bacon is better because the smell of cooked bacon will only linger for a few hours instead of a few days.  Plus, you can't beat this clean-up...

Wad up the foil and throw it away!
 To assemble your EGG-cellent sandwich, slap all of your ingredients on a fresh croissant.  

These babies were mere hours old when the became dinner!
 Voila!  Dinner is served, or lunch, or breakfast if your feeling adventurous.  You really can't go wrong with egg salad!

Serve your sandwich with whatever sounds good to you!

Here is a close-up!

Here is another view...MMMMMMM!
Okay, now I'm hungry!  I'll get back to you later.  My kitchen is calling!
