Egg Salad Sandwich

image

Egg salad sandwiches are some of the easiest sandwiches in the world to make, especially if you have somehard boiled eggssitting around in the fridge (like around Easter). I've found the best combination for a great egg salad sandwich is using toasted rye bread, and including a dash of curry with the mayo, celery, green onions and egg of the egg salad. The amount of mayonnaise is really a matter of taste, it all depends on how mayo-y you want your sandwich. The dash of curry comes from a suggestion from my friend George R., ever since I learned this trick from him I add it every time. The curry just gives the egg salad a little unexpected lift.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large hard-boiled egg*, peeled and chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp mayonnaise (to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped green onion
  • 2 Tbsp chopped celery
  • Curry powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 leaf of lettuce
  • 2 slices dark rye bread, toasted

* To make hard boiled eggs, place a few eggs in a saucepan, cover with at least an inch of water. Add a half teaspoon of vinegar and some salt to the water (if the shells crack while boiling, the vinegar will help keep the egg in the shell). Cover and bring the water to a boil. As soon as the water is boiling, remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 12 minutes. Drain water, add cold water to cool the eggs, let sit a couple minutes longer.

METHOD

1 Mash up the chopped egg a bit with a fork. Mix together the chopped hard-boiled egg, mayonnaise, onion and celery. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and curry powder. Mix.

2 If you haven't already, toast your bread slices. Put a layer of lettuce on one slice of toasted bread, spread the egg mixture on top of the lettuce, put another slice of toasted bread on top.
