Egg Salad Sandwiches
We now have egg salad sandwiches all the time, and the kids love them. They're smooth and squishy, and you can make them salty if you want or you can add some crunch with pickle relish or chopped celery. And kids like to help make them.
If you're like me and have never been exposed to egg salad sandwiches, here's a basic recipe. But after you've made them once, you won't need a recipe. And my friend was right: they're great when you're low on ingredients. They don't take much.
4 hard-boiled eggs
3 Tbs. mayo
1 tsp. mustard (regular, Dijon, or anything)
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce (not necessary but yummy)
1/2 tsp. salt
Smoosh the eggs through the tines of a fork until they look like crumbs. Kids like to help with this step. Then add all the other ingredients and stir until nice and uniform. Slather it onto bread.
