11 Fabulous Egg Salad Variations

Egg salad sandwiches have been such a hit with my kids and their friends that I'm branching out and looking for other ways to use egg salad. Here are some of the best ones I've found.

  • Add avocado and serve on slices of tomato. Oh man, this is good. It's also an alternative for kids who can't eat gluten. Use the tomato like a slice of bread.
  • Serve egg salad in a pita pocket with alfalfa sprouts.
  • Put dollops of egg salad on Ritz crackers.
  • Use hamburger buns instead of regular sandwich bread.
  • Wrap egg salad in whole-wheat lavash and include beet greens or Swiss chard. Here's an excellent egg salad recipe for this at the NY Times.
  • Serve egg salad on a bed of lettuce (okay, this one probably won't work for the kids, but it might work for you!)
  • Wrap it in a burrito with tomatillo, tomato, cilantro, and lime juice, a la Taste of Home.
  • Fill croissants with finely chopped egg salad.
  • Add curry to your egg salad and serve it on naan bread.
  • Serve your egg salad open-faced on rye bread with slices of bacon and crumbles of blue cheese. Check out this variation on Eating Well.
  • Spread egg salad on a toasted bagel for an easy breakfast or morning snack.
Any more egg salad ideas? We're all ears.
