Had one of these lately? Because of concerns about cholesterol and fat, this sandwich has fallen out of favor. But there is something about egg salad on soft bread that is unique -- a quietness, a softness. This is definitely the sandwich to have on a Saturday afternoon after a week that really took it out of you.
4 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled (see note)
1 medium celery stalk, diced
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices soft white or brown bread
Lettuce and sliced tomato (optional)
Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe at
Cut one egg in half lengthwise. Place each half flat side down on a cutting board and coarsely chop. Transfer the chopped egg to a medium bowl. Repeat with the remaining 3 eggs. Add celery, onion, and mayonnaise to bowl and stir. Season with salt and pepper.

Place half of the egg salad on a piece of bread. Top with lettuce and tomato, if desired. Add the top piece of bread, cut in half, and serve. Repeat for the remaining sandwich.

NOTE: To make hard-boiled eggs, place the eggs gently in a 2 1/2-quart saucepan two-thirds full of cold water. Do not drop them in or they may crack. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 12 minutes. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and plunge them into a bowl of very cold water to stop the cooking process and make them easier to peel.

Egg Salad Sandwich
1/2 cup Mayo to 4 eggs for 2 servings of egg salad seems entirely too much and 57 grams of fat per serving seems obscene, in my humble opinion.
