Classic Egg Salad Sandwich

The Egg Salad Sandwich belongs to that elite group of classic lunch time sandwiches that can be found on any diner menu throughout the country. Other sandwiches on this list are; bologna or fried bologna sandwich, tuna salad, grilled cheese using American cheese slices, chicken salad, ham salad, club sandwich, BLT and something I’ve never had, a pork chop sandwich.

Serve With

Serve an Egg Salad Sandwich with potato chips and a dill pickle spear for a true classic. I like to serve egg salad on plain ol’ white bread but you can serve egg salad on whole wheat bread, sourdough bread or even a nice country white bread. Substitute the chips with a snack of your choice and serve with an apple or other fruit available. A few cookies for dessert would be nice too.

Twice A Year

About twice a year I crave this old fashioned sandwich. I only like it served on white bread, never toasted. I think it tastes best when warm and within a few hours of preparing. Also, we like to use miracle whip salad dressing when making egg salad. One thing I don’t understand is how anyone can purchase, let alone eat, one of those egg salad sandwiches that they sell at convenient stores. You know the ones, they can be found in the refrigerated section. How long have they been sitting there ya think? Doesn’t the bread get soggy? It just grosses me out!
