I’ve got to be honest, I don’t know if I’d ever even heard of “egg salad” sandwiches until I married Jeff. He, however, has been a fan his whole life, and it’s one of the dishes he prides himself in making the very best! It has even become a staple lunch choice on Sunday afternoons.
I recently decided to mix up his traditional egg salad recipe a bit, and the result was fantastic! Even Jeff admitted that I took egg salad “to a whole ‘notha level”!
We always have hard boiled eggs in the fridge because we all like to snack on them, or make egg salad sandwiches any time we want. With Easter coming I anticipate a whole dozen extra colored eggs in our fridge and I’m pretty sure all of those extra eggs will go towards making this sandwich!
