When I was a kid I had some quirks, I guess we all do. One of my moms favorite stories about me and my stubbornness is refusing to eat ice cream if it wasn’t chocolate. She just told the story (again) at Labor Day! LOL I also loved cheese, but hated it melted and for some reason would always ask for my peanut butter and jellies with no jelly, I thought it was gross. I also liked hard-boiled eggs but not egg salad? For some reason smooshing it up and throwing it on a slice of bread did NOT appeal to me at all. Maybe cause I really didn’t like the yolk or Mayonnaise. Then again, maybe it’s because it just looks GROSS!
So I have a lot of memories of my mom making me sliced egg sandwiches. She’d use just enough mayo to glisten the bread, slice the egg and viola! I LOVED these, especially on soft fresh bread with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. So simple and so YUMMY!
Now, of course, I eat ALL kinds of ice cream, love grilled cheese and really can’t live without my low sugar strawberry jelly. But the thought of egg salad still gives me the heeby jeebies. I think because it has SO much mayo in it and I’m just not a fan. So today I made my “poor mans” egg salad sandwich and it was EXACLY how I remembered them. I think this is going to become a new staple lunch for me.
- light whole wheat bread or a whole wheat bun (I used a Whole Wheat Potato Roll)
- 1 hard boiled egg sliced
- about 1 tsp light mayo
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Smear the mayo on the bread or roll (you could use a bit more). Arrange egg slices, sprinkle with salt & pepper. ENJOY! I added some carrots and pepper strips on the side.
