Egg Salad Sandwiches are simple yet delicious. They’re so easy to make and are great for a quick lunch or snack on the go!
If there’s one food you can always find in our refrigerator, it’s hard boiled eggs. I usually buy a dozen every Sunday at the farmer’s market, boil them up as soon as we get home and then put a big bowl of them in the fridge. Packed with protein and iron, these little orbs are a favorite with everyone in our house, especially when they’re on the go. They work for pretty much every meal.My husband usually just pops a whole one in his mouth with a little salt. I appreciate the simplicity of that, but you can be simple and still have a bit more fun.
Egg salad sandwiches only take seconds to whip up and you can really have fun with your ingredients from dijon mustard to grated carrots to capers. People can get quite finicky about what goes in their egg salad, though, so know your audience. In our house, pickles are a must. We also have dill growing like weeds in our garden, so I added some to this recipe and it took it from simple to spectacular. I truly consider this a gourmet egg salad, which even the tiniest little eater will love.
Egg Salad Sandwiches are great to put in a school lunch too to switch things up a bit. School lunch is where you can make food really fun for your kids. After these Egg Salad Sandwiches you should make one of these Animal Face Toasts which are too cute for words, a Monogram Sandwich or any of these Vegetarian Sandwich Ideas. Varying your school lunches helps kids learn to love food and be excited about eating things that are good for them!

Try offering something like Egg in the Hole http://b12.ba4.myftpupload.com/2009/05/03/egg-in-the-hole/ or Breakfast Burritos http://b12.ba4.myftpupload.com/2009/04/29/breakfast-burrito/
Our 15 month old toddler will eat eggs cooked in dishes but not by itself or in sandwiches.
Do you have any recipe tips?
This is the first egg salad recipe that doesn’t call for mustard, THANK YOU! 🙂 I *hate* the taste and smell of mustard.
I was stuck for something to make for my son for dinner. Luckily, I had hard-boiled some eggs. I made this egg salad and it’s PERFECT. He loves it so much. Made it again last night and it was like I had bought him Hot Wheels! Thanks.
