I was introduced to egg salad sandwich (es), during my stay in the states, and I must say since then I have been hooked, not only were these sandwiches absolutely delicious but also very easy to make. And let’s not forget how refreshing they are compared to the heavy fried chicken sandwiches.The egg salad sandwich (es), are a staple in the american culture , be it picnics, or get togethers or even weekend meals with families, these egg salad sandwich (es) definitely mark their presence.
The egg salad sandwich (es) are mild in flavour and being Indian I always like to add some jalapenos along with few other ingredients for that extra kick.
In my household, we very often make my version of the egg salad sandwich (es) for a light meal with a side of hot soup. I also love to have gherkins which were so easily available in the local indian grocery stores along with somes potato chips 🙂
Do try them out, and make sure you watch my video which also explains the way I boil the eggs to perfection. (i.e. without that dark ring that forms on the outside of the egg yolk)
