My family and I love sandwiches, and I bet I made thousands of them while my five kids were growing up. Whether for lunch or dinner, everyone enjoys a great tasting sandwich, and egg salad is definitely a favorite in my house.
Of course what you put inside the sandwich is important, but so is the bread. For me, the bread has to be fresh and delicious. That's why Oroweat® Bread has been a staple in my house for decades. I can count on Oroweat® to be great tasting, offer plenty of variety to choose from, and nutritious.
Now that I'm a grandmother of four fabulous grandchildren, I find I'm still making sandwiches for this next generation. We do have a couple of picky eaters, but luckily they all love sandwiches and it's a simple thing to make them whenever we get hungry.
For these egg salad sandwiches, I used the Oroweat® Honey Wheat Bread. It's actually a delicious bread that I also use for toast and French toast, and it has a tang of sweetness to it because of the honey in it.
Since what we eat becomes more and more important to me, I feel good about choosing a bread that meets what I feel is a standard of quality. And I like that there are so many kinds to choose from, each with the goodness and great taste that I've come to expect.
Oroweat® Whole Grains Sliced Breads and Oroweat® Sandwich Thin Rolls contain 2 to 5 grams of fiber per slice or thin, have zero grams of trans fat, and are cholesterol free. They also contain no high fructose corn syrup, something which we always try to avoid.
Making these egg salad sandwiches are super easy, and even the kids will eat them with the tomatoes and spinach. I always offer veggies whenever possible to my grandkids, and try to set a good example by eating them myself. And it often works!
Here's how I make my version of egg salad sandwiches. Feel free to add or subtract the chopped pickles if you like. This recipe will make 6 sandwiches.
1 dozen hard boiled eggs, peeled
1 cup mayonnaise ( or add or subtract amount to your liking)
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 sweet pickles, diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tomatoes, sliced
12 slices Oroweat® Honey Wheat Bread
Mash the peeled eggs in a medium bowl. Add mayonnaise, mustard, pickles, and salt to eggs. Mix together well. Layer the tomatoes and spinach on one side of the bread.
Spread the egg salad on the other piece of bread and put together.
