"deviled" egg salad sandwich

 
i posted yesterday how i love deviled eggs and they are so easy.. well i also love egg salad sandwiches.. i have noticed upon seeing how other people make their egg salad i make mine differently.. i basically make the creamy filling for a deviled egg then chop up the whites and add it.. i added some fresh chives this time because well my chives are doing so well.. i've been adding them to everything.. and see those gorgeous blossoms? i made chive blossom vinegar this past weekend.. keep an eye out for that post soon.. now on to the ohh so simple but very tasty sandwiches..


after easter i realized i had several hard boiled eggs left over, and short of eating them all plain with a little salt, i felt compelled to make egg salad.. which wasn't such a chore or punishment since i love egg salad and it's so easy..


deviled egg sandwich

prep time: 15 minutes
cooking time: 15 minutes
servings: 4 sandwiches

ingredients:

8 hard boiled eggs, {here are some tips and tricks to get that perfect egg}
1/2 cup mayo
2 tblsp. prepared horseradish
1 1/2 tblsp. low/no sugar sweet pickle relish
2 tsp. honey mustard
1 tsp. paprika
1 tblsp. chopped fresh chives
salt and pepper, to taste

8 slices of bread
lettuce

hard boil your eggs, use the site referenced above for best results.. once they are cooled peel and cut in half, remove yolk to a medium mixing bowl and set the whites aside.. once all of the yolks are in the bowl mash with a fork.. then add mayo, horseradish, mustard, relish and paprika, chives, salt and pepper and mix well. you want it smooth.. chop up whites parts and add to egg yolks.. stir to combine.. you can now either eat it like this, add to a bowl of fresh torn lettuce, bread or serve with crackers.. i like to eat it with either crackers or like on this occasion i piled it on whole grain bread with a little lettuce..

enjoy and get cook'n!!
