Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs, boiled
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • garlic powder
  • fresh ground pepper
  • all seasoning salt
Source

Instructions

  1. Place 6 large eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring water to a boil and cook for ten minutes. Once the eggs are cooked remove from heat and rinse under cold water. Let the eggs cool for about five minutes. Tap the eggs gently on either end and give them a little roll on the counter in the palm of your hand. Peel and chop the eggs and place into a bowl.
  2. Add chopped celery, onions, and spices. Mix and then blend mayonnaise into the mixture. Spoon onto bread or a wrap and enjoy.

Options Add Tuna

Many times I find that I need to make one or two extra sandwiches, and I will add a can of tuna to the egg salad to stretch it out farther. This gives it a bit of a different taste but is quite good.

Other things you may want to add:

  • Chopped green pepper
  • Chopped dill or sweet pickles
  • A teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • When I make this for a wrap I always add romaine lettuce.


More Sandwich Ideas

Grilled Cheese with Bologna and sliced onion has always been a big hit with my children. I've never owned a sandwich grill and have always made these in a frying pan.

Butter two slices of bread placing one piece of bread butter side down on a hot frying pan. Place cheese, bologna and a thick slice of onion on top of the bread. Top with the other slice of bread buttered side facing up. Cook on medium heat and flip after 4 minutes. Continue cooking until the bread is a golden brown and you can see that the cheese has melted.

Hot Dog Sandwich

Don't have any hot dog buns. You can still enjoy a hot dog by using two slices of bread. Cook the hot dogs and slice once they are done. Place on bread and top with your favorite condiments. You can also simply wrap the bread around the hot dog.

My Favorite Veggie Sandwich/Wrap or Stuffed Pita

On a large whole wheat or flour tortilla or place cucumber and tomato slices along with romaine or your favorite lettuce, a few thin slices of onion and a touch of mayonnaise. Roll or fold up the tortilla and enjoy. Other additions that taste great on this sandwich wrap are green peppers, avocado slices, green and or black olives, cheese, and alfalfa sprouts.

Turkey or Chicken Salad Sandwich

Chop up cooked turkey or chicken with diced celery and onion. Add mayonnaise, fresh ground pepper, and any other spices you may like such as all seasoning salt or garlic powder. Stir and serve on sliced bread, buns or in a wrap. Fresh cranberry sauce is quite good on this sandwich too.

Rebecca, I've been eating grilled cheese with bologna since my high school days. A girlfriend of mine introduced me to them. They're pretty good.

2patricias, My step grandmother was like that. She would always be saying to me "Eat Susan, eat, you're too skinny." :)

I've always enjoyed egg salad sandwiches.

Thanks for reading and for your comments.

I always forget about egg salad sandwiches. When I was a teenager my grandmother thought that I didn't eat enough. I often had lunch at her house, and she would give me an egg salad sandwich that was so packed with filling that I had to spread my fingers out to stop the bread from splitting. For several years after I left home, I avoided egg salad sandwiches. Now I like them, but nobody makes them as well as my grandmother did.

nemanjaboskov, Yes many people do try to save time when it comes to cooking. Occasionally when I make Lithuanian dishes I'm in the kitchen for most of the day so I do know what this is like. Yes sharing and learning all the differences is interesting. Thank you for answering my question. Hope that you're having a nice weekend.

Well, we usually stick to the sandwiches made of butter, cheese, bologna or any type of salami, maybe a pickle... Tuna sandwiches are also popular, and that's about that...

I like the idea of making everything into a sandwich, like you do - why not? This is great when you are in a hurry. Serbian national cuisine is mostly based on real cooking, the one that sometimes takes all day, or even longer :) Even though people in the western countries cook, I get the feeling that they are always trying to save time on this activity, right?

There are a lot of differences, and this is just what makes sharing experiences so interesting.

Egg salad is great with scallions. I often add scallions to my mashed garlic potatoes :)

Very tasty looking recipes for egg and other sandwiches. My favorite sandwich is egg mayo with scallions.

I see you have added garlic to your variation. This would be worth trying to see what difference it would make to the taste.

Thanks for SHARING. Up and useful

The recipes were very interesting indeed.

I have always found it interesting how people in USA as well as Canada make sandwiches out of everything. I also like sandwiches, and I like all the ingredients you have mentioned here, but I rarely go and make a sandwich out of them.

Interesting, voted across the board, and I will try some of these soon.

I love your sandwich list. Thing is I never liked egg salad....or I thought I didn't....until a couple of years ago. Thing is I would never taste it and one day on a bet I did and I thought (I've really been missing out). This was a fun hub and very useful. Now, I'm hungry.

There is something weird going on because I know I commented on this once before and the comment isn't here...and I just had the same thing happen on another hub. Well, I will swallow my aggravation and tell you once again that I love egg salad sandwiches and right after reading this I made myself one and it was delicious.

I think I'll just wait until you do another food hub and then make that item too; I'll use you as my food source.

Great hub!

There is a sandwich called "The Bobbie" that is made by a chain by the name of Capriotti's. The sandwich is made using a hoagie roll, and it consists of sliced turkey, dressing (not salad dressing, dressing that you stuff a turkey with) and cranberry sauce. It is their signature sandwich.

Hi, Susan. Although I am not a fan of egg salad, your suggestion of adding cranberry sauce to a turkey or chicken salad sandwich has me salivating. Now why didn't I think of that. Thanks!

Egg Salad done well is one of the finest sandwiches ever, but a bad one will ruin your day. Good ones are most often the ones you do yourself, while the bad ones most often come from a convenience store shelf.

Great sandwich ideas! Just this morning I was frying up some back-bacon (aka Canadian bacon) for breakfast and thought, "Hey, I still have some egg salad left...I wonder...."

Long story short, egg salad, Canadian bacon, and a slice of sharp cheddar on a croissant is a great breakfast sandwich.

Thanks for these ideas, and for answering my question. Voted Up and Useful!
