Crustless Egg Salad & Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

The crustless tea sandwich meets egg salad and cucumber! This is an easy recipe for toddlers, kids, and adults! Watch my three year old, Julius, as he makes and enjoys these delicious sandwiches.

My mom used to make these sandwiches for us as kids. They are great for breakfast, lunch, or even just an after-school snack. Certainly, mom knows best! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. ;-)

These sandwiches have also been a huge hit at all types of parties for both kids or adults!

How to Make Easy-Peeling Hard-Boiled Eggs

How to Peel a Cucumber

Tips for Preparation

If you have a toddler helper, prepare all of the ingredients ahead of time. Toddlers have a short attention span, so I have everything ready before my toddler starts cooking.

  • Eggs - Place eggs in boiling water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs to a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes or until completely cooled. Peel and dice eggs.
  • Cucumber - Peel & dice cucumber. For your convenience, a how-to video is listed to the right. I completely remove the skin from the cucumber for toddler recipes.
  • Mayo - Try putting the mayo in a zip lock baggy with one end snipped and let your toddler squeeze the mayo out...or they can spoon it from a cup.
  • White Bread - Remove crusts of white bread using a pizza cutter. Super easy! Note: Save the crusts for homemade bread crumbs. Put them in a blender & then freeze in an airtight container.

All ingredients, including measurements, are below:

It's ok if you make a mess. ;-)

A fun moment in our video is when Julius accidentally splashes mustard in his hair. He is so upset, but the show must go on. LoL - When cooking with a toddler helper, or by yourself, it's ok if you make a mess. ;-)

      Nice hub Melinda. Easy well organized instructions. My young son loves eggs. In fact I allow him to make egg on Sunday mornings. Will have him follow your recipe!

      Thank you Eiddwen and Cecileportilla! :) I'm so glad that our recipe hubs are useful. I started making these videos with my two year old (he is now 3) because he was so picky & skinny. I was having a hard time getting him to eat anything but cereal. Whenever we cook together he is so proud of himself that he eats his plate and asks for seconds.

      Cecil, I am looking forward to hearing about your son's experience. ;) Y'all have a great day hubbing.

      Sincerely, Mel

      Vespawoolf, avacado and spinach sounds wonderful! :-) Great ideas. Yah, Julius had me cracking up. He doesn't like to get dirty or have anything on his face or hands. So, when the mustard flung into his hair, I was afraid that he would stop the show and throw a fit for a bath. LoL

      Have a great day hubbing. ;) Sincerely, Mel
