#351 - Martha's Green Egg Salad Sandwich

I printed this recipe off from Martha Stewart over 4 years ago and I finally decided to make it yesterday for St. Patty's day.

You could really make it any day, but I had some avocados I needed to use and I thought it was a perfect green thing to make. (plus I've been craving egg salad sandwiches)

I modified the recipe a little:
  • 5 hard-boiled egg whites
  • 1 hard-boiled egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon mustard (Martha used Dijon, but I'm not that fancy)
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 avocado, mashed, plus 1/4 avocado roughly chopped
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Lettuce, arugula, and tomato slices (optional - I didn't have any of this)
  • 6 slices white/wheat sandwich bread (I like wheat, Pepe likes white)
  1. Using a pastry blender or fork, mash together egg whites and yolks in a large bowl; carefully fold in avocado. Stir in mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place 3 slices of bread on a work surface. Evenly divide egg salad among bread slices. Add lettuce greens or tomato, if desired. Top with remaining 3 slices bread. Serve.
It's pretty good and I'll definitely make it again if I have avocados on hand.
ps, see the wheat bread bought...for $.70...I have a post I want to do about it.
