Egg Salad Sandwich Al Fresco

So I've been on a bit of a sandwich kick lately.  Ever since I've started my new job as a stay at home mother to 2 bilingual, bicultural chihuahua hybrids I've had to channel my domestic side.  Oh and with Lent that adds another challenge to preparing meals.  Not so much a problem for me, but the hubster likes some carne.  I don't know how people did it before the internet, if it weren't for the blogosphere I would have nowhere to go for help and inspiration for my next meal.  The other layer of cooking fun, is that we are trying to eat what we have.  Usually I'm ok but since I haven't gone to the store for days, it was a little of a quickfire challenge. I was ready to hit Subway and pick up an Italian Lovers Sub ( I made this yesterday, so we were ok for Lent!)  Anyway, this is what you will need for your sandwich:
  • 2 eggs per person
  • some chopped celery to taste
  • some chopped chives or onions to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons of mayo or you can eyeball it
  • 1 Tablespoon of Mustard or to taste.  I like spicy mustard.
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • lettuce
  • 2 pieces of whole grain bread
So this is my take on an egg salad sandwich.  If you want to check out the original recipe that inspired me click here.  I didn't stray too much from it really.  Oh, and a little update, the hubster did not come home for lunch today, so I enjoyed this sandwich all by myself and it was pretty good if I do say so myself!
What are some of your meat free lunch ideas?

You can read my mind. Next to mexican and thai food, I LOVE sandwiches. I love egg salad a lot, I just dislike boiling eggs and peeling them. I think maybe I will make a batch today though. Love the pictures. We get in such a rut during Lent. It's usually bean and cheese burritos or grilled cheese sandwiches. I did tell Kevin as he left for work today that we should go out for fried catfish tonight though. :) Oh, and my husband is like yours, he always wants meat. I could do without it half the time....

Have a great weekend!

we love egg salad sandwiches. your method is slightly different than mine; i like the idea of mashing it all together with a fork, but alas J likes his eggs cut with precision.

as for being a stay-at-home canine mama - i'm sure the boys adore their time with you while you're operating sealaura industries from your casita.

Egg salad is my favourite meatless lunch!

I will have to try the mustard (I love honey mustard) and yes, the gren onions give it a zip!
Lovely photos and yummy post!
