I used to eat egg salad sandwiches for as long as i can remember! It used to be one of my mothers favourite sandwiches. The filling can be made and kept in advance for a day or two so it makes an excellent filling when one needs to prepare in advance. Its also an excellent filling for tarts! I combined it with lettuce and mortadela but you can use ham of any type!!
Cynthia Serrao…this recipe is for you…hope you enjoy it and make it. The normal recipe just calls for mayonnaise but i have made my salad taste piquant by adding mustard and a few drops of hot sauce!! This is how you go about it.
4 eggs, hard boiled and grated
2-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of mustard
a few drops of hot sauce
1 small onion chopped fine
a dash of black pepper powder
slices of ham or mortadela
toasted bread of your choice
mix the grated eggs with the chopped onion, mayonnaise , mustard and hot sauce. Add the black pepper to taste and salt if needed
Take a slice of toasted bread and spread the egg mixture on it.
Place the lettuce leaves on top of it
Place the mortadela on top of it.
Cover with the other slice of toasted bread.
Cut and serve!!!
