Easy Egg Salad Sandwiches

 

I’m trying to get back into the swing of things here.  The kids had spring break last week yet it wasn’t much of a break for us at all.  We had 2 softball games and 2 practices.  Student driving.  Spring/summer clothes shopping for all 3 kids.  A yearbook deadline and throw in a few more things and it’s almost a typical week except the kids were home during the day.

We ended the week though with a fantastic weekend with family and friends.  Laughter, conversation, 2 egg hunts and food!  Oh the food!  There was ham and potatoes and a fresh salad and great dips and then dessert.  My favorite part.  Chocolate cheesecake, Candy Pizza and tomorrow’s blog post – Chocolate Marble Gooey Butter Cake from The Cake Doctor.  You don’t want to miss that!

I ate so much I shouldn’t have to eat for a week.  I wish it worked like that.  Did you have to be rolled away from the table too? 

With both of the egg hunts the kiddos participated in, they used plastic eggs but when I was a kid, the Easter Bunny hid the hard boiled colored ones around the house.  We always had to make sure we found them all otherwise, in a few days they start to smell.  And not in a good way. 

Are you wondering what to do with all of the hard boiled Easter eggs you have leftover?  If you are – here is an easy egg salad recipe. 

My egg salad is nothing fancy but it hits the spot and can be made in less than 5 minutes.

Just peel that hardboiled egg.  Mush it up.  Add some Miracle Whip or mayo.  A little bit of onion powder, pepper and seasoning salt.  Stir well.  Spread it on a piece of bread and you have yourself a fast sandwich.  Now if it were my hubby’s sandwich, he’ have it on the softest, squishiest piece of white bread you can find but I don’t hold that against him.   I prefer mine on a slice of whole wheat – one full of flavor.  To each their own I guess.

  

Two things I wanted to tell you about so I can cross them off of my To-Do list. 

First – If you print out a recipe from my blog, you will now have a photo attached to it.  Go ahead, hit the little printer in the recipe area and see what it looks like.  Pretty cool huh?!

Second – there will be some giveaways coming up in the next month or two.  Can’t spill the beans on them yet, but they will be cool – I promise you.

Thanks for starting your week with me!

    “Did you have to be rolled away from the table too? ” No, I was pretty good. I’m trying to lose this muffin-top without being able to really exercise. It’s a challenge. Luckily, I guess, no one stepped up to become “chef” here when I could no longer do it, so there wasn’t a tableful of food, either.

    Perfect egg salad!! I make mine the same way except that I grate a small amount of onion into mine rather than use onion powder. I like it simple with a short ingredient list. Yummm
