My grandfather, Goff, ate 2 scrambled eggs: fresh eggs from the hen house; with just about every meal, for as long as I can remember, and he lived well into his 80’s. He definitely loved them ~ and, I do too, although I don’t eat nearly that many!

This is a simple recipe for a lush, delicate, tasty egg salad sandwich. And, I imagine, by now, you’re probably saying, “Really, a recipe for an egg salad sandwich?” There are a lot of folks out there, who have never made egg salad for a sandwich. So this is for them, and you too. Sometimes, I add a couple of tablespoons of chopped pimento-stuffed green olives.
By the way, I came across this “Sandwich Personality Test,” what your favorite sandwich says about your personality and love life.
“Egg salad enthusiasts are often the center of attention. They are entertaining and crave adventure. The best words to describe those who love egg salad sandwiches are: charming and energetic. Egg salad sandwich lovers are the “universal romantic” and are often compatible with all sandwich lovers.”
An egg salad sandwich seems like heaven to me ~ deviled eggs on bread…
