Classic Egg Salad Sandwich for #SundaySupper

Which came first?  The chicken or the egg?  Or was it the Egg Salad Sandwich?  Hmmm…?

Classic Egg Salad

I’m going with the Classic Egg Salad Sandwich!  Why?  Because I can.  Do I really need another reason?

Classic Egg Salad

This recipe is why I buy an extra dozen or so eggs around Easter.  I LOVE this salad and it’s the only time of year I make it.  I’m not sure why.  It’s not like I couldn’t make it in July or November, it just wouldn’t be the same.  It’s tradition!

Classic Egg Salad

My “classic” Egg Salad Sandwich does have a twist.  It has all the usual players: diced hard boiled eggs, green onions, celery, mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper and then… a squeeze of sriracha for surprise kick!

Classic Egg Salad

Mmmm!  I can’t wait to dig in to this!  I love my Egg Salad stuffed into a pita pocket with a little lettuce.  You know, simple and easy!  It’s also great on croissants or a hearty whole wheat bread!  I’ll even take it straight out of the bowl with a fork.  Just don’t tell anyone that, Ok?
