Delicious Egg Salad Sandwich with Avocado

Instead of doing posts about awesome art and design, I’ve been busy making food. I don’t think many of you come here for my random food posts, so I apologize to pretty much everyone for this slight distraction. Anyhow, last night I was totally craving an egg salad sandwich, out of effing nowhere. I ran to the store, bought a dozen eggs, came home, and then realized I had no bread. Awesome.

So I woke up today with a mission to make the most delicious egg salad sandwich ever… and I totally did. This little beauty had egg (duh), mayo, green onion, dill, salt, pepper and a some red chili pepper flakes for a tiny kick. I also happened to buy some avocados while I was at the store, so they managed to find a way onto my sandwich as well. The bread is a dark rye which I lightly toasted because I hate hard bread, it scrapes the roof of my mouth every time and makes me sad. I ate this sandwich so damn fast, and I wanted to make and eat another one immediately after.

I’ve decided to make these more often this summer, they totally remind me of my childhood, my mom would make these all the time for me. Here’s to more summer food posts!

    I’m a fan of food posts! I’ve actually devoted an entire site to food posting.
    It’s in Danish, but take a look anyways, at least for the pretty pictures :)
    Puré Da Da we call it.

    Egg salad FTW.

    I usually make myself an egg salad sandwich twice a month – now I’ll try yr california-style recipe today. Here’s my variation on a “colonial” egg salad sandwich:
    for the salad I use egg, mayo, black pepper, basil (I use fresh leaves from my garden, chopped finely – but dried basil’s fine too), & curry powder.
    lightly toasted wheat bread with dijon mustard and a slice of tomato.

    No need to apologize to me, I love reading about food /new things to make, and I am an avid food photographer as well. This looks delicious and I have to try it before the summer is over.

    Nice blog, added it to my RSS feed a few weeks ago… and I only follow a few.

    Consider using a lemon mayonnaise, or adding a few squirts of the lemon on the avocado just before assembly.

    Less is more!

    This story totally reminded me of 40 year old virgin ;-)

    Oh my I must try this… sounds wonderful.

    Right now, fresh taraggon would replace my green onions, also a slight pinch of spanish sun dried espelette or Hungarian cumin. The dark rye is a bit of a gamble if its too strong. I<d still have it anytime of the day.

    Wow, this looks so damn good, I’m on a mission!

    I love plain ole miracle whip and mustard egg salad on squishy white!! ….imagining how great THIS tastes.

    thank you!!
