Deluxe Egg Salad
This classic egg salad is enriched with hard boiled eggs, cream cheese, celery, and croissants! This unique egg salad sandwich is the ultimate and easy to prepare!
I remember as a kid I thought boiled eggs were disgusting – in egg salad or otherwise. I couldn’t imagine why anyone would want them, let alone breakfast or even a snack.
So it’s funny how I end up loving the egg salad sandwiches at lunch, because the main ingredient is boiled eggs. Sure, not all hard-boiled eggs are good, but this distinction is usually hard to tell – as is the case with babies, when you try to get them to eat the veggies in their soup.
I don’t know what happened between my childhood and my adult life to change my mind, but I love the creamy texture and the consistent flavor.
After playing around with the flavors and techniques, I come across this amazing recipe for this adorable egg salad.
Over the years, I have tried the types of breads on which I put this delicious egg salad. Sometimes that’s just what I have at home, but other times I like to go out of my way and use a buttery croissant!
Hard boiled eggs are a superfood that can be eaten in a number of ways. They are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks! The current recommendation is to eat no more than 3 boiled eggs per day.
