Quick and easy, classic Egg Salad Sammies are perfect for your next graduation party!
I can’t believe I’ve been graduated from Northwest for 5 months already. It seems like yesterday I was setting in some sometimes boring… sometimes intense lectures just waiting until December 2013 so I could finally be done with school once again. Granted, I enjoyed my time at Northwest, being a Bearcat, but boy I was tired of school. Needless to say… my second run at college (for my Bachelors not my Associates) it was not nearly as fun as my first!!
When I was at my JUCO (Junior College) it was like the time of my life! I don’t think I should go into details of how extremely fun and the craziness that occured during those two and a half years… yes two and a half… why… ohh well because I decided to slack off and not take all of my gen-eds.. therefore I had to take an extra term (so technically only 2.25 years because a term is only 3 months ha). I rarely ever missed a class though!! That’s a plus right? Culinary school was a blast! I miss it a lot and I miss the people I went to school with. Such a great time.
My college graduations did not include a graduation party. That was only high school. Both times I graduated I was moving the next day…. to a different state in fact. After I graduated JUCO I moved to Denver the following day. Ohh how I also miss The Mile High! After I graduated last December it was time to move back to Iowa… actually I moved that same day; right after graduation! Psh… in a snow storm to top it off! Got to love winter in the Midwest! Snow, snow and more snow. All. The. Time! 🙂
Anyway… for my high school graduation, friends and family came over (I had it before the actual graduation) and we had lots of food. Around here, it was the typical… Two meats, sides, sandwiches and cake. Yup, lots of cake. Egg Salad was one of those on the list of sides. Some don’t like it, but hey it’s actually really good!! Throw it on a sandwich and add some lettuce, even tomatoes! Yumm-o!
Even if you think Egg Salad can be a little out of the ordinary for a graduation party side, it’s really not! Grab some rolls or buns and toss on some egg salad to make yourself Egg Salad Sammies… of course sammies refer to sandwiches! The nice thing with these are you can make them ahead of time and their perfectly sized for individual servings.
So for that next graduation party you’re planning… don’t be afraid to add these Egg Salad Sammies to your menu. Trust me, there will be people who appreciate them as they’re a very popular favorite sandwich of many folks 🙂
Ohh… this recipe only serves 4-6, but it will easily double, triple, quadruple or how many ever people you’re wanting to serve.
PS. Don’t mind my horrible ability to cut a roll without smashing it 😛 it still tastes the same ha!
- 6 boiled eggs, peeled
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 1 teaspoon relish (or simply use pickle juice--dill/kosher)
- To Taste salt
- To Taste pepper
- 1 green onion (tops), sliced no larger than 1/2"
- Rolls (I used KING'S Hawaiian Sweet Rolls)
- In a bowl, quarter the boiled eggs and chop into 1/2" chunks.
- Add remaining ingredients, mixing well.
- Cut the rolls in half and add the egg salad mixture to the bottom of the roll.
- Cover with the lid (top of the roll).

- **This recipe fits my family and friends taste buds... DO NOT BE AFRAID to alter this recipe by adding more or less of any of these ingredients**
- **Easily doubles, triples, ect.**
- **May use buns instead of rolls... whatever you prefer**
