Egg Salad Sandwich

I've been a little pre-occupied lately researching a new camera. I currently have a Nikon Coolpix 5700 (if you know of any buyers let me know) and I was looking to upgrade. I use a Canon PowerShot SD870 IS to shoot all of my food shots and love the way they turn out. The main reason we got it is because it fits in my purse and it's small to take out instead of a big camera. Soooo being as happy as I am with the little PowerShot I'm making the full switch to Canon. More details to come next week when I return home with my review of the new camera. I admit to be a little overwhelmed, but I'm learning a lot about changeable lenses so I can work with autofocus and manual focus.

Where did I go you ask? Well we headed for cooler weather and to surround ourselves with natures beauty of the Grand Canyon. My husband and I love an adventure and the Grand Canyon has been on our list for a while now. It jut so happened that Easter weekend worked out good for us to go. So in the mix of looking for the camera lens and planning the trip it's pushed making dinner every night to "what can we eat from the freezer that's quick to fix?". If you're looking for something to make with all those colored eggs here's one meal to check off the list.

It's been a long time since I had an egg salad sandwich and when it comes to this and tuna salad I'm pretty picky. I'm spoiled with my mom making it sweet with pickle juice and creamy with mayo. So thanks mom, I can't order it when I go out anymore!

Egg Salad Sandwiches
Makes 2 sandwiches

4 hard boiled eggs
3 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. sweet pickle relish (I used more because that's the way I like it)
splash of sweet pickle juice
dash of cayanne
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices of your favorite bread, toasted

In a medium bowl, mash peeled eggs with a fork until tiny crumbles form. Stir in mayo, mustard and relish til creamy. Add seasoning to taste.

Toast your bread and spread with egg salad evenly. Top with bacon and fresh spinach or lettuce if desired.

Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Easter!!
