Boiled Egg sandwich

Yummy and gratifying boiled egg sandwich

Boiled egg sandwich is always one of my go-to snacks especially when I am in a hurry. Throw it together at any time of the day or night and you will have a very filling meal. You can also make and cut it into canape sized bites and you will have a party ‘small chop’, finger-food or cocktail snack.

The beautiful thing about this sandwich is its simplicity, another is, it goes so well with any type of bread and I mean any type—sweet, savoury, plain, white, whole grain, multi-grain, even cinnamon roll bread.

This sandwich is easy to make. I will mention a few ways by which it can be tweaked, then leave you to your imagination.

To make Boiled Egg Sandwich:

3 eggs
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
6 slices of bread

Optional additional ingredients:*

3 tablespoons finely chopped spring onions 
1 1/2 tablespoon finely chopped celery 
a few drops yellow mustard 
1/2 teaspoon curry powder 
1/2 chopped,deseeded tomato 
1 firm avocado*, chopped

 

Place the eggs in a small pot, pour enough water to cover eggs well and boil for about 10 minutes.

Drain eggs into a bowl of cold water and place in the refrigerator.

Leave to get cold.

When the eggs are cold, crack into a clean plate.

Either chop finely using a sharp knife or mash with a fork or potato masher.

Do not over do it because you need some texture.

Serve with ice-cold Zobo drink, Nigerian Chapman drink (mocktail), tea, coffee, cocoa or chocolate drink, mango lassi, soda etc.

Note

  • Use one or two of the optional ingredients, not all in the same sandwich.
  • If using avocado, toss in 2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar to avoid discolouration.
  • The bread can be toasted before use.
