After watching chef Bobby Flay make a scrumptious-sounding egg salad sandwich, I ran out and purchased the ingredients. I'm glad I did because it's a deliciously filling sandwich! I couldn't help but be comforted by its classic simplicity. However, no Flay recipe is complete without a fiery twist, and this salad gets its kick from smoked Spanish paprika. Since Easter is time when everyone has extra hard boiled eggs lying around, get the recipe and read more.
2/3 cup light mayonnaise (recommended: Hellmann’s® or Best Foods®)
2 tablespoons dijonnaise
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 heaping tablespoon smoked Spanish paprika
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 green onions (pale green part), thinly sliced
1 cup diced celery
3 tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley
8 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
8 slices whole grain or whole wheat bread
½ small onion, thinly sliced
Parsley leaves, for garnish* (optional)
- In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, dijonnaise, white wine vinegar, and paprika.
- Add the green onion, parsley, celery and eggs to the mayonnaise mixture and gently fold to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Brush the bread on both sides with some of the oil and grill on a grill or grill pan until lightly golden brown or place on a baking sheet and place under the broiler for 45 seconds per side.
- Divide the egg salad among the 8 slices of bread, top with slices of onion and a few parsley leaves.
*I garnished my sandwich with butter lettuce instead of parsley.
