We’re fast running out of 2011′s National Sandwich Month, and I pulled out all stops in creating this week’s SANDWICH OF THE WEEK.
CHUNKY DEVILED EGG SALAD SANDWICH
To start I placed six eggs in pot of cold water which covered the eggs, added a tablespoon of white vinegar and a dash of salt. I brought the water to a full boil and removed the pot from the heat and covered with a lid. I let the eggs set in the water for 15-minutes before pouring off the hot water. I cracked each egg and filled the pot with cold water. I refreshed the cold water several time until the eggs were cool. This is supposed to make peeling the eggs easier.
I peeled the eggs and removed the yolks putting them in one bowl and the whites in another.
I mashed the yolks with a fork and added a half and half mix of Kraft Mayo w/Olive Oil and Kraft Miracle Whip, a healthy tablespoon of Mustard Girl Sweet ‘N’ Spicy Honey Mustard, a tablespoon of chopped onion, a dash of Tabasco Sauce and a sprinkle of paprika. I mixed to a smooth consistency.
Then I chopped the egg whites into chunky pieces, and folded them into the deviled yolk mixture.
To put the sandwich together, I sliced a sandwich sized croissant in half … added a slice of Sargento’s Natural Swiss Cheese to the bottom side and topped with a generous helping of the egg salad. I topped with lettuce and the top half of the croissant.
I garnished with Mario’s Queen-sized Stuffed Olives and served with an ice-cold glass of peach iced tea. Also had a chocolate chip cookie for dessert.

This was the best egg salad sandwich I have ever eaten! And unless I have visitors in the next day or two, I’ve got enough fixings for three more sandwiches.
