I was making myself an egg salad sandwich for lunch last week and Vanessa asked me if I thought she would like egg salad sandwiches. I couldn’t believe she had never tried one because they are one of my favorites. I told her, “You love eggs and you LOVE mayonnaise so I know you will love egg salad too!” So she tried her first ever egg salad sandwich and now she is hooked. This “Good Luck” Egg Salad Sandwich is the perfect thing to pack for a classic brown bag, back-to-school lunch.
With the start of a new school year, I’m excited to tell you that Hellmann’s has a new mayonnaise squeeze bottle that is designed to get more mayonnaise out without all the shaking, banging and mess. The Hellmann’s Squeeze Bottle still has the same unmistakable taste of Hellmann’s and is a better way for mom and dad to make lunch even tastier. You can put the mayo just where you want it with the newly designed Hellmann’s Squeeze Bottle with a clean lock cap and tip. It’s so precise that topping a sandwich, salad or snack with a little extra love never appeared so perfect!
Start by making the egg salad for the sandwich. I like to make extra hard-boiled eggs to keep in the fridge so they are ready to go whenever someone wants one. Put as many eggs as you want in a pan and add enough cold water to cover the eggs by an inch. Cover the pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat, leave the cover on and allow the eggs to cook in the hot water for 12-15 minutes. Immediately cool the eggs with cold water.
To make one sandwich, peel and rinse one hard-boiled egg. Cut the egg into slices and place them in a small bowl. Add mayonnaise, diced pickles and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Use a fork to mash up the eggs and mix everything together.
To assemble the sandwich, first add some lettuce to a slice of your favorite bread.
Add two slices of tomato.
Top with the egg salad.
Then, use the new Hellmann’s Squeeze Bottle to write a simple message, or draw a picture like a smiley face, on the other piece of bread. You can get a coupon for .50 off the new Hellmann’s Mayonnaise Squeeze Bottle here.
I wanted to wish Vanessa ‘good luck’ during the first week of school so I wrote ‘luck on the bread.
Add the second piece of bread, with the special message on it, to the sandwich.
Put the egg salad sandwich and other lunch items in a brown paper lunch bag and it’s ready to go! This school year, you can keep the love behind the lunchbox alive with Hellmann’s.
