Two Versions of the Egg Salad Sandwich

An egg salad sandwich with mayo and a little bit of mustard can be a delicious simple lunch.  I made two types today:  the kid friendly version for Will and a more grown up version for me, that is served slightly warm. 

Start with my perfect hard boiled egg.  You can make a sandwich with one egg but could use two if you prefer.

Kid Friendly Egg Salad Sandwich:
1 Hard cooked egg, sliced once horizontally and once vertically,with an egg slicer, not chopped
1 T Miracle Whip
1/2 t Yellow Mustard
dash salt
Two slices white bread or toast

Kid Friendly Egg Sandwich
Put all ingredients in a small bowl and stir gently to combine.  Put mixture on white bread or toast.  Yum.

Grown Up Egg Salad Sandwich:
1 Hard cooked egg, sliced once with an egg slicer
1 T Mayonnaise
1/2 t Dijon Mustard
dash salt
dash dried mustard
1/4 t Dill weed, dried
5-6 leaves Baby Spinach
1/2 oz Shredded Mozzarella
Two Slices Whole Grain Bread, toasted

Mix the Mayo, salt and dijon mustard in a small bowl to combine.  Add the eggs.  Gently coat the eggs with the mixture, being careful not to break them apart.

Put the eggs in a single layer on one slice of toasted bread.  Top with dry mustard and dill.

Place the spinach and mozzarella cheese on the other slice of toasted bread. 

Grown Up Egg Sandwich
 Put both slices on a plate and microwave for 15 seconds until cheese just starts to melt.  Put the slices together and enjoy immediately.
