This Deviled Egg Salad Sandwich has all the flavors of deviled eggs on a toasted ciabatta roll! The perfect easy lunch or dinner!
Deviled eggs remind me of Easter.
They also remind me of my Great-Grandmother RoRo (you remember RoRo, right?).
This is just a hunch, but I am guessing that RoRo probably served deviled eggs after church on Easter.
It should also be noted that, at the time, I thought deviled eggs were the work of the Devil. We can forgive me because I was young and just didn’t appreciate the delectable combination of eggs, sweet relish, and paprika!
This Deviled Egg Salad Sandwich has everything you love about the addicting deviled eggs of your youth all wrapped up in a toasted ciabatta roll sandwich. In truth, it’s fabulous, really.
Of course like everything fabulous, this little sandwich has a back-story…
Does this scenario sound familiar? You’re running short on time; you’re famished; there are vast voids where real food should be in your fridge; but you have eggs and condiments.
Enter the Deviled Egg Salad Sandwich. Before culinary school it saved many a lunch around here!
When I don’t feel like cooking, or our work schedule has left zero time for grocery shopping, my husband and I eat dinner at Jason’s Deli. We split a sandwich and a salad bar, and as a result, after a few days, we inevitably end up with several leftover salads and a lot of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge!
These Deviled Egg Salad Sandwiches are my favorite way to repurpose the eggs.
A warm, lightly toasted roll is the perfect compliment to the smooth and creamy egg salad. The little crunch from the sweet relish and a little sprinkle of paprika pull it all together. Comforting, filling and delicious!
This is a universal sandwich. Adults and kids will dig right in and ask for seconds.
My husband LOVES these sandwiches! Almost as much, possibly more, than my tuna melts.
Instead of serving these on large rolls as lunch or dinner, you could spoon a little on small slider rolls or dinner rolls and serve them on a buffet or as a passed appetizer!
Full Disclosure: I don’t measure when I am making this sandwich; I do it all by taste. But for you I measured. You’re welcome. The sacrifices we make… 😉
