Classic Egg Salad Sandwiches

DivasCanCook's picture
This chunky, classic egg salad sandwich recipe is easy, quick, and downright satisfying! It has just the right amount of spices and relishes but feel free to adjust the seasonings to fit your tastebuds. Hot sauce anyone? I serve it up plain with just a sprinkling of paprika when I'm making it for my son, but I like to add red onion, leaf lettuce and tomatoes to mine.
