Reviews for Eggcellent Finger Sandwiches
"While I did not go for a Christmas theme for the sandwich bread, I made a few modifications. First, I do not like tartar sauce, so I substituted a mayo-based sandwich spread which I think tasted a lot better since it already had diced pickle in it. Egg salad always benefits from that! Also, a dash of hot sauce and about 1 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning also brightens the flavor."
