Eggcellent Finger Sandwiches Recipe

Tartar sauce gives these little egg salad sandwiches a slightly sweet flavor. Cut into bell shapes with olive "clappers," they look festive for Christmas.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings


  • 4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
  • 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup tartar sauce
  • 16 slices swirled rye and pumpernickel bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 16 slices pimiento-stuffed olives, optional


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, bacon and tartar sauce. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • 2. Using a 2-1/2-in. bell-shaped cookie cutter, cut out two bells from each slice of bread. Lightly spread one side of each bell with butter. Spread egg mixture over half of buttered bells; top with remaining bells, buttered side down.
  • 3. If desired, garnish each sandwich with an olive slice, securing with a small amount of egg mixture. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Yield: 16 sandwiches.
