On days I don’t have much time to cook, egg salad on croissants hits the spot. It's also nice made with toasted bread or English muffins. Our family loves egg dishes of any kind. Luckily, my mom owns 30 chickens and keeps me supplied with farm-fresh ingredients.
"I like to serve this sandwich filling on bread that has been spread with Dijon mustard topped with lettuce and cheese," writes Phyllis Jarvinen, Webster, North Carolina. "With a side of chips and a sliced apple, it's one of my favorite lunches."
I like this combination of egg salad and tuna salad, rolled together in flour tortillas. Whether I eat them right away or in a day or two, they retain their flavor.—Francine Wingate, New Smyrna Beach, Florida
EGG SALAD is a refreshing, tasty change from lunch meat or peanut butter sandwiches. The extra preparation time is worth the effort.
Everyone raves about this version with its added zip. It's the touch of mustard and lemon juice that does it.

An aunt shared this wonderful recipe with me years ago when I was looking for some low-budget meals. The hearty ham and toasted bread make it a deliciously different kind of egg salad sandwich.
