Broiled Egg Salad Sandwiches

One of my mother's friends gave her this recipe in the late '40s. I grew up eating these sandwiches, and they've been a staple with my own family. Although our children have left home, I still make this dish often for my husband and me to enjoy. -Barbara Suetholz, Racine, Wisconsin

    <p>I omitted the saltines and the milk when I made this recipe. It is a good easy light dinner or lunch recipe. I like egg salad but had never thought about having it as a hot sandwich. Thanks for the recipe.</p>

    @ Tommie G, you can always reduce the amount of sodium in the recipe, use garlic powder instead of garlic salt, use low sodium saltines, as well as use light mayonnaise instead of full fat mayo - or even no fat/fat-free mayo if you like that. And even use 2%, 1% or skim milk and not use whole milk. It is really not that difficult to "doctor" up the recipe to have less fat and less sodium, but still taste good.But there is no need to disrespect another's recipe on here and talk about the nation's obesity rates. It isn't the OP's fault that the nation is becoming obese. But with comments like yours, it does show a lack of disrespect for others that is becoming epidemic in our society.

    With 54 grams of fat and 1,034 mg of sodium, I will never make this recipe. No wonder this nation is suffering from an epidimic of obesity.
