It’s Tiiiiiiimmmmmeeeeee for….
Cover, turn heat off and allow eggs to sit for 12 minutes.
Remove eggs from water with tongs and set in a bowl filled with ice water for 5 minutes.
Peel and coarsely chop.
In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper.
Add both onions.
Fold in chopped eggs.
Slice the pitas in half and place some spinach, and a strip of bacon inside each.
Add the egg salad.
With tongs, remove eggs and transfer to a bath of ice water. Have them sit for 5 minutes, then peel and coarsely chop. *It is SO easy to remove the shell this way ~ it just slides right off!*
Finish by adding some egg salad. If you don’t, what’s the point of an egg salad sandwich?
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and The Ultimate Egg Salad Sandwich earned…ah, I’m teetering between a 3 1/2 and 4. The thing that’s holding me back from a 4 is the bacon. I think I’d much prefer it without it. The saltiness was good, but I think it’d be better on the side.
Overall, the sandwich was a winner and the family liked them a lot, so I’ll definitely be adding them to our menu again!
My one complaint was that I would have added at least another half of the recipe because there wasn’t enough for four of us to eat it for dinner and we aren’t very big eaters. I tasted it, but ate something else for dinner. 🙁
Because that’s what momma bear does.
My daughter also thought it was “very sneaky” sticking the spinach into it.
I told her it wasn’t my doing that that was what was called for.
I’m just not that smart.
Oh yeah, the changes I made…instead of light mayonnaise, I used regular; substituted red onion for sweet onion; green onions for chives only because the store I went to was out; forgot the cucumber; used spinach instead of lettuce; and used Pocket-Thins Flatbreads instead of pitas.
