Egg Salad with Dill & Chives

There is nothing like a really good egg salad sandwich. I think adding some fresh dill takes it to the next level. This was another sandwich I served at the Serafina trunk show event.

Egg Salad with Dill & Chives

Makes 40 sandwiches

8 hard-cooked eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbs finely-chopped fresh dill
6 Tbs unsalted butter, room temperature
20 white bread
chives, chopped

Peel eggs and place into a medium bowl. Slice eggs and then coarsely mash them with the back of a fork. Add mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and dill; stir until well blended.

Note: This mixture can be refrigerated, covered, up to two days.

Spread butter onto one side of each slice of bread. Spread the buttered side of 10 slices of bread with 2 tablespoons egg mixture. Top with remaining slices of bread, buttered side down.

Carefully cut the crusts from sandwich with a long, sharp knife. Cut in half diagonally, then cut in half again.

Put chopped chives on a small plate and spread one edge with mayonnaise to coat well. Roll edges in chives.

  1. Your sandwiches look so elegant! A tea sandwich done well is a beautiful thing. Offer people a filled roll and they will say they couldn’t possibly eat all that – but a plate of delicate sandwiches – they will devour one, two, then half a dozen.
