An egg mayonnaise sandwich is a comfort food that is easy to prepare and is tasty into the bargain. But it can also get boring after a while if you use the same old ingredients every time, sliced eggs, mayonnaise and two slices of bread. This article will offer some alternative ways to enjoy the traditional egg mayonnaise sandwich that will be sure to please.
Rather than using your normal brand of full fat mayonnaise, why not use reduced fat ranch or blue cheese dressing? As you chop or slice the eggs, place a small amount of the dressing onto the bread, and spread it as you would with butter.
Alternatively, just place a tablespoon of ranch or blue cheese dressing onto the top of the eggs. It’s surprising how different the egg mayonnaise sandwich will taste. It will still taste good and refreshing, but it will not be full of fat. This is a healthier alternative to the traditional egg mayonnaise sandwich.
When I make an egg mayonnaise sandwich, I also add vegetables to the egg and dressing mixture before applying it to the bread. Thinly sliced celery, green pepper or even sliced mushrooms will work well.
When all the ingredients have been blended together, season it with black pepper or a sprinkling of herbs. It gives the egg mayonnaise sandwich a crunchy texture, plus, you can squeeze in some vegetables too.
An egg mayonnaise sandwich does not have to be out of bounds for people who are watching their cholesterol levels. If you choose to use an egg alternative, such as Egg Beaters, you can still enjoy the genuine taste of real eggs, but without the cholesterol content.
Simply pour a small amount into the pan and cook as you would scrambled eggs. Once the mixture has cooled down, mix in your dressing, and/ or mayonnaise and any other ingredients you wish to add. Season the mixture and then add it to your bread.
When preparing an egg mayonnaise sandwich, you do not have to use 2 slices of bread. Try alternatives such as pita bread, chapattis (Indian bread), naan (Indian bread) and other types of bread. Cut the bread lengthways and stuff the prepared egg mayonnaise into the middle of the bread.
You can also finish this off with lettuce, sliced onion, tomato and meat. An egg mayonnaise sandwich can be easily transformed into a more exciting and tasty meal option if you just use your imagination and add your favourite ingredients.
