No-Mayo Egg Salad Sandwich

by Destini on January 29, 2013

I know it is Tuesday and what is below isn’t vegan. But I leave tomorrow and wanted to share this recipe with you before I go! It is honestly one of my favorite sandwiches. In fact I am eating it for lunch now! It is a fantastic healthy, high protein meal and tastes fantastic. *note to self, look in thesaurus for alternative adjectives* For now, fantastic will have to do!

Ingredients: Yields 4 sandwiches

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1-2T Greek yogurt
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • pinch of smoked paprika
  • 2 stalks celery, washed and chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • handful of lettuce
  • 8 slices of whole grain bread, toasted

Directions: Place eggs in pot and cover with water by a 1inch. Bring water to boil. Turn off the heat, cover and let sit for 7 minutes. Drain water, and place eggs into ice water for a couple minutes. Peel eggs, add greek yogurt, spices & lemon juice. Mash with a fork, don’t over mash! Add in green onions & celery. Place on toasted bread over lettuce.

I usually have an open face sandwich with one piece of bread. I find this to be a very filling sandwich. Also you could use Mayo instead of Greek yogurt. It is completely up to you!

I leave tomorrow bright and early at 6:30am!!, we will have to get up at 4:20am YIKES. Once again…not a morning person. This will be hard!

Talk to you all soon!

Question: What is your favorite type of sandwich? What makes it taste soo good? Or what do you usually eat for lunch?

I love using Greek yogurt or hummus instead of Mayo. I have never been a Mayo fan. This might sound lame but my favorite sandwich is PB&Banana, and grilled is even better!
Usually for lunch I have a spinach salad or leftovers.

I absolutely love PB&Banana, but that is probably because it has PB in it. You could put PB on anything and it will be simply amazing!

Hummus would be fantastic! I have to share my favorite hummus recipe. I keep forgetting 😀

It is soooo good! Let me know how you like it!

Could I make this with just the egg whites?


Destini March 13, 2013 at 10:34 pm

Sure! With the smoked paprika it would be even more flavourful 🙂

Great recipe, but just wondering if you know the cal. / fat etc counts – I am using myfitnesspal and need to enter the information into the system – I guess I could enter the ingredients one by one…thanks
