Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich | Egg Sandwich Recipe | Sandwich Recipes

When I saw a lovely Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich recipe in Pinterest, I immediately pinned it to my Bookmarked Recipes board. Sandwiches are not mom-approved dinners for an Indian, I know. Or maybe it is for some of you but in my home, bread was bought when someone was sick, that someone mostly being my mom who doesn't want to cook or wants to serve some toast in the morning instead of the usual fare. Even during my school days, my tiffin box barely had sandwiches in them. It was usually idlis or mini dosas or maggi noodles with vegetables or even ghee-roasted bananas.

I, on the other hand, buy bread when I am lazy. And make sandwiches for dinner when I am super lazy. TH loves them though and I find them passable for dinner so it's sort of a win-somewhat win situation.

I generally make pretty standard mint chutney sandwiches or guacamole sandwiches but decided to kick it up a notch and try these Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches. They were delicious, not to mention so flexible and customisable with pretty much whatever you have in hand.

Makes 4 large sandwiches (serves 2)
Recipe inspired by: Honey What's Cooking

3 eggs, hard boiled
A small bunch of fresh watercress leaves (or salad spinach)
2-3 stalks of fresh coriander leaves (cilantro)
2-3 stalks of spring onions (or chives or scallions)
1 ripe avocado
A few drops of lemon or lime juice

8 slices of bread, edges trimmed
2 tsp of mustard (or butter)

How to make Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich:

1. Wash the watercress leaves well and chop them fine. It's easy to find watercress in Singapore so I used that. if you can't, then use rocket leaves, fresh baby spinach, or any salad green you prefer.
