Egg Salad Sammies

Ingredients:

8 hard boiled eggs

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1Tbs. Dijon mustard

1 Tbs. chopped fresh chives

1/4 cup thinly sliced celery

1/2 tsp kosher salt

Freshly ground pepper to taste

8 thin slices of sourdough bread, toasted if desired

8 small better lettuce leaves

Directions:

The egg salads tastes better if it sits for a while before serving so, if possible, make it a few hours ahead of time and refrigerate it.  Slice the eggs into a bowl.  Then, using 2 table knives, scissor-cut them into smaller pieces.  Add the mayo, mustard, chives, celery, salt and a few grinds of pepper and mix to combine evenly.

To make each sandwich, top a slice of bread with about 1/4 of the egg salad and then with 2 lettuce leaves.  Top with a second slice of bread and press down gently.  Cut in half to serve.  Makes 4 sandwiches.
